Windows Tool Description
Scraping off Windows Tool’s appearance of legitimacy allows you to see the true nature of this program – a hostile rogue entity that will disable portions of your computer and take control over what it doesn’t disable. The slang meaning of the word ‘tool’ is entirely appropriate in this case, because Windows Tool has no functions except to attack your computer and bully you into giving your credit card number to criminals. Shove aside any treacherous ‘help’ this rogue product tries to give you, and instead delete Windows Tool with real security programs that will actually do the job right.
Stay Safe to Keep Windows Tool’s Claws from Sinking In
Some sources have indicated that Windows Tool spreads through the Microsoft Security Essentials Alert trojan. This trojan infects your computer in the quietest way possible, and afterwards presents a desktop alert regarding an Unknown Win32/Trojan infection. The key here is to realize that this alert is a fake used to get you to install Windows Tool or another rogue program.
Rogue anti-spyware products also circulate in other ways besides using trojans to do their dirty work. They can be packaged in widely-distributed files on freeware or P2P download sites as well as seeded through convincing-looking malicious websites.
Once installed, rogue anti-spyware products like Windows Tool will take over your computer through registry changes that let them run and pop up before you can even access your desktop. At that point, you’ll be facing a new set of problems from Windows Tool itself.
Are You Ready for All the Attacks Windows Tool Can Drop On You?
Every rogue anti-spyware product uses a certain well-worn kit of tricks, and Windows Tool doesn’t break new ground with its choices. Sadly, all these attacks are still capable of causing serious damage, even if they lack creativity.
- Windows Tool will use fake alerts and errors as excuses for closing programs, blocking websites and just for annoying you with false positives. Reliable anti-malware programs won’t show these alerts because the infections and problems aren’t really there!
- Windows Tool will block programs central to running your computer safely, such as Windows Task Manager and security programs. This state of affairs will remain until you remove Windows Tool, no matter how many times you try to cleanse the infections it reports.
- Many rogue anti-spyware programs are also known as browser hijackers, and Windows Tool may redirect your browser to dangerous sites.
Websites affiliated with Windows Tool are in the business of processing fraudulent charges, stealing money and exploiting confidential information. In short, you shouldn’t have a thing to do with these crooks, and instead should delete Windows Tool rather than offer it your trust.
