Windows Tools Patch Description
Windows Tools Patch acts as though it’s got everything that you’d need for PC security in its rip-off of Windows Security Center’s interface, but each and every tool at Windows Tools Patch’s disposal is, in reality, just a misrepresented attack that wastes your time and creates fraudulent software-purchasing circumstances. Despite pretending to offer system scans, active threat detection, anti-phishing protection and other features that anyone would benefit from having, Windows Tools Patch’s real capabilities are limited to the creation of fake alerts, blocking your actual security programs and even redirecting your web browser. Since Windows Tools Patch is only a ‘tool’ in the vulgar sense and certainly isn’t a benefit to your computer’s safety, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers suggest that you delete Windows Tools Patch from your PC by way of scans from the appropriately reputable anti-malware programs that Windows Tools Patch vainly tries to imitate.
The Real Designs Behind Windows Tools Patch’s Hapless Features
Windows Tools Patch may look trustworthy enough on the outside, but this is purely due to Windows Tools Patch copying most of its appearance from legitimate Windows programs – as well as other types of fake anti-malware programs that also fall in the FakeVimes family. While Virus Doctor is the original anti-virus scamware from which Windows Tools Patch is derived, recent members of this family have taken to a medical or detective-themed branding, can also be identified both visually and by scans from suitable anti-malware programs.Windows Maintenance Guard, Live Enterprise Suite, Windows Basic Antivirus, Smart Anti-Malware Protection, Windows Protection Master, Windows Advanced User Patch, Windows Interactive Security, Internet Security Suite, Windows Functionality Checker, Windows Safety Wizard, Windows Custom Management, Windows Antivirus Machine, Windows Efficiency Accelerator, Windows Control Series, Windows Expert Series, Windows Guardian Angel, Windows Protection Maintenance, Windows Safety Manager, Windows Privacy Extension, Smart Engine, Fast Antivirus 2009, Windows Safety Module, Windows Daily Adviser, My Security Wall, Windows Sleek Performance, Windows Antihazard Solution, Windows Secure Workshop, Windows Enterprise Defender, Antivirus Smart Protection, Windows Performance Catalyst, Windows PRO Scanner, Windows Shielding Utility, Windows Secure Surfer, Windows Privacy Module, Best Malware Protection, Home Safety Essentials, Windows Profound Security, Windows Threats Destroyer, Windows Process Director, Windows ProSecurity Scanner, System Protection Tools, Windows Security Renewal, Windows Enterprise Suite, Windows Managing System, Windows Be-on-Guard Edition, Windows Safety Series, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Ultimate Safeguard, XP Smart Security, Windows Smart Partner, Windows Virus Hunter, Windows Pro Web Helper, My Security Engine, Windows Secure Workstation, Smart Security, Windows Antivirus Rampart, Virus Doctor, Windows Safety Maintenance, Activate Ultimate Protection, Windows Active Defender, Windows Crucial Scanner, Windows Premium Console, Windows High-End Protection, Windows Active Guard, Windows Virtual Security, PC Live Guard, CleanUp Antivirus, VirusSecurity, Keep Center Keeper, Windows Telemetry Center, Windows Custodian Utility, Windows Antivirus Care, Windows Ultimate Security Patch, Windows Privacy Counsel, Personal Security Sentinel, Windows Smart Warden, Windows Safety Toolkit, Windows Protection Unit, Windows Internet Booster, Smart Internet Protection 2011, Windows Multi Control System, Windows Web Combat, Windows Malware Sleuth, Windows Private Shield, Windows Guard Tools, Windows Firewall Constructor, Windows Turnkey Console, Windows Antivirus Release, Windows Pro Safety Release, Windows Proactive Safety, My Security Shield, Windows Antivirus Patch, Windows Pro Safety, Windows Advanced Security Center, Windows Maintenance Suite, Windows Web Commander, Security Master AV, Windows Risk Minimizer, Windows No-Risk Agent, PrivacyGuard PRO, Windows No-Risk Center, Windows Safeguard Upgrade, Windows Pro Defence, Internet Security Essentials, Windows Problems Stopper, Windows Performance Adviser, Windows First-Class Protector, Windows Pro Solutions, Best Antivirus Software, Windows Stability Guard, Windows Proprietary Advisor, Windows Software Keeper, Windows ProSecure Scanner, Windows Custom Safety, Windows Security Suite, Enterprise Suite, Windows Shield Tool, Windows Pro Rescuer, Windows Interactive Safety, Strong Malware Defender, Additional Guard, Smart Virus Eliminator, Windows Debug Center, Windows Virtual Firewall, Windows System Defender, Windows Secure Web Patch, Windows Health Keeper, Windows Software Saver, Windows Defence Counsel, Windows PC Aid, Windows Warding System, Windows Anti-Malware Patch, Total Anti Malware Protection, Windows Advanced Toolkit, Live PC Care, Anti-Malware Lab, Windows AntiHazard Center, Personal Internet Security 2011, Windows Personal Doctor, Windows AntiHazard Helper, Windows Premium Guard, Security Antivirus, Windows Instant Scanner, Windows Guard Solutions, Windows Care Taker, Windows Premium Defender, Extra Antivirus, Windows Safety Checkpoint, Windows Virtual Angel, Windows Trouble Taker, Home Malware Cleaner, Windows Activity Debugger, Windows Security System, Smart Internet Protection 2012, Windows Defending Center, Windows Abnormality Checker and Windows Home Patron. However, other variants that can be considered clones of Windows Tool Patch and Virus Doctor, will try to convince you that it’s just as helpful as the actual anti-malware products that you’d use for its removal, but, unlike them, Windows Tools Patch is strictly in the business of providing fake threat alerts.
The Patch That May Save Your PC from Windows Tools Patch
As a rogue anti-virus program, Windows Tools Patch is also equipped with browser-hijacking features that allow it to jam its own website into your web browser or redirect you away from PC security domains. Nonetheless, all of these features aren’t nearly as significant as Windows Tools Patch’s ability to block security-related programs. In cases of some Windows tools, like the Task Manager, you may even find that Windows Tools Patch has attempted to replace them wholesale. These issues make it paramount that you use a remote drive to boot your OS, use a second OS or boot into Safe Mode to disable Windows Tools Patch before you run a scan to delete Windows Tools Patch for good.
Since Windows Tools Patch was identified in early March of 2012, your anti-malware software may require updates of its own to detect and remove both Windows Tools Patch and any related PC threats that may have assisted with Windows Tools Patch’s installation. If possible, SpywareRemove.com malware experts urge you always to update your security scanners prior to a scan, since this will provide the necessary definitions for recently-discovered scamware like Windows Tools Patch.
