Windows Antihazard Solution Screenshot 1Windows Antihazard Solution is a new clone of Virus Doctor and similar rogue anti-malware programs from its scamware family. Although both Windows Antihazard Solution's name and its appearance may lead you to think that Windows Antihazard Solution could be a handy anti-virus utility, Windows Antihazard Solution doesn't have any true ability to find or remove PC threats of any kind. Instead of preventing attacks against your PC, Windows Antihazard Solution actually will cause them via browser redirects and by blocking unrelated programs that could help you delete Windows Antihazard Solution. As a hazard itself with nothing but stealing money on its mind, Windows Antihazard Solution should be deleted once you have access to anti-malware software and are able to disable Windows Antihazard Solution. The latter usually can be accomplished by resorting to standard security procedures such as Safe Mode that are available to all operating systems that Windows Antihazard Solution might infect.

Don't Dance to the Tune of Windows Antihazard Solution's Fake Analytics

Windows Antihazard Solution, like other fake anti-virus scanners that descend from the FakeVimes family, has the ability to create system warnings and imitative scans, but these sequences will always contain inaccurate information. Windows Antihazard Solution may report PC threats that aren't on your hard drive, issue alerts about fake application damage or falsely warn you about your PC being hijacked for bot attacks. While Windows Antihazard Solution's errors may look realistic and very similar to legitimate warnings from real anti-malware products, you should not believe what they state.

Because Windows Antihazard Solution will launch without your consent whenever Windows uses normal startup methods, you may quickly find that there's almost no escape from Windows Antihazard Solution's badgering. SpywareRemove.com malware research team recommends that you boot into Safe Mode, boot into a second OS or boot from a removable device (such as a USB thumb drive) to disable Windows Antihazard Solution's start up routine. At that point, removing Windows Antihazard Solution should be a simple matter of scanning your PC with competent anti-malware software. These recommendations also hold true for related PC threats, including Privacy Guard Pro, PrivacyGuard Pro 2.0, Extra Antivirus, Fast Antivirus 2009, Presto TuneUp, Windows Security Suite, Smart Virus Eliminator, Packed.Generic.245, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Enterprise Suite, Enterprise Suite, Additional Guard, Live PC Care, PC Live Guard, Live Enterprise Suite, Security Antivirus, My Security Wall, CleanUp Antivirus and Smart Security.

Being Your Own Solution to Windows Antihazard Solution

Although manual removal of Windows Antihazard Solution is inadvisable due to the high likelihood of Windows Antihazard Solution concealing components and changing the Windows Registry, SpywareRemove.com malware experts have noted some cautionary procedures that you can use to keep your PC safe from Windows Antihazard Solution. These include the following:

  • Avoiding suspicious websites and disabling exploitable browser features (such as JavaScript) for untrustworthy sites.

  • Keeping security and anti-malware software updated to allow for accurate detection and deletion of Windows Antihazard Solution. Although Windows Antihazard Solution may attempt to block these programs, using some of the aforementioned methods to disable Windows Antihazard Solution should be enough to let you access them and delete Windows Antihazard Solution.
