How to get rid of Windows Performance Adviser?

admin | April 24, 2012

Windows Performance Adviser creates an illusion of being a powerful anti-virus program. While it states it’s there to help you combat viruses, the actual plot is to steal your hard-earned money. The above description makes this program a rogue anti-spyware that infects PCs and then keeps trying to persuade the victims that the system will go down the drain unless the paid version of the software is purchased.

Windows Performance Adviser

Windows Performance Adviser does not get on a workstation like normal trustworthy piece of software do. It comes the targeted system, being preceded by some trojans that manage to sneak by the firewall and other security measures. Although tiny, this trojan opens up a gateway for dragging in the rest of malicious files and other malware components. The rogueware starts with a scan which first pops up when the program’s installation completes and further keeps showing up every time you launch Windows. This scan looks real but isn’t such at all. It ends up with the report that must not possibly be treated real or credible whatsoever. The idea there is to make you scared and try to persuade you that the multiple alleged infections on your computer are going to ruin it. That way, it’s definitely easy for the malware to push its victims paying the fee for registering the full build. We hope that none of you reading this article has actually paid for Windows Performance Adviser yet – anyway, that’s a really incorrectidea. The only right solution is to remove this stinky pest off your computer.
