Windows Oversight Center has so far the only aim – to make you pay for its full version, just like most of the malwares nowadays. For this purpose Windows Oversight Center after successful installation inside of the attacked machine arranges bogus system scans of your machine, finally reporting plenty of fake PC problems, errors and issues. Windows Oversight Center says that they must be eliminated and fixed as soon as possible. This is when Windows Oversight Center offers itself as a solution to accomplish this task, on the condition that you first pay for it. However, the fact is that Windows Oversight Center is not able to fix all such problems, cause they do not really exist. The only real problem with your PC is Windows Oversight Center itself, cause this is the virus and nothing else.

Windows Oversight Center automatic remover:

Before downloading and running GridinSoft Trojan Killer for removal of Windows Oversight Center several additional preparatory steps need to be done. This is necesary, because Windows Oversight Center blocks your Internet connection, and you will not be able to run GridinSoft Trojan Killer. In order to prevent this blockage please take the following sequence of steps:
1. Make sure that your Operating System is tuned up in such a mode that hidden files and folders of your PC are viewable. The instruction on how to do it can be found here for Windows XP and here for Windows Vista/7.
2. Choose “View” tab in the window that appeared, and in the advanced settings choose the option “Show hidden files and folders”. Press OK.
3. Go to the folder %User Profile%\Application Data\Microsoft.

Important! Depending on the Operating System of your computer, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7.

In other words, the folder that should be opened is as follows, depending on the operating system:
%SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows XP
%SysDrive%Users[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows Vista/7.

In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Oversight Center (possibly with the icon of *avi file), having some random name.
4. Rename the above-mentioned executable file into some other name of your choice and restart your computer. Upon the system restart Windows Oversight Center will no longer block your Internet browser.
5. Download the latest version of GridinSoft Trojan Killer to your infected computer, install it and run it.

The procedure for removal of Windows Oversight Center is similar to the removal of Windows Remedy virus as shown on the video below:
