Control Center (being nowadays also distributed under the name of ControlCenter or CCenter) is one of the most recent promptly spreading dangerous tools attacking lots of PCs. At the same time, this is simply another fake anti-malware application that has the number of harmful rogue tools. By the way, it is nothing but a direct clone of widely spread internet hazard known as the Control Components, which is a well-known rogue anti-malware tool that, regretfully, tricked and fooled so many of unwarned PC users worldwide. This corrupt application is normally planted onto computers via Trojan viruses that penetrate to PCs undetected and configure the compromised system to act in conformity with Control Center malicious plan.

You need to know that ControlCenter actually inherited all of its most harmful peculiarities to finally become even more successful than its precessor in terms of fooling PC users all around the world. And the techniques applied by it are still very traditional though – everything is done just to mislead the victim, persuade the PC user to believe that his/her machine is really infected and requires a remedy in the form of Control Center full licensed version. Trojans that bring Control Center to the PC normally attach themselves to some corrupt web downloads, spam e-mail attachments, or even directly penetrate using security software flaws on the compromised computer. You need to be aware of the methods applied in order to gain such malicious effect: they normally involve triggering fake alerts and scanners that report non-existing infections. Control Center would be launched each time you launch your computer and reveal itself through its exaggerated popup alerts and fabricated scanners that report a variety of infections – so typical for lots of other malware. These detected threats are then claimed to be resident on your computer. At the same time, in fact they do not simply exist and have nothing to do with your PC. All these fake system scanners pursue a single goal to persuade you to purchase Control Center full commercial version which is claimed to be able to greatly assist you in removing these infections. The trick is that in reality you won’t be able to try getting rid of any of the “reported” malware until you are finally persuaded to purchase Control Center commercial software. The worthless fake utilities being a part of Control Center are as follows: Cookie guarder, Surf Protector, Registry doctor, Update manager and a few others. All of them are useless and should be avoided at all costs.

We therefore seriously urge you not to purchase Control Center and not to believe in its faulty promises. Even though Control Center would declare that it is the only solution to remove all the scams and viruses detected, in reality it is nothing but a rogue, simply aiming to steal hard earned money from you. The best solution to perform would be to permanently and completely delete Control Center as soon as it has been detected on a computer system. It is of utmost importance to use a trustworthy anti-spyware to protect your PC from this and the other rogues. So why don’t you use Gridinsoft Trojan Killer to permanently get rid of it?

That’s why complex malware removal is the best way to get rid of rogue Control Center.
