Windows Error Correction.

Windows Error Correction is a typical example of rogue anti-spyware that presents itself as legitimate security program while it’s not.
If it happens for you to find Windows Error Correction installed on your computer, be sure that it was installed with a help of Trojan. It may be that your legitimate spyware removal tools haven’t been upgraded and Trojans used some security vulnerabilities. This dangerous rogue application should be removed as soon as possible because it may let more viruses inside and additionally leave your computer completely useless.

After being secretly installed without any user’s permission asked, Windows Error Correction virus trial version will also be set to start as soon as PC is rebooted. That’s because of some modifications made by the same Trojans that spread this scamware silently. Windows Error Correction will then start to interrupt its victims with fake alerts that announce numerous viruses detected. They will also be followed by scanners also reporting dangerous viruses found and then recommending purchasing and installing ‘licensed’ version. However, Windows Error Correction is useless and reports only the ones files that have nothing to do with real computer’s situation.


Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:  
  • [random].exe 
 Location of the infection:
  1.  %UserProfile%\Application Data\[random].exe 
Registry Entries to be removed. (Take a backup of registry, before editing it)
  1.  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastui.exe “Debugger” = ‘svchost.exe’
  2.  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\egui.exe “Debugger” = ‘svchost.exe’
  3.  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\ekrn.exe “Debugger” = ‘svchost.exe’
Although it is possible to manually remove Windows Error Correction, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
