Windows Health Center.


Windows Health Center is yet another malware that you should be aware of.
However, Windows Health Center belongs to rogue anti-spywares category, so it will give you nothing good but more viruses inside the system, continuous alerts and suggestions to purchase its license. Before you pay for something suggested in this way, run a reputable anti-spyware. It can be easily predetermined that Windows Health Center will be detected as spyware which has to be uninstalled as soon as possible.

In most cases, Windows Health Center is capable of infiltrating into those computers that are poorly protected and have no ‘licensed’ software installed. You should keep in mind that having only some unpaid version of anti-spyware can’t guarantee the highest protection against such scams as Windows Health Center, so you are recommended of having the ‘full’ versions of anti-virus and anti-spyware. For getting on board undetected, it will use Trojans, spam emails, freeware downloads and other widely spread means of distribution.

Once inside your system, Windows Health Center will typically start displaying fabricated popup alerts telling about viruses. Besides, it will ‘scan’ your computer in order to show how seriously infected your computer is and then will prompt you to install Windows Health Center ‘licensed’ software. According to its fake messages, only this version is powerful to remove numerous infections detected and will eliminate privacy violations found on your machine. Of course, Windows Health Center is useless in any of these functions because it is a malware by itself. 



Removal:

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:  
  1. [random].exe
 Location of the infection:
  1.  %AppData%\[random].exe
Registry Entries to be removed. (Take a backup of registry, before editing it)
  •  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon "Shell" = "%AppData%\[random].exe" 

Although it is possible to manually remove Windows Health Center, 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.
