Windows Power Expansion.

Windows Power Expansion is a dangerous anti-spyware tool that hails from the popular group of malwares pretending to detect viruses but then offering their licensed version which is paid.
You should remember Windows Simple Protector, Windows Background Protector or Windows Lowlevel Solution.  Windows Power Expansion uses this misleading technique for ripping people off and also stealing their credit card details. So, please never purchase Windows Power Expansion and uninstall it ASAP.

Just like most of the rogues, unregistered software of Windows Power Expansion is usually spread through Trojans that are dropped into the potential host system secretly. They use security vulnerabilities for getting inside undetected what means that your security software needs to be updated on time if you want to avoid Windows Power Expansion or other rogues. Additionally, this scam sets the system to start once the machine becomes active and drops some fake files that will be detected as malicious.


Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:  
  • [random].exe
Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\Application Data\[random].exe
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\egui.exe “Debugger” = ‘svchost.exe’
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastui.exe “Debugger” = ‘svchost.exe’
Although it is possible to manually remove Windows Power Expansion, 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.
