 Such scams as Windows Safemode are spread with a reason to rip users off: firstly they pretend to be legitimate fragment but later start asking users to purchase the ‘licensed version’ in order to fix some problems detected. Of course, anything announced by Windows Safemode need to be fixed – this program is fake PC optimization tool which may affect computer’s performance if simply ignored and left on your computer. If you start noticing alerts from this malware, firstly you should think about your security software: only ‘licensed’ anti-spywares will help you to avoid secret intrusions.
Windows Safemode is very close with System Diagnostic, Win Scan or Windows Tool malwares that have been released earlier. Scammers used even the same GUI and changed only the name of these programs, so you will know how this scam acts if you have been affected by one of them. Just after Windows Safemode enters your machine via malicious files whose downloads are bundled with Trojans, this scam starts offering to check your computer for hard drive problems. You can be sure that will be reported numerous of issues that need to be handled. You should remember that these problems and viruses are nothing else but harmless files in your system. Besides, users are bombarded with the numerous popup alerts that will be annoying to death because they will interrupt your browsing and normal computer’s activities.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
  • [random].exe
Location of the infection:
  1. %TempDir%\[random].exe
Registry Entries to be removed. (Take a backup of registry, before editing it)
  •  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce "[random]" 
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\msseces.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
Although it is possible to manually remove Windows Safemode, 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.
