Though it may look quite trustworthy at the first sight, malware just like its earlier variants PC optimizer or PrivacyGuard is distributed through phony online scanners, fake video codecs and trojan horses. Trojans infiltrate computers without being recognized by any security software and then drop some fake malware files to detect them later. So, don’t be fooled when Privacy Corrector says that there are numerous infections on your machine! The only scam on your machine is the same Privacy Corrector.
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
Location of the infection:
- C:\Program Files\PC\PrivacyCorrector\
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “PrivacyCorrector.exe”
EnableLUA = 0×00000000
Although it is possible to manually remove Privacy Corrector, 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.
