Windows Accelerating Utlity.

Windows Accelerating Utility is a true cyber threat that will never leave you alone until you remove it from your computer.
Though it may look legitimate, in reality it has no capabilities to detect any kind of malware and it is based on fake viruses reporting. All this is done for one big reason – to scare computer users into purchasing its fake license. As you can see, paying for this program is not recommended by any computer expert, so don’t waste your time and remove Windows Accelerating Utility just after you notice it.
Windows Accelerating Utility, just like other cyber threats from this braviax201102 family, is distributed by classic means – through insecure downloads, such as fake video codecs or scanners. Instead of those programs, users simply get infected with Windows Accelerating Utility malware which additionally starts playing havoc on the compromised PC. It means continuous system scanners, alerts and notifications telling that your PC has tons of viruses inside.
As you can see, falling into Windows Accelerating Utility alerts is quite dangerous and they should be simply ignored instead of being taken serious. You must remove Windows Accelerating Utlity once you notice it and never purchase its fake license. If you have already purchased it, contact your credit card company to dispute the charges.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\[random].exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “RunInvalidSignatures” = ’1?
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PhishingFilter “Enabled” = ’0?
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “CheckExeSignatures” = ‘no’
Although it is possible to manually remove Windows Accelerating Utlity, 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.
