Windows Examination Utility.

Windows Examination Utility is a rogue anti-spyware program that displays fake security alerts and non-existent infections.
Windows Examination Utility is annoying scamware which runs every time computer is rebooted. That’s because of Trojans that secretly modify PC’s registry just after they manage to come inside the system. While running, Windows Examination Utility additionally starts reporting invented cyber threats. These files are also created after this scamware manages to get inside the system, so never believe its ‘threats’ reported. You must keep in mind that as soon as you see the program called Windows Examination Utility, you must remove it from your machine.

Additionally, when Windows Examination Utility is installed, it starts running each time PC is rebooted. Each of its alerts is created to frighten computer users about dangerous malware detected and make them purchase Windows Examination Utility’s license for its removal. However, just like the trialware, licensed version is fake, so never buy and remove Windows Examination Utility! You may have heard about this scamware already, because it looks and acts identically as Windows Anticrashes Utility,Windows Troubles Solver and many others.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\[random].exe
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\afwserv.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastsvc.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 Examination Utility, 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.
