Windows Rescue Center.




Windows Rescue Center is a rogue anti-spyware program that displays fake security alerts and non-existent infections.
This rogue is typically installed through the use of Trojans that come from fake online scanners and infected websites. Instead of allowing the video to be shown, the Trojan will instead download and install Windows Rescue Center. The rogue program  will pretend to scan your computer and detect malicious files but not allow them to be removed until the program is purchased. It wants to scare you into purchasing it. If you find that your computer is infected then use our removal instructions below to remove Windows Rescue Center and related malware.

While Windows Rescue Center is running it will also display fake security warnings and alerts on your computer. These alerts will state that an active infection has been found and that you should purchase Windows Rescue Center to remove found viruses and to protect your computer against other malware. Windows Rescue Center will also block certain programs saying that they are infected. It may hijack your web browser as well.  You shouldn't download anything from that website.

Windows Rescue Center was created to trick you into thinking that your computer has all sorts of malware so that you then purchase it. The reality is that Windows Rescue Center is a scam. If you have already purchased the program, then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.

Removal:


Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\AppData\[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 Rescue Center, 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.
