Windows Accurate Protector.



Windows Accurate Protector is a new member from a dangerous family of malwares that share the same GUI and all display identical notifications that are expected to make users scared about their PCs.
After making its victims concerned about malware found inside the system, Windows Accurate Protector together with earlier released Windows Armature Master offers to purchase its ‘reputable’ licensed version which in reality is nothing else but the same annoying cyber threat that has no capabilities to find and remove malware. Though it may declare that it has found numerous viruses on your machine, Windows Accurate Protector reports only invented malware that has nothing common with your PC.
In order to swindle users’ money, this scam displays tons of annoying system scanners and alerts. It launches after some unnoticeable registry modifications made that make this scam active as soon as PC is rebooted. Infected computer starts following all Windows Accurate Protector commands and sometimes even disables PC users from their normal work. Additionally, this scam will be launched once the PC is rebooted and will start displaying its continuous alerts that MUST be ignored no matter what! If you notice any of these alerts. 

Removal:

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 Accurate Protector, 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.
