Privacy Center - How to remove?
What is Privacy Center?
Privacy Center is a rogue security program – a fake application, which is supposed to take care of your privacy, but takes care of your money instead. This parasite typically enters the system by using the infamous trojan Zlob, which can be found in porn/warez websites disguised as a video codec. Privacy Center uses disinformation to trick the user into purchasing it’s “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the trial.
Once inside and active, Privacy Center will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an information leak present on the system. While this may coincidentally be true, Privacy Center has neither the ability to provide such info, nor take care of the beforementioned leak. Much like any other rogue, Privacy Center will perform fake system scans, which produce greatly exaggerated results, further urging the user to pay money.
Privacy Center is not only a huge annoyance (the popups will drive you clinically insane), but also somewhat of a threat due to it’s habit of hijacking the browser and redirecting you to sites of dubious nature to say the least.
Privacy Center is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.

Manual Privacy Center removal
Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove Privacy 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 using Spyhunter or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.
It is impossible to list all file names and locations of modern parasites. You can identify remaining parasites, other Privacy Center infected files and get help in Privacy Center removal by using Spyhunter scanner.
