How to remove Privacy Center?
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.

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.

Privacy Center is classified as Rogue Anti-Spyware. After infecting a user’s system, it proceeds to scare its victim into buying the “product” by displaying fake security messages, stating that your computer is infected with spyware and only Privacy Center can help you to remove it after you download the trial version. As soon as the victim downloads Privacy Center trial version, it pretends to scan your computer and shows a grossly exaggerated amount of non-existent errors. Then, Privacy Center offers to buy the full version to fix these false errors. If the user agrees, Privacy Center does not only fix the errors, but it also takes the user’s money and may even install additional spyware into the victim’s computer.
Some Rogue Anti-Spyware, such as Privacy Center, may offer users to buy it after the victim clicks on a banner or a pop-up while surfing the internet. Usually, a Trojan is installed to a victim’s computer after clicking on the advertisement. It then proceeds to download or even install Privacy Center, which is another way for Rogue Anti-Spyware to spread itself.
Most of rogue Anti-Spyware, such as Privacy Center, is nearly impossible to remove manually.
