Windows Restore - How to remove?
Windows Restore has been announced by computer experts to be another fraudulent application, fake computer analysis program, which must be eliminated just like any other malware. Though it may use some tricks for making you think that it is legitimate, like Critical Error alerts or other, Windows Restore tries only to rip users off. It tells for the user that his computer has numerous problems with hard disk but the licensed version will fix his machine. In fact, Windows Restore just like earlier released Windows Repair has no powers to eliminate any kind of hard drive error. Even more, it ‘detects’ invented files that are usually dropped just after its secret infiltration. So, have no doubts that you must remove Windows Restore. Please follow our removal guide written below and always protect yourself by installing ‘licensed’ anti-spyware’s version. This will give you real time protection.
Windows Restore infiltrates targeted computers with a help of Trojans. It won’t let you know when it intends to access your computer but always looks for security vulnerabilities to get inside. Besides, you may get infected with Windows Restore after you install fake video codecs for example, that are foolishly required for watching videos online. Additional activity of Windows Restore stays the same just like any other cyber threats that have been found earlier: malware starts displaying deceitful popup ads, alerts and scanners, besides, it tends to disable users from the Internet. It can be easily said that the basic intension behind all these symptoms is to make users believe that they have issues with their hard drive:
The system has been restored after a critical error. Data integrity and hard drive integrity verification required.
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file System32496A8300. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware.
Windows can’t find hard disk space. Hard drive error
Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.
After making them scared about detections, Windows Restore offers for its victims to purchase its license. However, there should be no comments about this offer: malware is designed to steal users’ money and that’s all. Keep in mind that Windows Restore is a fake defragmenter and runs only fake scanners. They are expected to brainwash you into believing your system is at risk. Please, remove Windows Restore and never purchase its licensed copy. This is nothing but a big trap, so please do not fall into it. While trying to uninstall Windows Restore, you should firstly reboot your PC into safe mode with networking. Additionally, launch task manager and kill its executables, in most cases having random names. Finally, run updated spyhunter and make sure that all Windows Restore files have been eliminated.
