Windows Safety Master - How to remove?


Windows Safety Master is a rogue antivirus program that was designed by cyber criminals in order to earn some money easily from random computer users. The program is installed to PCs with a help of Trojan viruses which guarantee the intrusion to be completely secret. If you want to protect your system from such applications you must have a reputable antivirus and antimalware programs and always update them. In case your computer has already been infected with Windows Safety Master, you will have to get rid of it as it’s a useless program that only imitates features of antimalware.

The fake antivirus belongs to FakeVimes family of rogue programs that is well-known for earlier releases, like Windows Ultimate Booster, Windows Efficiency Kit, Windows Cleaning Toolkit and several other fake programs. As soon as Windows Safety Master infiltrates into your system, it makes some changes in your Registry which enable this rogue to be started every time you boot your computer. The program pretends to perform system scan and claims to detect dozens of infections that are harming your PC.

Beware that Windows Safety Master may not detect any genuine infections and it has no abilities to remove them, so if you are asked to purchase its full version, never agree to do that. The program is only trying to rip you off. Additionally, Windows Safety Master displays fake security notifications when you try to run your legitimate programs, warning that your PC is infected. This is just one more technique to make you believe that your machine is at risk and make you purchase a useless tool:

Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet
Internet Explorer
C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplorer.exe

C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplorer.exe
is suspected to have infected your PC.
This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

If you have noticed any of these signs on your system, you should know that your computer contains a malware. Unfortunately Windows Safety Master will not help you to get rid of any infections as it is the real cause of all your problems. If you want to solve these issues, we highly recommend removing Windows Safety Master. Use a reputable antispyware program, for example, Reimage, SpyHunter or other security tool that you trust. You should be able to run it from other administrator account on your PC because it affects a single account only.
