Network Control, sometimes called Network Control Solution Center, is a Trojan that pretends to be a legitimate security application. It states that remote administrator named Adam1 has changed some system files of Windows OS. This ransomaware is promoted mostly through the use of fake online scanners and other bogus websites which state that your computer is infected with spyware, adware, Trojans and other malware. It may also come bundled with other viruses or enter your computer through software vulnerabilities. Once installed, Network Control will state that your computer is not protected and that there is no firewall software on your PC. Then it will display Solution Center screen with a list of fake antivirus programs: Advanced Net Firewall, Shield EC, Personal Network Protect, IP Blockator, and Network Defender. Please don’t buy any of those programs. They are all bogus and won’t protect your computer in any way. Instead, please use the removal instructions below to remove Network Control and any related malware form your computer either manually or with an automatic removal tool.
The main process of NetworkControl is NC.exe located in C:\NetworkControl folder. This process launch automatically when Windows starts. Another very annoying thing about this virus is that it actually terminates nearly all legitimate programs and displays fake warning with the following text:
Running applications blocked by the administrator Adam1.
The text of some of these alerts are:
Unable to find installed software
System was unable to find installed firewall software.
Critical System Notification
Remote administrator Adam1 has changed some system files of Windows OS.
Checking will take several minutes.
Please do not turn off the computer – it can lead to system crash.
As you can see, Network Control is very annoying and even dangerous application. The main goal of this bogus program is to trick you into purchasing one of the fake antivirus products. If you have already purchased it then please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Then, please follow our removal recommendations carefully and remove Network Control from your computer. We strongly recommend you to use an automatic removal in order to completely remove the rogue program and any additional malware.
