Do you know what Windows Anticrashes Utility is?
The abundance of rogues which come out under the disguise of the Fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam leads to the assumption that it is a lucrative shady for cyber criminals. Windows Accidents Prevention is the newest malicious software application in the long line of rogues. Previous clones include Windows Necessary Firewall, Windows Troubles Solver, Windows Precautions Center and many more.
Just like the rogues which came before it, Windows Accidents Prevention looks exactly the same and performs the same functions which are designed in order to make the user believe that his computer has been attacked by serious threats and he needs to make use of Windows Accidents Prevention to delete the threats. In fact, the truth is that the program is a computer threat itself, and it targets not only the computer system, but the user’s personal savings as well.
Windows Accidents Prevention masquerades as a real antivirus program, because it needs to gain the user’s respect and trust. It wastes no time in sending such security notifications to the user:
System Security Warning
Attempt to modify register key entries is detected. Register entries analysis is recommended.
The user does not need to know that the messages are in fact generated by the rogue itself. In a sense it creates the problem and then at the same time offers a solution for it. This is the method used by rogues, when they want to lure the money out of innocent users. Windows Accidents Prevention will also perform a fake system scan, saying that in order to fix the errors present, one must purchase the full version of the program. But by doing that the user will certainly expose his credit card and banking information to third parties and this information will be definitely used to perform illegal operations in the future.
One must definitely avoid this by terminating Windows Accidents Prevention for good. In order to remove this rogue manually, the user must find and delete all the system files which are associated with the threat. If this task is too complicated, then the user is advised to use an automatic malware detector, which will remove Windows Accidents Prevention from the computer without any difficulties.
In non-techie terms:
Windows Accidents Prevention is a rogue antispyware application which pretends to be a legitimate security program. It does so in order to steal money from unsuspecting users, at the same time damaging the computer’s system. That is why the user must erase Windows Accidents Prevention once he is sure of the infection, and before the rogue managed to cause any more harm.
