Do you know what Windows Safety Manager is?
Even though it may seem that Windows Safety Manager is a completely new, fake antispyware application, in reality, it is just a cleverly distributed cyber criminals’ tool, which acts and even looks exactly like its previous clones. Windows Safety Manager mimics its predecessors Windows Crucial Scanner, Windows Cleaning Tools and Windows Process Accelerator (Rogue.VirusDoctor family), and is a perfect instrument for online schemers, who do not need to put nearly any effort to profit from clueless PC users. Nonetheless, be sure that Windows Safety Manager is not your regular harmless application, because if you think so, you will keep Windows Safety Manager unremoved and the malicious application will be used to manipulate you and your system!
Once Windows Safety Manager invades Windows OS via various security cracks, its RUN key is immediately added to the system’s start-up, so that malignant processes could start running immediately after you turn on your PC. After Windows Safety Manager is embedded into the system, it cleverly blocks Internet connection, running of most executables, and restricts access to such Windows Tools as Registry Editor and Task Manager. Such action, not only confuses PC users, who start believing the fake infection, but also makes it nearly impossible to detect or remove Windows Safety Manager’s components. Together with these maddening symptoms, Windows Safety Manager also presents a fake computer scanner, which falsely informs of many fake infections, which are backed up by the various fake security notifications. See a few examples:
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk.
It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.

Description: This type of behaviour covers malicious programs that delete, block, modify, or copy data, disrupt computer, but which cannot be classified under any of the behaviours identified above
Luckily, you can remove these Windows Safety Manager symptoms, by applying a license key, which will help you with the overall infection’s removal. Note, that activating this key, will not delete Windows Safety Manager from your system!
In non-techie terms:
Windows Safety Manager is a perfectly crafted cyber criminals’ tool, with which they can manipulate your personal data, if you choose to disclose it upon purchasing, distort your system’s functionality, or even remove your Windows privileges. Do not let Windows Safety Manager stop you from running your system and remove it immediately. It is highly recommended to use legitimate AV tools to delete Windows Safety Manager, because manual infection’s removal could only cause more damage, if performed by inexperienced Windows users.
