Cyber criminals use stealth malware techniques to disguise their presence on a PC and give the false impression of wanting to help Internet users by providing so-called security programs. Crooked programmers working for greedy cyber criminals have incorporated polymorphic code, allowing rogue security programs to self-modify its name to defeat anti-virus programs and avoid detection. Depending on varying factors such as O/S, browser type or installed antivirus, the rodent will morph into a different skin, i.e. interface. This technique is also known as using 'smart code.'

Cyber criminals are constantly researching and thinking of ways to outwit cyber defense teams, i.e. software and antimalware makers, to bypass their security measures and attack you, the PC user, to steal your money and corrupt your PC. Do not let them win! Do not be the next victim of MS Removal Tool or any of its rogue security clones.

So How Do You Protect Yourself Against MS Removal Tool And Clones?

Don't forget that while MS Removal Tool may have a different name and interface, it is the same culprit that keeps attacking your PC in an attempt to trick you into buying its fake antimalware program. Once you identify the behavior, you should be able to detect the intrusion early on and shut down these rogue security programs that much quicker.

The Behavior of MS Removal Tool:


  1. After gaining deceptive entry, i.e. an infected download of shareware, freeware or codec for viewing a movie or video, or after clicking on a dubious link or visiting a malicious website, Trojan horse, a component of the security rogue program model, will immediately go to work. Trojan horse is multi-talented and will disarm your antimalware, disable your admin controls (Desktop and Taskbar), and will hijack your browser, so that you cannot download or visit a real anti-malware solution.

  2. Trojan horse will install MS Removal Tool, which runs upon reboot. Trojan horse also will alter your registry files to hide itself and ensure that MS Removal Tool is allowed to run every time you reboot -- until you give in and download the full version.

  3. MS Removal Tool's skin or interface pops-up on your screen and blocks you from using other applications while it screams bloody murder in the form of alerts and annoying pop-ups.

  4. MS Removal Tool runs an unauthorized scan and shows you proof that your PC has been infected by UnknownWin32/Trojan, a vapor virus, and gives you the below alert:

    Microsoft Security Essentials Alert!
    Potential Threat Details!
    Microsoft Security Essentials detected potential threats that might compromise your private or damage your computer. Your access to these
    items may be suspended until you take an action. Click 'show details' to learn more.

  5. MS Removal Tool asks you to get involved and run a scan to find 'all' intruders. The fake scan returns a list of violations, i.e. infected files and named vapor viruses.

  6. MS Removal Tool offers to remove or clean your system if you buy and download its 'full-version.'

The Antidote for MS Removal Tool:

Do not be deceived! MS Removal Tool is a fake and cannot protect your system, since it was not built to help you. MS Removal Tool and its league of security rogue programs were designed to hurt you.

Stop the madness and remove MS Removal Tool and elements of its scam operatives off your system! If you do nothing, you will remain under attack and open your PC to theft. Trojan horse intends to open the back door of your PC and give hackers remote access for malicious intent. Protect your valuable data and assets and do not let scammers make you their next victim.
