Windows Safety Module is a bogus anti-spyware tool that is neither a licensed product of Microsoft nor a legitimate type of software designed to detect PC virus infections. It has been created mainly to defraud PC users into believing that their systems are compromised by viruses, worms and Trojans, and will require an anti-spyware program. Designed in the tradition of most rogue anti-virus programs, Windows Safety Module is nothing more than a trick aimed at susceptible PC users and their money.

Windows Safety Module is a Malicious Application


The fact that Windows Safety Module does not have the capacity of detecting malware attacks makes this program no more than a malicious program. Security researchers have uncovered that this fraudulent program functions like the rest of the rogue anti-virus programs multiplying all over the web today. Windows Safety Module gains an entryway into any PC without warning and launches itself instantaneously with Windows as the system is rebooted. Once Windows Safety Module is already installed, Windows Safety Module will begin to generate fake scans and notify the user that the PC is weighed down by viruses and other forms of threats. It does this for one main reason, and this is to convince the PC user that the fake virus infection can be eliminated by paying for a full version of Windows Safety Module.

What is alarming about Windows Safety Module is that Windows Safety Module doesn't even have the tools or features needed to carry out a decent anti-virus scan. Wiki-security.com malware analysts have discovered that the scans last no more than 5 seconds, with some scans allegedly completed in as short as 4 seconds. It is impossible for any legitimate security program to accomplish a complete scan in such a nominal period of time, which means that Windows Safety Module is no better than the rest of the rogue anti-spyware devices circulating the Internet and compromising millions of computers across the web.

What PC Users Can Do


It is fairly difficult for unsuspecting computer users to detect a Windows Safety Module infiltration early on, since this fake anti-virus program enters any PC system without advice. Furthermore, Windows Safety Module is not affiliated with Windows, Microsoft or any other legitimate software provider. If Windows Safety Module has already found its way into your computer system, you will need to remove Windows Safety Module as soon as possible. Not only does Windows Safety Module perform fake scans, Windows Safety Module may also result in serious system slowdowns. It is designed, most of all, to swindle money off you.

The so-called full version of Windows Safety Module, which you will need to purchase so that all PC imaginary threats may be eliminated, can do no better than its trial version. Worse, this rogue security program does not have the ability to detect or delete actual threats in your PC.

Windows Safety Module places the functionality of your PC, as well as your online banking details, at risk. You can delete this perfidious anti-spyware program through the use of legitimate software, before Windows Safety Module modifies your system further and results in worse PC problems. Just like all of the rogue security programs out there, there is nothing safe about Windows Safety Module.

To check your computer for Windows Safety Module, download SpyHunter Spyware Detection Tool.
