Windows Daily Adviser is a fake anti-spyware program associated with the same type of malware developed by FakeVimes. While it presents itself as anti-virus software, it is actually a fraudulent application that does not carry out a legitimate computer scan. Windows Daily Adviser will either generate fake warnings about virus infiltrations or forcefully compromise a PC system to convince the user that a licensed version of the rogue anti-virus tool is the only possible solution.

Nothing Advisable about Windows Daily Adviser

There is nothing advisable about Windows Daily Adviser, and this is clear with the way that it operates and delivers its tactics. Presumably a clone of Windows High-End Protection, Windows Safety Module and other rogue security programs that make use of the reputable Windows label, Windows Daily Adviser is a fake application that installs itself into any PC through one of two ways. The infection can take place once a user visits a hacked website, or after the user clicks on a fake anti-malware scanner online. After its installation, Windows Daily Adviser will not cease to provide unsolicited advice about virus warnings and Registry errors, as a way to mislead the user into obtaining the only workable solution – pay for the full version of Windows Daily Adviser.

How Windows Daily Adviser Compromises your PC

Simply put, Windows Daily Adviser is an attempt to compromise the stability of a computer system and make the PC user pay up for a fake anti-spyware program. It is a clear design aimed at manipulating PC users and robbing them of their money. Malware analysts have uncovered the many strategies that Windows Daily Adviser use in order to take over an infected computer. One of these tactics include controlling the Windows Task Manager and Registry Editor so that when a PC user attempts to launch Windows Task Manager, the Advanced Security Center screen of Windows Daily Adviser will pop up in its place. The rogue anti-spyware program will run a scan and reveal that the computer is at risk of severe virus infections and system compromises.

More than these fake scans, moreover, Windows Daily Adviser is also known to display unjustifiable security alerts. These alerts usually range from common virus attacks to fake information of security risks. The unwary PC user may easily fall for these baseless warnings, and will be forced to obtain a paid version of Windows Daily Adviser.
Anyone who has already detected a Windows Daily Adviser should take the necessary steps in removing it. Simply ignoring the scans and alerts will disallow the crooks from getting to your money, but this will not eliminate the rogueware from your PC. Deleting Windows Daily Adviser should be done without delay, through the help of legitimate security software.

Windows Daily Adviser is clearly a scam, and the best way to deal with it is to obliterate it automatically. Do not heed the advice of Windows Daily Adviser. This rogue anti-virus application may even spread further and update itself if left in a computer system for far too long. Go for legitimate security software – nothing less – if you want to take care of Windows Daily Adviser as early as now.
