Windows Sleek Performance is another rogueware that originates from the FakeVimes family of rogue anti-spyware programs. It is a fake security program that does nothing to fix virus issues or restore normal PC functions. A clone of Windows Pro Web Helper, Windows Recovery Series, Windows Safety Module and many others, Windows Sleek Performance, attempts to appear as a sleek and sophisticated scanning application, to convince you of potential threats in your computer and buy software that will fix the alleged issues. In reality, however, Windows Sleek performance is a rogue security program that does not have the functionality to report genuine PC issues. It is no more than a scam designed and developed to have you reveal financial information and make a purchase.

How Do You Make Your PC Vulnerable to Windows Sleek Performance?

Windows Sleek Performance operates mainly through unreliable scans that do nothing in terms of detecting real threats and infections. But, how does this fake anti-spyware application press its way into your PC, without your knowledge? PC security researchers have the answer, and they say the process is quite simple, given that most types of rogueware do not bother to ask permission before downloading its application into any computer. It may be spread through websites hacked by Trojans, which seek to find vulnerable programs in any PC so as to install Windows Sleek Performance stealthily. Furthermore, it may also employ questionable websites that appear to scan your PC using fraudulent anti-spyware scanners. These websites will then proceed to ask you to download Windows Sleek Performance to deal with the reported infections.

Unfortunately, there is nothing reliable or competent about Windows Sleek Performance, and the best way to deal with it is to either disregard it or remove it automatically once it has infected your PC.

Dealing with Windows Sleek Performance

After Windows Sleek Performance installs itself, it will quickly run a scan every time you launch Windows. It will display 'potential threats' found in your PC, further specified according to their names and level of alerts. The scan result will also display recommendations on either fixing the issues or removing the infections altogether. While the scans may appear to convince at first glance, Windows Sleek Performance is a hoax. It runs the scans for one thing only – to make you pay for a licensed version that will not accomplish anything or give you any practical return for your money. If truth be told, these supposed infections and threats are the actual doings of Windows Sleek Performance, meant to deceive you and possibly millions of other PC users across continents.

During occasions that you come across any website inviting you for a free Windows Sleek Performance scan and download, do not click on the scan or download button. Don't give in to the persuasions of this rogue security program once it has already been downloaded. It will not delete the infections or give your PC the optimization it needs.
