Default Scam Security Software

Just like the forever rogueware SpyH*nter a new generation of fake tools has surfaced to join this group. Also like SpyH*nter they use multiple websites to trap the unwary. Two of the latest are “System Care Pro” and “Virus Vanish” the former claiming to clean and repair broken Windows systems.

Don’t get caught out by this garbage or the multitude of others like it. Their usual method of promotion is to include spam links within seemingly genuine forum posts, hence the need here to party obscure the name of one of them.

First off if your Windows system is broken there never has been or never will be any sort of registry cleaner cum optimizing tool capable of fixing it.

And if you must use a third party antivirus please choose from the choice of legitimate software that is regularly reviewed by recognized agents such as AV-Comparatives or AV-Test.
