Windows Managing System is a fake antivirus program that was designed by computer hackers in order to steal money from random computer users. The program represents itself as a powerful tool to solve all security issues that your system experiences. It uses a fake scanner to imitate looking for infections and even generates a list of threats that have been supposedly detected on your machine.
Actually, the files that Windows Managing System displays as infections might even be legitimate programs that are essential for a proper Windows operation. So you shouldn't try removing them as you may damage your system irretrievably.

When Windows Managing System is running in the background you will also constantly receive pop up ads and security tray alerts. These messages are a result of your modified Windows Registry. Have a look at few of them:

One more annoying thing is that you are disabled from visiting any Internet site or using any other programs that are on your computer. Basically, your system will depend only on Windows Managing System and you will only see its activity there.

Any messages or notifications by Windows Managing System as well as the scan results of this malicious application must be ignored. Most importantly, you must get rid of Windows Managing System from your system as its dangerous activity will never stop.

The best way to do it is scanning your system with a legitimate anti-spyware program, for example, Reimage. This way you will also check your system for additional infections which has a better access to your computer when Windows Managing System is running.
