Windows Safety Wizard is a rogue program tricks users into purchasing its full version. It uses fake scan result to scare users into thinking that their computers are infected with spyware, adware, rootkits and other malware that may cause serious damage to the system. It is usually promoted through the use of Trojan downloaders, fake online virus scanners that display pop ups stating that your computer is infected and that you should download and run Windows Safety Wizard in order to clean your computer. This rogue program is also promoted via infected websites and spam emails.

You shouldn't trust Windows Safety Wizard and pay for it since it's a scam. When running, this scamware will pretend to scan your computer and then list a variety of infections that supposedly cannot be removed until you purchase the program, but the results are faked. They are only being shown to scare you into thinking you are infected with all sorts of malware where as the only real infection is the rogue program itself. As a typical rogue security program, Windows Safety Wizard will display many fake security alerts and pop-ups from Windows Taskbar. It can even block legitimate programs or stop explorer session with a warning. Those alerts and Windows Safety Wizard Warnings will claim that your computer is infected with spyware, adware and other types of malware. Please ignore those fake alerts.
