removal by - -   Also known as Windows Security Renewal | Type: Malware

Windows Security Renewal means nothing else but continuous effort of cyber criminals to swindle the money from PC users. Just like earlier versions of FakeVimes family rogues, Windows Security Renewal uses the same GUI and misleading alerts that all report about non-existent cyber threats. Be sure that you must only ignore this program and never remove its 'infections' reported because that's your legitimate system files that are important for normal computer's functionality. Just like all its forerunners and other rogues, Windows Security Renewal must be removed from the system without any delay. For that you should simply run a full system scan with reputable anti-spyware.

How can I get infected with WINDOWS Security Renewal

Being a clone of its forerunners, Windows Security Renewal is also distributed with a help of trojans and other cyber threats. Mostly, these trojans come together with malicious spam emails, infected downloads or fake updates. As soon as it penetrates into computer, Windows Security Renewal starts trying to fool its victims that they have numerous viruses on their computer. Be sure that it will deliberately generate fake pop-up ads and scanners trying to mislead victims about malware infiltration and other security issues. These Windows Security Renewal fake notifications appear every time user reboot his PC and report something like that:

Registry entry analysis is recommended.

Potential malware detected
It is recommended to activate the protection and perform a
thorough system scan to remove the malware.

Windows XP USER API Clien: DLL
User32.dll is suspended to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

Similarly to its earlier versions, Windows Security Renewal seeks to persuade users that they got serious security problems on their computers that can be solved only by using the commercial its version. However, instead of falling for that you should simply remove Windows Security Renewal which won't stop until it's not eliminated from the system.
