Windows Stability Maximizer is a rogue anti-spyware application that reports false system security threats to make you think your computer is infected viruses, spyware and dangerous trojans. It also displays fake security alerts to further scare you into believing that you are infected. Once installed, the rogue anti-spyware application will display non-existing or completely false infections supposedly found on your computer and prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections. Of course, you should do that because it's not genuine software and it won't remove any infections from your PC whatsoever. You should remove Windows Stability Maximizer from your computer as soon as possible. If you won't remove it upon detection, the rogue security applications may later download and install additional malware on your computer.

Windows Stability Maximizer is promoted mainly through the use of fake online anti-spyware scanners and hacked websites. It can be also pushed using Trojans and other malicious programs that exploit software vulnerabilities. Fake online scanner will display numerous infections on your computer and recommend you to use Windows Stability Maximizer to remove found infections and to ensure full PC protection. However, do not install this parasite and leave a misleading website immediately. Fake security alerts reads:

Warning
Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet
C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe
is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

Error
Trojan activity detected. System data security is at risk.
It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.

When running, Windows Stability Maximizer will display many fake system security alerts claiming that your PC is not protected and that your anti-virus software is disabled. The only reason it is disabled is because the rogue program wants to protect itself from being removed. In other words, Windows Stability Maximizer will block antivirus software and security related websites to protect itself from being removed. The rogue program will likely slow down your computer and block task manager, registry editor and other tools. If you find that your PC is infected with this rogue anti-spyware application, please use the removal guide below to remove Windows Stability Maximizer from the system using our recommended malware removal tool.
