Windows Telemetry Center is a rogue security application that displays fake security alerts and reports non-existing system security threats on your computer to make you think you are infected with malware. Once installed, it will list a variety of infections and ask you to purchase the program in order to remove computer threats which do not even exist most of the time. Do not pay for it! Instead, remove Windows Telemetry Center from your computer as soon as possible using our recommended anti-spyware software.
Usually, Windows Telemetry Center is promoted through the use of Trojans, specifically Trojan.FakeAValert and trojan downloaders. This Trojan downloads and installs the rogue anti-spyware program without your permission. The misleading application can be also advertised through the use of fake online anti-malware scanners and browser hijackers. Spam and IS worms can spread this rogue program as well. If you got an email with attacted will, you should first scan it with your anti-virus program to see if it's safe to download and execute. Very often, rogue programs are distributed through spam.
While running, Windows Telemetry Center will be automatically configured to scan your computer each time you log on into Windows. The bogus program will state that your computer is badly infected and that you should purchase a full version of the program to remove these infections (they actually do not even exist). Of course, we strongly recommend you not to do so because the scan results are false. Furthermore, Windows Telemetry Center will constantly display fake security alerts and notifications about security problems and hacker attacks. Obviously that's not true.
