Windows Tools Patch is one more rogue antivirus program from Rogue.Vimes family. The program warns that your system is badly infected by displaying tons of security notifications that do not correspond to reality. However, many computer users can take this trick for granted and lose their money this way.
Windows Tools Patch spreads on the systems using hacked websites. These websites are usually able to install rogue program without users' knowledge. Besides, these websites can contain fake scanners which only imitate looking for infections on your machine but in fact they are useless. In any case, Windows Tools Patch attempts to prove that your system is infected.
One more thing that must be mentioned is that once Windows Tools Patch gets inside the system it causes a flood of security warning in there. Have a look at them:
