Windows Vista Restore is a rogue computer error repair and optimization tool that reports fake Windows registry errors, hard drive and memory problems. It will pretend to scan your hard drives and memory for problems. Then it will list numerous problems and will prompt you to buy a license of Windows Vista Restore in order to fix the errors. In reality, though, these errors and problems do not even exist. Windows Vista Restore uses a typical scheme on how to scare users into thinking that their computers are infected with malware or has some sort of errors/problems. Do not fall victim to this rogue program and do not purchase it. If you find that your computer is infected then please use the removal instructions outlined below.

Windows Vista Restore can be removed from the computer either manually or with an automatic removal tool given below. One way or another, you will have to end the main processes of this rogue program first. Otherwise, you won't be able to delete the files or use our removal tool. You need to open task manager or Process Explorer and end its processes. If you can do this in normal mode then reboot your computer in safe mode with networking and try again. Without a doubt, Windows Vista Restore is a scam and should be removed from the computer as soon as possible. Detailed removal instructions are outlined below. Also note that if you have already purchased this bogus program then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. We also strongly recommend you to use an automatic removal tool to remove Windows Vista Restore and related malware from the computer.
