Block Watcher. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Alice Woods - -   Also known as BlockWatcher | Type: Rogue Antispyware

BlockWatcher is a misleading application that will do all its best to scare and confuse you into believing that your computer is infected with malware. In order to achieve its goals, Block Watcher will report false system security threats or infections and display fake security warnings/notifications. Then the rogue program will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats which actually do not even exist. Do not bay this program and uninstall BlockWatcher from your PC as soon as possible if it is already infected.

BlockWatcher is from the same family as Shield Safeness, Soft Stronghold, Soft Veteran and many others. All rogue programs from WiniSoft family use the same graphical user interface. The home page of this bogus product is also almost identical to those used by other rogue programs from this family. When running, BlockWatcher will flood your computer with fake security alerts claiming that your computer is seriously infected or under attack by an Internet Virus. To make things even worse, this infection will block anti-virus software and security related websites to protect itself from being deleted.

Most importantly do not purchase this bogus software. If you find that your computer is infected, please use the removal guide below to remove BlockWatcher from your PC manually for free. If you have already purchased it, you should contact your credit card company as soon as possible and dispute the charges. It would be also a good ideal to scan your computer with a reliable anti-spyware application to make sure there are no other malicious files on the system.
