Network Control. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as NetworkControl | Type: Malware

Network Control is a fake application that promotes rogue security products. It’s a Trojan which pretends to be a legitimate program. NetworkControl displays fake warnings and notifications about critical system modifications made by remote administrator named Adam1. The rogue program enters the system though the use of misleading online anti-malware scanners and other rogue websites. The ransomware may also enter your computer through software vulnerabilities or after all it can be manually installed without knowing what this program really does. One is known for sure, Network Control is a scam. Don’t trust it. While running, it will prompt you to buy rogue security software: Advanced Net Firewall, Shield EC, Personal Network Protect, IP Blockator, and Network Defender. All these programs are fake. Don’t purchase any of these programs. Instead, please remove Network Control malware from your computer as soon as possible. The follow the removal instructions below.

The biggest problem with NetworkControl is that it blocks legitimate programs, nearly all of them. Of course, it blocks antivirus software in the first place. The text of the alert you will see when a program is terminated is:

System Notification
Running applications blocked by the administrator Adam1.

And some more fake alerts:

System Restore
Critical System Notification
Remote administrator Adam1 has changed some system files of Windows OS.
Checking will take several minutes.
Please do not turn off the computer – it can lead to system crash.

The main process of Network Control is nc.exe. It’s located in C:NetworkControl directory. You can try to delete this file manually or use Process Explorer to “kill” the process. If you choose to use an automatic removal tool from this website then don’t forget to rename spyware-doctor.exe to iexplore.exe. Otherwise, the rogue program will block it. It goes without saying that you should uninstall Network Control from your computer upon detection. We strongly recommend you to use an automatic removal tool to remove this virus and any additional malware from your computer.
