What is Win 8 Security System?

Win 8 Security System is another rogue anti-spyware that should be removed from the system as soon as you detect it. No matter how trustworthy it looks, keep in mind that this program is created by hackers in order to deceive people into thinking that their computers are dangerously infected and that they have to purchase its licensed version. Since it is a fake security program, you should never believe its alerts that are displayed immediately after installation of this virus. They typically inform people that their computers are infected with trojans, adware, rogues and other viruses, and that they have to remove them without wasting their time. In fact, the misleading activity of this program ends with the offer to buy a licensed version of Win 8 Security System and activate it for the removal of previously mentioned infections. However, none of the displayed alerts are true and the licensed version of this bogus program is useless. If you decide to purchase this program, the only thing that you will get is the money loss. Remember, Win 8 Security System is not able to remove any type of virus because it does not have such function. Moreover, if you purchase the licensed its version, you won't remove anything. It will only stop showing you its alerts.
