Windows Efficiency Accelerator is a fake security program from the FakeVimes family. The rogue application reports grossly exaggerated system security threats and malware infections on your computer and displays fake security alerts to scare you into thinking your computer is infected with all sorts of malcious software, from trojans to dialers. Once installed, it will imitate a fake system scan and then will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats supposedly found on your computer during the fake system scan. Do not purchase Windows Efficiency Accelerator. This is nothing more but a scam and won't in any way protect your computer from malware. It will not remove any infections simply because it is an infection itself.
