Windows Interactive Safety is a modified version of FakeVimes group of malwares that are used to deceive PC users into spending their money on its fake licensed version. In order to convince its victims that they should pay the money, Windows Interactive Safety reports multiple infections found on the system and then asks to make a payment in order to get them removed. However, that's just another trick used by scammers to fool PC users and rip them off. In reality, non of these threats are existent and most of these files that are reported by Windows Interactive Safety are important system files needed for normal PC's functionality. As you can see, Windows Interactive Safety works on inventing malicious items and tries to make its victim frightened. If you have also received alert from Windows Interactive Safety, don't waste your time and run a full system scan with reputable anti-spyware program. We recommend Reimage in this case.


Windows Interactive Safety is mostly distributed with a help of trojans that can easily come through security vulnerabilities found. As soon as it gets inside the system, it is set to start together with every system reboot and display perfectly legitimate-looking alerts and scanners. Classically, this program claims that your computer is dangerously infected with various kinds of viruses, like trojans, malware, ransomware, browser hijackers and other threats.
