Windows Police PRO. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Lucia Danes - -   Also known as WindowsPolicePRO, Windows Police | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Windows Police PRO is a misleading security application that reports false system security threats and displays fake security alerts to make you think your computer is infected with spyware, adware, Trojans or other malware. Then the rogue program asks to purchase a full version of the program to remove system security threats which do not even exist. Do not purchase this program and uninstall Windows Police PRO from your computer as soon as possible.

Windows Police PRO is a clone of Windows Antivirus Pro. Most of the time, Windows Police is promoted through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners, browser hijackers and with the help of other malicious software. Trojans display fake security alerts from Windows Security Center or Task bar and suggest you to install Windows Police PRO to remove assumed system infections and to ensure full PC protection. Ignore such fake security alerts no matter what they tell you. Otherwise, you will infect your computer even more.

Once installed, Windows Police PRO will perform fake system scan and report a variety of infections or security threats. Remember, scan results are false, you may easily ignore them. The only thing you should worry about is WindowsPolicePRO itself. Furthermore, this parasite will constantly display bogus system security alerts stating that your computer is under attack or that you do not have antivirus software. You will see fake security alerts with the following text:

“Security Warning
Your computer continues to be infected with harmful viruses. In order to prevent permanent loss of your information and credit card data theft please activate your antivirus software. Click here to enable protection.”

svchost.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience”

“Windows Police Pro Alert
Infiltration Alert
Your computer is being attacked by an Internet Virus. It could be password-stealing attack, a trojan-dropper or similar.”

However, that's not all. Windows Police PRO will also hijack your web browser and dramatically slow down your computer. It may block some Microsoft Windows tools and programs to protect itself from being deleted.

As you can see, Windows Police PRO is a scam and nothing more. If you have unadvisedly purchased this program please contact your bank immediately. Then use the removal guide below to remove this infection from the system manually for free. You should also scan your PC with reliable anti-spyware application to make sure that there are no other malware installed on your computer.

    If you press F8 at start up and choose Safe Mode . You will need to Edit windows registry.

    in run command enter regedit

    In window search under HKEY_LOCAL-MACHINE UNDER SOFTWARE LOOK FOR winlogon key

    the shell file need to read Explorer.exe it will at present contain various commands whcih will not allow you to boot into normal windows start page.

    Use File & edit and make sure it reads :- Exploer.exe

    Restar machine and windows will boot as normal.

    use a Anti Virus software and complete a FULL Scan

    make sure when you end the tasks listed up there you also end svchast.exe. make sure it is exactly svchast.exe because svchost.exe is a legit windows program….good luck

    What imeadiatly threw me off is that in one of their little “notices”
    They did not spell “trying” correctly.
    I am going to try removing it now.

    Even in safe mode I cannot open regedit, command window etc. so I cannot get to the root of the problem. I think I'll take the computer to a shop to have a pro try to fix it. This is the nastiest thing I've ever seen.

    This is making me so angry. Happy I'm not the only one with it, but it keeps on popping up. I can't get into my registry window. The only one that worked was the Windows Task Manager. Geh, could someone please help?

    I am posting from the library; my home computer is infected with
    Windows Police Pro. However I can't remove it in the manner you suggest as it won't let me use my computer.
    Any suggestions?

    I got this parasite, too. The only way I could get anything done was do a file search for “police” (you need to search all files on your HD), then quickly close all Windows police pro files via the task manager & delete all the files found in the search. Hope that helps.

    I have found that by going to run, starting services.msc, after having ended the schast.exe process in the tsk mngr, and disabling the AntiPol service, allows you to open all of your normal files, programs and other things used to delete windows police pro. good luck

    My computer was infected with Windows Police Pro. I went into Safe Mode and ran the Windows One Live Care Scan (from MSN security site) which removed the Windows Police Pro virus from my computer. Hope this helps.

    We purchased PC TOOLs virus removal program for $30 and this got rid of it. Had to run in full scan mode however. Intelli-scan did not pick it up.

    I am a computer tech, windows police pro is the WORST virus I have ever seen. I disables your .exe files there is no way to fix it unless you completely overhaul the operating system… upgrade the os to windows 7 and it should work fine. that is the only thing you can do.
