The fake scanner then prompts the user to download and run their malware removal tool to remove infections that were found on your machine. Windows Sleek Performance can also come bundled with other malware or it can enter your computer through software updates, for example, Java and Adobe. If you find that your computer is infected with this virus, please follow the removal instructions below and remove Windows Sleep Performance from the system as soon as possible.
