How to Uninstall Windows Vista Restore Virus

The Windows Vista Restore virus is a fake security software which utilizes the Windows Vista name in order to deceive Windows Vista users. With the ability to change its name depending on your Operating system, it is programmed to interfere with Microsoft-run computers such as Windows XP and Windows 7. This virus can get into your system without causing any alerts, it controls various processes in your computer slowly but surely. The virus is presented to users as a web optimizer, it has various features which can help you speed up your computer as well as resolve any issues that it may find. Though you may think at first glance, that this is a useful application for Windows Vista computers, the Windows Vista Restore program is actually a scam. It will run fake scanners, produce fake threat reports and will annoy you with message alerts asking you to buy the full version of their product so you can get rid of the infections. Unless you remove the Windows Vista Restore rogue utility, it will later on destroy your computer and make it a lot more vulnerable to malwares.

Though you may want it to scan your computer, you will undoubtedly fall victim to it. Once it begins to run fake scanners, it will give you alarming results just to convince you to buy their product. The Windows Vista Restore scam utility is very dangerous and it can really cause a lot of problems, the best way to deal with it is not by buying the full version, but by deleting the files that it has created in your system.
