How to Remove Windows Scan Virus

The Windows Scan virus is a fraud application whose main objective is just to steal your money, disguised as a useful application, it will pretend to improve your computer system. As soon as the Windows Scan malware comes in contact with your computer’s system, it will then utilize Trojans that can aid the virus in breaking through your security system. Alert messages will then be seen and the virus will tell you that it has found problems within your computer’s disk drive, the Windows Scan spyware will ask you to download and install their software afterwards.

The Windows Scan scam tool will basically try to steal your money from you, as soon as it is installed, it will then take over your computer and automatically activate upon your next restart. You will be alarmed as soon as the scans will report to you that there are a lot of  errors in your computer, you will also find out later on that you will not be able to run some of your applications and even delete files from your computer.
