Windows Expert Console Removal Guide
Windows Expert Console is a scareware program from
family of computer infections. This program is considered scareware
because it prevents you from accessing your Windows desktop, blocks
legitimate applications from running, and displays fake security alerts
on your computer. In some situations this program will run before you
are shown your desktop, which makes your computer unusable until the
infection is removed. Windows Expert Console is distributed through web
sites that display a fake online virus scanner that states your computer
is infected and then prompts you to download the installation file.
This infection is also promoted by hacked web sites that contain exploit
code that tries to install the infection on your computer without your
permission or knowledge.
Once Windows Expert Console is installed it will be configured to
automatically start when you login to Windows. Once started, it will
pretend to scan your computer and then states that there are numerous
infections present. If you attempt to remove any of these supposed
infections, the program will state that you first need to purchase a
license before being allowed to do so. As all of the scan results are
false, please ignore any prompts to purchase the program.
