Anyone who suddenly discovers WinPerformance on their computer should immediately stop what they are doing, restart their computer in safe mode, and run a legitimate anti-spyware program on your computer. If you don’t, you are leaving your computer open to hijacking by viruses, malware, spyware, adware, and hacking. If you don’t believe us, download the fully licensed program and see for yourself what happens to your computer.
Rogue anti-spyware programs like WinPerformance can cause your computer system to become unstable. These types of programs sneak in through security issues on your computer or riding on the back of a Trojan virus. Check your computer system for Zlob or Vundo. These two seem to be the worst culprits currently running around the Internet. Once WinPerformance is on your computer system, it will load the trial version without your authorization and begin to drive you nuts with pop-up messages that state that your computer is in danger or is infected with viruses and malicious software.
The last thing you want to do is accept its offer to scan your computer and identify the problems. If you do, you will get a false report of all the files that are supposedly ‘infected’, ‘corrupted’, or ‘critically’ dangerous to your computer system. The files WinPerformance uses in its false list are either false themselves or actually files that are used in Windows to run system processes. Plus WinPerformance will claim that it is the only program that will get rid of these issues for you.
Unfortunately uninformed computer users will fall prey to WinPerformance’s promises that it can clear the infected files from your computer. They will order and download the licensed version and then find themselves with a program that performs less than optimally with no recourse to get their money back. Incidentally, WinPerformance is a bit unique in the rogue anti-spyware business in that there is no website to go to in order to download the program and the IP address from which the program downloads every time changes.
By downloading the fully licensed version of WinPerformance, users have opened the backdoor of their computer to viruses, hackers, other spyware and malware programs, and third parties who will use your information for nefarious purposes. You will notice that your legitimate anti-spyware and anti-virus programs do not run properly if they run at all, and that your internet browser settings have been changed without your authorization and you cannot get them changed back. There will be unauthorized icons on your desktop, processes running in the background that take up memory and resources, and your Spam mail and pop-ups will become worse, even if you are running a pop-blocker. Unless Win Performance is removed, your computer system will eventually shut down.
The Add/Remove tool in Windows does not work with rogue anti-spyware programs such as WinPerformance. The only recourse you have short of taking your computer back to factory settings is to put it in safe mode, run your anti-virus program and eliminates the Trojan WinPerformance came in with, and then download a new and legitimate anti-spyware program like ZookaWare PC Cleaner to your computer. Run the program and it will remove the rogue program for you, saving you the hassle of trying to remove each and every file on your own and creating an even bigger computer mess that a professional will have to solve.
