Windows Accelerator Pro is a fake security application that attempts to look like the legitimate Windows Advanced Security Center pop-up alert. In doing this many PC users take Windows Accelerator Pro for its face value and end up purchasing the Windows Accelerator Pro program in hopes that it would remove all so-called detected threats it finds on their PC.
The threats that Windows Accelerator Pro returns in system scans are bogus results and are not present on your system. Windows Accelerator Pro is just like recently identified rogue antispyware programs, such as Windows Efficiency Console and Windows Premium Shield. These programs all closely resemble each other and are believed to have been created by the same group of money-hungry hackers.
It behooves PC users to take immediate action to remove the Windows Accelerator Pro program once it is identified through its annoying pop-up alerts and system scan notifications. Allowing Windows Accelerator Pro to run on a system may lead to other issues and eventually convince gullible PC users to spend their hard earned money on something that will never resolve PC security issues.
The Windows Accelerator Pro removal process has been successfully completed through the use of updated antispyware scan tools. Through the use of an antispyware program you may automatically remove Windows Accelerator Pro and any other files related to the malware lurking on your system.
In an effort to alleviate the problems that come with Windows Accelerator Pro, you should take action now to remove Windows Accelerator Pro. The process of removing Windows Accelerator Pro can be tricky, which is why you may use a malware solution to easily remove it from your system. New antimalware software is one key to removing Windows Accelerator Pro in addition to manual removal, which may be performed by more experienced PC users.
