Windows Web WatchDog Virus – Removal Instructions
Windows Web WatchDog is fake antivirus software that contaminates your computer and opens up automatically every time you start your system. When it opens, it scans the system and displays fake security alerts, claiming that there are several, sometimes hundreds, of security threats, infections, and viruses on your computer. These alerts say that your computer is greatly at risk and needs to be cleaned up, but the only way to get rid of these infections is to update from the trial version of Windows Web WatchDog to the paid version, which is no longer free. This program looks like many actual antivirus software programs, with a similar interface, so many users are fooled into thinking it is legitimate and that they must purchase the software.
Every alert it display is false, however, only there to trick users into spending money on the “licensed” version. Paying money for this updated version will not clean your computer, as there was no risk of infection to begin with, aside from the unwanted software that is Windows Web WatchDog itself. In addition, the credit card information you provide is sent back to the people who created the scareware in the first place, putting you at risk for credit card theft.
These fake alerts may seem terrifying when you first see them, and that is the purpose: to scare users into forking over their money for a full version of Windows Web WatchDog. Users who register for that version, though, won’t find that their computer is cleaner or more secure. In fact, it will be quite the opposite. Beyond just displaying the false security alerts, Windows Web WatchDog corrupts your computer, making it much more open to other malware or spyware attacks. It slows system performance and network connection, making your computer run very slowly, which is often a sign that there is a virus on the computer.
In this case, of course, the virus is Windows Web WatchDog. You will begin to notice if you have this program sitting on your computer for a long time, as your system will crash more often, programs will not open correctly, and sometimes the system will just fail to start at all. You may even get the dreaded blue screen of death. Windows Web WatchDog also protects itself against removal. It prevents you from opening your actual antivirus program, making it much more difficult to get Windows Web WatchDog off of your computer.
