How to remove Windows Power Expansion using GridinSoft Trojan Killer anti-malware tool

This morning I woke up, turned my computer on and saw strange and most probably fake Microsoft Security Essential Alert telling about some unknown virus present on my PC

This is the beginning of the e-mail message we received from one of PC users whose computer system got infected with Windows Power Expansion fake system optimizer. After browsing the web databases containing links with malicious application we were able to download this rogue and test it in order to give this user correct recommendations on successful removal of Windows Power Expansion. Below please find these recommendations, read them carefully and follow them step-by-step. We really wish your system is now clean and not affected with this pest called Windows Power Expansion, but if you have become its victim, then this article is right on time for you - here it is told how to get rid of Windows Power Expansion virus.

Windows Power Expansion is a fake, rogue and scam tool. It is fake because it claims of itself to be some good anti-spyware tool but it is not even close to be called anti-spyware. It is spyware by itself. It is rogue because it masks its actual malicious goals and evil plots under some "good" made promises and nice-looking design and outwardly friendly appearance. It is scam because it is designed in such a manner that it scares users by originating horrifying reports telling about lots of problems with his/her PC. However, all such reports are not true. The fact is that Windows Power Expansion is a problem by itself.

Just as we said above, Windows Power Expansion arranges fake system scanning reporting plenty of errors, bugs, gaps and leaks in the security of your PC. It then offers itself as a solution for fixing all such errors by offering you to pay for full version of Windows Power Expansion. Do not be deceived like that! Windows Power Expansion cannot become your security protector, no matter how convincing it might sound or seem to be. It cannot repair your PC security errors, it cannot enhance its speed. It can only steal your money if you finally trust and obey it. To summarize the above-menioned, Windows Power Expansion is like a wolf in the clothes of a sheep. You probably know this parable from the Bible. Well, it clearly depicts Windows Power Expansion and its developers from Russia. They only aim to get your money and that's it. Do not trust them and do not pay their junkware program. Make sure and remove this virus using GridinSoft Trojan Killer or some other decent anti-malware program. If you decide to choose GridinSoft Trojan Killer you need to carefully follow the below-given instructions prepared by us. We hope they will be clear and simple for you. Make sure and watch the video guide provided, showing all steps on how to delete Windows Power Expansion virus from your desktop or laptop PC.

Before downloading and running GridinSoft Trojan Killer for deleting Windows Power Expansion some extra preparatory steps must be implemented. This is necesary, because Windows Power Expansion blocks your Internet connection, and you will not be able to run GridinSoft Trojan Killer.

  1. In order to prevent this blockage make sure that your Operating System is tuned up in such a mode that hidden files and folders of your PC are viewable. Go to the folder %User Profile%\Application Data\Microsoft. Important! Depending on the Operating System of your computer, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7. In other words, the folder that should be opened is as follows, depending on the operating system: %SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows XP and %SysDrive%Users[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows Vista/7.
  2. In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Power Expansion (with the icon of avi file, and there may be several of them), having some random name. Rename the above-mentioned executable file(s) into some other name of your choice and restart your computer.
  3. Upon the system restart Windows Power Expansion will no longer block your Internet application. Download the latest version of GridinSoft Trojan Killer to your infected computer, install it and run it.

The removal procedure of Windows Power Expansion is similar to removal of Windows Remedy virus as shown on the video below
