How to remove Windows Oversight Center virus. Detailed guide explaining how to get rid of Windows Oversight Center malware

Regretfully, the malicious clan of fake system optimizers which seemed to be in the process of later winter and spring hybernation has now woken again, having given birth to its new representative named Windows Oversight Center center. This is exactly what we are going to devote this post to. What is Windows Oversight Center and how to remove Windows Oversight Center fake system optimizer? After reading this newsletter you will become confident that Windows Oversight Center is the virus and the only wise solution for you would be to delete Windows Oversight Center scam from your system immediately. We will also show you how to uninstall Windows Oversight Center virus from your system in our simple and clear video guide.

Windows Oversight Center virus, similarly to its predecessors, is intalled in the form of fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alerts. Suddenly the user, after surfing some sites or downloading certain files over the Inernet (which is full of viruses, malwares and threats) faces the following message in front of him/her:

You should realize that it is fake and originated by virus and not by Microsoft corporation. Its goal is to force you to install Windows Oversight Center virus that would scare you with its fake reports about system problems and errors supposedly detected during its fake system scan. Its final goal is to scare you into purchasing Windows Oversight Center rogue program. Therefore, we in advance have warned you not to trust Windows Oversight Center and not to pay a cent for it.

This fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert would state that it has found some supposed solution over the Internet that would be able to eliminate all supposedly detected threats. Such a fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert forces user to proceed with the installation process of Windows Oversight Center malware. If the user chooses to click "Close" button then this fake Microsoft Security Essential Alert popup window would come up again with the next Windows startup.

This is when the name of Windows Oversight Center first comes up in front of you after you click OK button.

Then Windows Oversight Center would force you to reboot your PC, and then, upon the restart, the main GUI window of Windows Oversight Center virus would be just in front of you. Windows Oversight Center would arrange fake system scan which would report all kinds of fake system errors and problems.

But the most horrible thing is not these fake scan reports. Since they are all fake they should not be treated seriously. What really annoys is the persistency of irritating popup messages, ads and other unpredictable and unauthorized warnings and all kinds of messages which are generated by Windows Oversight Center. The very fact that Windows Oversight Center would appear with every Windows start is also quite annoying. Moreover, Windows Oversight Center would not let you work with your PC until it finishes its fake scan. At the end of such fake scan you will be able to shut down the window of Windows Oversight Center and use your PC. However, you won't be able to remove Windows Oversight Center virus using any decent anti-virus application, for example, GridinSoft Trojan Killer. This is the message which appeared after we tried to download and run GridinSoft Trojan Killer.

How to bypass the blockage of Windows Oversight Center to remove it using GridinSoft Trojan Killer?

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

  • 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.
  • In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Oversight Center (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.
  • Upon the system restart Windows Oversight Center will no longer block your Internet application. Download the latest version of GridinSoft Trojan Killer to your infected computer, install it and run it.

We are confident that removal of Windows Oversight Center is quite a feasible task for GridinSoft Trojan Killer. So, if your PC is infected with Windows Oversight Center malware, Gridinsoft Trojan Killer is a good program that can help you remove the above-mentioned virus. Bear in mind that GridinSoft Trojan Killer is not free, however, it is effective in removing all modern threats and viruses which have contaminated the world wide web.
