Updated version of Windows Recovery virus is now attacking even more computers worldwide

We have told you about Windows Recovery virus already, haven't we? The aim of this short essay is to seriously warn you of the fact that Windows Recovery scareware has been recently updated up to the new version. It looks just the same as the previous one, however, the results of its malicious activity are slightly different then those of its previous version. That's why some reliable anti-virus tools are not able to fully get rid of Windows Recovery scareware. They indeed remove the majority of essential virus components, however, regretfully, certain virus files and registry entries are still present inside of the attacked HDD. This is why your desktop might be totally missing (or having black or blank background) and totally useless (you will not be able to modify its settings or view your common icons kept on it).

We have just tested this most recent updated version of Windows Recovery scareware. The anti-virus databases of GridinSoft Trojan Killer have been recently updated by GridinSoft LLC. If your system has been contaminated with Windows Recovery virus and you have the above-mentioned symptoms then you may now download and install GridinSoft Trojan Killer and have your system fixed. In addition, below please find certain additional guidelines showing more steps that should be done by you if you want your system to be entirely recovered (in the good sense of this word) after Windows Recovery virus infiltration.
