How to Uninstall/Remove Windows Profound Security Completely? (Step-By-Step Guide)

Windows Profound Security is a rogue program that prevents the users from connecting to the infected computer once downloaded. It is a scam that always tries its best to extort money from unwary users. Victims must remove this rogue program at once to avoid further damages.

What is Windows Profound Security?

Windows Profound Security is a fake security program which is cleverly disguised to behave like legitimate Anti-Spyware software. It runs in the background by seeking discovered vulnerability and starts automatically when system is started because it has dropped startup item in the compromised computer.

Generally, once you get this malicious virus in your computer, it will perform a scan automatically showing you fake warnings. It claims there are numerous infections on your computer which can’t be removed until you register the full version. Although this software may look sophisticated and authentic, it is just another clone rogue application that pretends to be antivirus software. You should but trust it. Once you have this rogue installed, your PC will experience malfunctioning programs and applications, web browser hijacks and pop-up alerts. This virus harms your PC deeply. It protects itself from deletion by blocking all important security related programs. Hence, it is suggested users to remove the virus manually to make sure all the malicious items related to the malware can be gone for good.

Please do not attempt to manually remove these items from your computer if you are not sure how to do that. Removing these items incorrectly or partially can cause your computer to experience critical errors. If you need any further help, please live chat with YooCare experts now.
