The purpose of all this is to make the user purchase the complete version of the application, which actually does not exist.

This rogue program causes irrevocable damage to your system. Thus, it must be removed as soon as possible once upon detection.

Bear in mind Windows Secure Workshop is only designed to pretend as a fake optimization program. It was released to gain the income for scammers by tricking people into paying for so called ‘registered version’. Don’t fall into this trap! This malware may replace background with huge warning about infections, and  even stop your PC from executing all programs. It won’t eliminate any threats but only infect your machine further with more cyber intruders. Ransomware like Canadian Police Cybercrime virus can also find a way to attack the infected computer. The malicious activity of this rogue program should be ignored and eliminated as quickly as possible so as to secure the stability and normal operation of an infected PC.
