However, many computer users can take this trick for granted and lose their money this way.
Windows Tools Patch spreads on the systems using hacked websites. These websites are usually able to install rogue program without users’ knowledge. Besides, these websites can contain fake scanners which only imitate looking for infections on your machine but in fact they are useless. In any case, Windows Tools Patch attempts to prove that your system is infected.
