Remove Windows Scan virus

Windows Scan is a fake defragmenter and computer optimization software. The program is installed onto your computer with the help of trojans through system holes that insecure. Moreover, WindowsScan might come together with some malicious application.

Screenshoot of Windows Scan

As soon as Windows Scan is installed on your computer, it starts scaring you by throwing fake alerts on the screen. Some of the alerts are:

Critical Error! RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure.
Critical Error! Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.
Critical Error! Windows can't find hard disk space. Hard drive error.
