Repair Programs
There are tons of fake computer repair programs on the internet today. For the average user they can be rather

confusing as they make these ridiculous claims of being able to repair your system from a plethora of errors that are

supposedly invading your system. You should be very weary of these programs.


How do these programs work?


These fake repair programs work by getting onto your computer, maybe through an email or web application and then

imitating a real security scan suite, they will present you with a number of problems that are supposedly bedevilling

your system. Once it's finished running its fake registry or virus scan, it will then try and get you to buy the software.

It's very important that you do not fall victim to this scam. In addition, the developers of these fake programs will also

attempt to take control of your system, rendering your system inoperable, messing with your applications and stealing

personal data. Fake messages will continually show up on your screen listing a number of errors on your system, all

of which is designed to make you think your system is error prone.


How do you remove these programs?


So, if you have accidentally installed one of these programs onto your system, what can you do to remove them?

Well, there are a number of applications that you can use, most notably Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which is a tool

that you can use to easily remove these kinds of programs from your computer. The first thing that you will need to do

is find this program and install it on your system, a quick Google search should be sufficient in finding it. An anti-
malware program is exactly what you need to get rid of programs like this. There are quite a few on the market, but

the one I recommended is currently the best.


Once you have the anti-malware program installed on your system, you may have to reinstall some other security

programs, depending on what you're currently using. If the fake repair program is fully entrenched on your system,

then it may try and prohibit you from installing the program. If that happens, then you should consider logging into

safe mode, and downloading and installing the program from there. If you've noticed that one of these programs has

taken a hold of your system, do not fail to act. Take the necessary actions to have your system cleaned.
