The Windows Recovery Virus Returns

Over the past few weeks we have been receiving comments from technicians and private subscribers who have used Reimage to resolve the Windows Recovery Virus.

This virus has been around for a while but has recently resurfaced. The Windows Recovery Virus is a harmful malware that disguises itself as a certified Microsoft optimization program, initiating a scan of the user’s hard-drive, with or without permission. Once this has happened, we must assume that the virus has infiltrated the system, effectively hijacking it by modifying the system settings. It then proceeds to disable any anti-virus and firewall applications. In many cases, the virus prevents any installed programs from running, rendering the PC virtually unusable. To add insult to injury, the virus repeatedly prompts the user to purchase the Windows Recovery registration key, in order to repair the unstable system.
