Windows Police Pro - Rogue Antivirus

Pop-ups can be more than nuisances; if you have noticed a recent flood of these little ads, it could indicate that there is a rogue antivirus program installed in your system.  Windows Police Pro is just one of the programs that seek to convince computer users of severe security threats and of the necessity of buying their software.  Users need to be aware that these rogue programs do not deliver on their promises.

What Is Windows Police Pro? 

There is one silver lining in regards to rogue antivirus programs; they typically behave in the same manner, so they can be easy to spot when you know what to look for.  Windows Police Pro is no different.  It is a related to the rogue program, Windows Antivirus Pro, and shares the same tactics.  When you start your machine, the rogue program launches a scan.  It is important to note, though, that this program cannot really scan your computer.  This is part of the ad, which is designed to convince computer users that they have severe security risks.  Windows Police Pro produces a list of files it claims are threats.  These are harmless, and the rogue program uses them only to create the appearance of infection.

Like other rogue antivirus programs, Windows Police Pro also uses pop-up "warning messages," which are really just ads for their expensive, and ineffective, software.  In addition, this particular program can be classified as ransomware because it will block your access to several security programs.

Is Windows Police Pro Installed in My Computer?

It is helpful to know the signs that a rogue antivirus program has been installed on your computer.  When rogue programs like Windows Police Pro become active, they leave distinct calling cards.

This is issue most often associated with rogue antivirus programs.  These often appear to come from legitimate security programs, so it is essential to look them over very carefully.  By doing so, we can distinguish them from real warnings.  A typical "warning" reads:

Security Warning

Your computer continues to be infected with harmful viruses.  In order to prevent permanent loss of your information and credit card data theft please activate your antivirus software.  Click here to enable protection.

This ad implies that it comes from your existing security program.  However, it is unlikely that your program would use inflammatory and threatening language such as if found here.  These rogue programs are designed to make computer users act quickly, and nothing prompts action like the treat of credit card information theft.

Another reads:

Windows Police Pro Alert

Infiltration Alert

Your computer is being attacked by an Internet Virus.  It could be password-stealing attack, a Trojan-dropper or similar.

A simple way to spot rogues is to look at the name.  Most clearly state where they come from, and if it is not from your legitimate program, it is a rogue ad.

As mentioned, a common tactic used by this program and other rogues is the simulated scan.  You will see a pop-up which appears to look like a Window Security warning.  It informs you it has run a scan of your system and located several infections.  It lists files that are "infected."  You are urged to remove these threats.  If you click on this option, you are led to the Windows Police Pro site to purchase the software.  If you do get to this site, never provide any credit card or personal information.  The scan has the Windows Police Pro name clearly written across the top, so make sure to take a second glance to ensure that it does not come from your security program.

It is also common for this rogue antivirus program to cause a slowdown in your computer performance because it uses a great deal of your system resources to run itself.  You will notice even easy tasks take much longer than usual.  In addition, you may also notice that your homepage has been replaced by either an error message, which urges you to "scan" your system or a Windows Police Pro site.  Other signs may include new icons or desktop shortcuts and increased 404 error messages.

How Did Windows Police Pro Access My System?

Rogue antivirus programs hope to convince computer users to purchase their software and install it directly.  While this happens as a result of the constant "warnings," it is far more common for Windows Police Pro to gain access via a Trojan.  It is possible that Trojan will enter your system if you visit a website, download a free video, open an email attachment, click on an ad or image, or participate in freeware and shareware sites that are affected by Trojans. 

Trojans are particularly common in those containing adult, gaming, gambling, and social networking sites.  Trojans like Zlob are known to inhabit sites offering free videos, and Vundo is another common Trojan that inhabits affected sites and emails.  When you visit one of these affected sites, it allows Trojans to enter.  They bring in malware, including Windows Police Pro. 

Removing Windows Police Pro

If Windows Police Pro remains in your system, it can create security issues.  It impedes your ability to access security programs, and it can exploit this weakness in order to allow in other forms of malware. It is best to remove this program as soon as you notice it is present in your system so you can keep your computer protected. 

You can remove this program manually but should only attempt this if you have extensive technical experience because there is the risk that your computer can be damaged in the removal attempt.  A faster, and more effective, method is automatic removal with a program like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) . This program has been designed to detect and remove rogue antivirus programs, which are not classified as viruses and can't be handled by running your current virus scan.  It is strongly recommended that anyone, especially those with limited technical experience, remove with this option.
