July 2, 2012 - PRLog -- Windows Privacy Extension, since its introduction just a couple weeks ago, continues to be among one of the most annoying malware applications around. Windows Privacy Extension comes from a large family of fake security applications. Within this family of programs, there are many apps that have been identified by security researchers to be virtually the same as Windows Privacy Extension. Some of them, such as Windows Premium Console and Windows Custom Management, are known to render virtually the same misleading pop-up alerts and system scan results.

Windows Privacy Extension is not a trusted program and is not able to fulfill its promised duties. Purchasing a registered copy of Windows Privacy Extension will not enable any additional functions for detecting or removing malware on a PC.
