1. What is Windows Repairing System?

Windows Repairing System is fake anti-spyware program that is used to deceive computer user by making him believe that his machine is infected. This program will state that Trojans have been detected on user’s machine and will ask him to run computer scan. Therefore, those warnings and alerts have to be ignored. The program belongs to the same family as Windows Saviour Firewall, Windows Accidents Prevention, Windows Anticrashes Utility, Windows Troubles Solver, Windows Custom Settings, Windows Necessary Firewall, Windows Risks Preventions, Windows Firewall Unit, Windows Profile System, Windows Precautions Center.
