1. What is Windows Saviour Firewall?

Windows Saviour Firewall is a fake anti-spyware application, which infects computers with the help of Trojans and uses fraudulent tactics to show user that his computer system is infected with malware. Users might consider the program as trusted, because it has comparable functionality and appearance similar to authentic anti-spyware programs. Windows Saviour Firewall can perform computer scan, detect viruses, alert user about found threats and computer security problems – just like any other PC security software. The truth is that all threats detected by this program are not real and are displayed in order to scare user and persuade him that Windows Saviour Firewall will remove malware by paying for the license.
