How to remove Windows Essentials Pro 2013 Virus from my computer, it is crazy!!! Currently, many computer guys found out that there is a program pups up automatically when they just log in windows.

If it is a virus, how do i remove it???
Is Windows Essentials Pro 2013 Legit or A Virus/ Fake AV?
The Windows Essentials Pro 2013 virus has been designed to fool computer users into thinking that their computer is infected with dangerous viruses and malware. Once installed, it will surface when the computer is tuned on and will perform what looks to be a real computer scan. The results that are displayed are of course false, but since it resembles a real virus removal tool many users believe that the threats are real. The program then provides the user with the option to remove all of the malware that has been detected, and when that option is selected it states that the program needs to be upgraded in order to complete the full removal of these detected threats.
The entire Windows Essentials Pro 2013 virus has been developed to get the user to pay for this upgrade of a program that doesn’t even work, but they also gain access to the credit card information. This can be used for further fraud by the hackers or they will pool together all of the stolen credit card information and sell it on the black market. From that point on there is no telling what will happen to the users information. If a user has fallen for this scam then we suggest that they immediately contact their credit card company to dispute the charge and also cancel the credit card. The credit card company will typically do this automatically since it was involved in a fraudulent transaction and then issue the user a new card number. You must remove the virus from your system ASAP.
