Windows Pro Web Helper is a security program that pretends to be legitimate, but it isn’t. Actually, it is a complete scam. This program detects and reports infection via a fake scanner. It shows fake scan results about the infection and also hijacks your internet browser in order to make you believe that your computer has been infected by manyviruses and Trojans. The only purpose of WindowsPro Web Helper is that they make you think into buying its full version. Make sure not to purchase its full version as it is only a waste of money.

As it is installed in your computer, it will automatically run each time you login to your windows. Right after its launch, it will start scanning of your system without your permission and displays many infections that will only be fixed – apparently – until you buy the full version. An important thing is that all the warnings and reports regarding infection are false and some infected files donot even exist. Thus, you can safely avoid these notifications.
