In the same way, Windows Vista Recovery will first use Trojans and harmful scripts to cause your computer to run badly. Then, Windows Vista Recovery will try to charge you to fix the very problems Windows Vista Recovery caused. Don't fall for the scam. Instead, remove Windows Vista Recovery with an anti-malware tool.

This rogue security application can also change Windows Vista Recovery's interface and skins to match the infected operating system.
