Windows TurnKey Console is a release of FakeVimes family. The program was created to make its creators rich by deceiving users, convincing them that their computer is full of viruses and different infections and promising that all the problems will be solved when the user will buy the license key for the program. But in reality the program just will show the fake scans and fake infections, so the user should know that the license key of the program is also fake, because it will not solve all the problems, it will just deactivate the program and all the infections that might have been on your computer will stay. Until the user will remove Windows TurnKey Console, it will run with every computer startup, spoil computer performance and show numerous annoying fake security alerts.

Autorun of Windows PC Aid can be fixed in Hijackthis by fixing the line:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Inspector] %AppData%\Protector-(random 4 chars).exe

To unlock your PC and get rid of alerts use following code:
