We’ve noticed a sudden increase in the users complaining from the so-called Microsoft Windows and Office activation tool – the KMSPico. Even though Microsoft is constantly warning users to use only their original serial numbers for Microsoft Products, some users are trying to use other means, which leads us to the KMSPico application. The KMSPico claims to provide users with various applications patches or serial numbers for some Microsoft products, including Windows OS, Microsoft Office and some other Microsoft products, however, according to the majority of the malware researchers around the Internet, KMSPico is a rogueware application, which brings many other malware infections to users’ computers. According to our malware researchers, the KMSPico is usually distributed using suspicious software bundles, which are set by default to make system and web browser modifications, without users’ notification or consent! So if your computer starts acting funny after installing some software bundle, that claims to provide some popular application, you should consider your computer infected with a malware and our security experts are recommending you to perform a full-system malware scan, using some up-to-date and reliable anti-malware software, just like the award-winningSpyHunter.

How to remove Enter A Product Key Lock Screen virus
What is Enter A Product Key:
Threat Classification: Ransomware/Rogueware
Enter A Product Key is a nasty, deceptive and bogus and phishing pop-up, which first goal is to deceive computer users, that their Microsoft Windows copy has not been properly activated and to re-activate this edition of Windows, they need a product key. The Product Key is usually located either on the original Windows DVD box, or in the e-mail message, that was received together with the receipt, after you bought Windows. The user is than asked to enter the genuine windows activation key or to call the Microsoft Technician Helpline 1-888-414-4284. Now is the time to make one thing clear – 1-888-414-4284 help line number is in no way affiliated with/or to the Microsoft Corporation, the rightful owner of the Microsoft Windows Operating System. Upon a closer inspection, on the malicious “Enter A Product Key” Lock Screen, you will notice, on the top-right is located an inscription “Microsoft Technician Helpline +1-888-414-4284“!!! However, the “Microsoft Technician Helpline” has nothing to do with the Microsoft Corporation, the rightful owner of the Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. If your computer starts showing the most annoying and extremely strange “Enter a product key” Lock Screen pop-up message:
Enter a product key
Your product key should be on the box that the Windows DVD came in or
Pin an email that shows you bought Windows.
The product key looks similar to this:
PRODUCT KEY XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

That is why MyPC HealthCheck is classified as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program), but some malware researchers even classify it as a Rogue System Tool, that uses misleading techniques common for any of the newer rogue AntiVirus or AntiSpyware tools.
