Windows Defender detects and removes this threat.
It can be used to "crack" or patch unregistered copies of Microsoft software.
Don't use hacktools as they can be associated with malware or unwanted software. We have seen malware distributed with these tools.
Hacktools are often installed intentionally. Deleting their installed components will remove them.
Run antivirus or antimalware software
Use the following free Microsoft software to detect and remove this threat:
- Windows Defender for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, or Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7 and Windows Vista

You should also run a full scan. A full scan might find hidden malware.
