What is KMSPico?

KMSpico is a tool that is forced as a Windows activator from which users shouldn’t expect anything positive. Nevertheless, many sources claim that the application is highly malicious and dangerous as it can open backdoors for other threats. Usually it attracts users who want to get commercial software, including Windows systems, for free, so victims themselves invite malware components into their PCs. Besides, KMSpico asks to disable all security applications before installation, which looks highly suspicious. We don’t recommend using KMSpico or applications alike, as first, it raises the dangers of virus infections and second – it offends against the laws of digital piracy. Thus, we strongly advise to remove KMSpico and the malware installed alongside with it from your system.
