Pup.Bprotector

Pup.Bprotector is a potentially unwanted program that is classified as adware. Users complain about a number of symptoms related to this application, the most common being instant system slow down and inability to use Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers. Pup.Bprotector is said to kill flash videos on Google Chrome, and evoke "Not Responding" message on Mozilla Firefox. These few symptoms should be enough to convince you that you must remove Pup.Bprotector from your computer immediately.

This application can get into your system together with bundled software downloads from a third party, that is why you have to be careful about what you download from unfamiliar websites. Also, be extremely attentive during the installation process, because quite often applications like Pub.Bprotector can even prompt you about the oncoming installation. Unfortunately, due to the fact that users often go through the installation automatically, they end up installing things they neither need nor want.
