Windows Protection Tool

Windows Protection Tool is a fraudulent anti-virus program which you should remove from the computer once you find that it makes the system inoperable. The application can be installed surreptitiously, and, if the computer is not protected against malware and spyware, you may learn about the presence of the program only when it provides you with its fake scanner. The function of the rogue application is to convince you that the computer riddled with multiple computer infections and that you can get rid of them by registering the application. Your money is all that the creators of the malicious program want; Windows Protection Tools only imitates system scans to deceive you; hence you should remove it from the computer as soon as you can.

To make the impression that your personal information stored on the PC is in danger, Windows Protection Tool restricts access to the Internet. Additionally, it blocks executable files so that you cannot launch any computer security tool. You may also notice some start-up problems, which are most likely caused by the rogue anti-virus program. Some misleading pop-up warnings may also be displayed by the fraudulent program:

Trojan activity detected. System integrity at risk.
Full system scan is highly recommended.

Warning! Identity theft attempt detected
Hidden connection IP:
Target: Microsoft Corporation keys
Your IP: XXX.X.X.X

There is no need to invest in the useless program because it is enough to remove it from the computer.

Windows Protection Tool cannot be trusted because it is replaces Windows Protection Booster, Windows AntiVirus Booster and many other identical applications, which are called the Rogue.VirusDoctor family. The programs attributed to this category resembles Microsoft’s product; however, the famous corporation is not related to the production of the malicious program.

If you are tempted to purchase the registration key for the application to see how it works, use the key provided below. After registering the application you will find that it pretends that all the infections detected earlier are removed:
