WindowsMangerProtect is a suspicious third-party application that could be advertised as a legitimate tool to improve your virtual security.

In some instances, it was revealed that WindowsMangerProtect could act quite maliciously and might be associated with suspicious activities. The dubious application could be the reason why other Internet-based infections could enter your operating system in an easy manner. Do not take any chances with this application, if you wish to keep your system clean, secure, and fully functioning. If you have discovered this PUP on your operating system, use the removal guide provided below to delete WindowsMangerProtect once and for all.

WindowsMangerProtect is developed by WindowsProtect Limited and in most instances, once it enters your operating system successfully, will implemented its files into %ALLUSERSPROFILE% or %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data folders. Usually WindowsMangerProtect comes as a part of a software bundle. The research has shown that this invasive program, in most cases, comes along with browser hijackers such as Omiga Plus, MyStartSearch, iStartSurf, and others. Knowing that the mentioned applications are suspicious, to say the least, it is quite natural that the application, which comes along with the browser hijacker could turn out to be quite dangerous as well. Thus, removal of WindowsMangerProtect is highly advised.

Unfortunately, in some cases, it might be quite hard to spot WindowsMangerProtect running on your operating system as it acts quite silently. Once WindowsMangerProtect infiltrates your operating system it will start suspicious Windows processes called WMP.exe, WindowsProtectManager.exe, WPN.exe, WindowsManagerProtect.exe, and ProtectWindowsMager.exe. These processes could be used for suspicious activities. WindowsMangerProtect could exhibit adware-like features. Thus, your browser could start functioning in a quite obnoxious way; displaying ads and pop-ups randomly. Furthermore, the research revealed that the questionable system processes could be used as a gateway into your operating system by other third-party potentially dangerous applications. In order to avoid other infections removal of WindowsMangerProtect is essential.
