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.

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.

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.
