Spy Protector

Spy Protector is a renegade security application that has been based on the previously released rogue applications. Spy Protector claims to run a system scan on the infected computer, it then claims to have detected a number of errors and other problems on the computer. Spy Protector attempts to coerce users into purchasing a counterfeit antivirus program, which in actuality only serves to damage the system it has entered.
Spy Protector is distributed into the public domain via a group of malignant software makers. Spy Protector installs itself onto a system without the consent or knowledge of the end-user. Spy Protector makes use of deceptive advertising methods as a means to trick the user into believing their erroneous claims and bogus suggestions. Spy Protector is capable of fixing itself into the users system and accordingly becomes a source of multiply infections. Experts suggest the immediate removal of Spy Protector, once it has been detected.
