Protection System may be rather misleading, as its name leads one to believe that it will protect a computer system against threats and parasitic invasions.
Do NOT be fooled into thinking this application will assist you in maintaining the security and integrity of your system! Protection System is a scam, and behaves like your typical rogue anti-spyware applications do.
Protection System is believed to be a derivative of the infamous CoreGuard Antivirus 2009 rogue application. Protection System displays a few key properties:
• Protection System is a corrupt Anti-Spyware program
Protection System is propagated via the use of Trojan horses, the likes of Trojan Zlob or Vundo. Sometimes Protection System will also make use of misleading websites and other malware applications to ensure an infiltration into an unsuspecting computer system is successfully carried out.
Protection System was designed with one purpose – to convince computer users that their PC’s are infected with malicious content and to coerce these unsuspecting individuals into purchasing a licensed version of the malware, in order to remove all ‘threats’ and protect their data and privacy.
Once Protection System has embedded itself within a system, it will automatically configure itself to run automatically every time you turn on your computer. Protection System may even modify the computer’s desktop with a help of a desktop hijacker, so that the user will not be able to change the wallpaper on their computer.
Once Protection System is registered, the parasite will prevent the user from changing their desktop background, and will leave the user unable to remove all malware.
Experts strongly recommend the removal of Protection System as soon as possible.
A system that has been infected with Protection System may display the following basic symptoms, which a computer user should look out for:
• Slow computer performance:
• New desktop shortcuts or switched homepage:
• Annoying pop-up messages:
Manual removal is probably your best bet at maintaining the integrity of your computer, but manual removal should only be tried by those individuals that know a bit about registry files, and should be left to the individual who knows how to navigate their way around system files.
Manual Removal process can be performed as follows:
• Stop Protection System Processes:
• Find and Delete these Protection System:
• Remove Protection System Registry Values:
All in all though, I would recommend, especially if you are not completely tech savvy, to make use of a reliable and legitimate, fully functional, up-to-date anti-spyware application, to remove Protection System and all its components from the infected computer system.
