Digital Protection is a malicious rogue antispyware application that is guaranteed to cause you computer hell. Digital Protection will do everything within its power to try to convince users that they have malicious threats running on their machines. Once the user is convinced that they have malicious threats running on their machines, they will be offered the full version of Digital Protection, which promises to remove all the threats for a set fee. This is all one big scam which you need to stay far away from.

Your system settings may change.
Digital Protection needs to be removed correctly upon immediate detection. You have the option of the manual removal process or the automatic removal process. It is vital for you to know that you can cause serious additional damage to your computer if you make use of the manual removal process. It is suggested that you invest in a decent antispyware application that allows you to both detect as well as automatically remove Digital Protection.
The reason why it is absolutely important to remove Digital Protection immediately is that this fake antivirus program comes from the same family as Your Protection, and it tries to uninstall security applications in order to prevent itself from being removed from your computer. For example, Digital Protection is able to disable such programs as F-Secure, NOD32, Norton Internet Security, Avira AntiVir and others. Once these programs are disabled Digital Protection launches a fake system scan that is supposed to convince you that your system is infected with GayCodec.lookAlert, PORN.perversion.RIO, webSearch.Win32 and other malware.
To support its claims, Digital Protection displays a range of fake security notifications:
There is unauthorized antivirus software detected on your computer. It is recommended you to remove it, otherwise it could conflict with Digital Protection. Press OK to remove [Security Program Name].
Sometimes Digital Protection even blocks you from running various programs you have installed on your computer. Whenever your attempt to run the program is blocked, the following message is displayed:
Warning! Virus threat detected!
Since the only thing this fake antivirus program wants is money, you must remove Digital Protection right now. Do not hesitate to acquire a legitimate security tool that will not be affected by Digital Protection and will remove the rogue for you automatically in no time.
