System Protection 2012

With all the opportunities that the internet opens there are unfortunately whole bunch of negative things as well. For example, System Protection 2012, which is the direct clone of System Security 2012, is one of them. This fake antivirus program will enter your computer without your knowledge or permission, because its main goal is to only rip you off. Therefore it is more than obvious that you need to get rid of System Protection 2012 the moment you notice that you are infected.

This rogue will enter your system surreptitiously without alerting you to the fact. It does this by making use of various established forms of infection which range from bogus online malware scanners to seditious browser hijacking websites. Once it ingrains itself securely into the system, System Protection 2012 will start its attack.

This will start by the rogue initiating a fake system scan. This bogus scan will yield falsely generated results which will inform the user that his PC is under attack. It will also go on to inform the user that the only way to protect his PC will be to pay for a System Protection 2012 license. Shortly after this the rogue will start spamming the user with various falsely generated security threats in the form of pop up messages, two of which reads as follows:

Warning infection found
Unwanted software (malware) or tracking cookies have been found during last scan. It is highly recommended to remove it from your computer.
Keylogger Zeus Keylogger Zeus is a very dangerous software used by criminals to steal personal data such as credit card information, access to banking accounts, passwords to social networks and e-mails.

Symptoms associated with this rogue include users being unable to connect to the Internet as well as being unable to execute applications on the infected PC. This is done in an effort to further annoy and panic the user as well as prevent him from running or downloading any application which may be able to detect and remove System Protection 2012 from the system. Other symptoms range from randomly generated and deleted Desktop items to system folders being hidden from the user.

It would be even better if you managed to avoid the infection altogether. That includes being careful about what you click when you browse the Internet. A lot of flashing and bleeping links you see on various sites are usually related to System Protection 2012 and similar rogues. Clicking on them results in immediate infection, because System Protection 2012 downloads and installs automatically.

Then you need to deal with loads of fake security messages that will appear every other minute and slow down your computer. System Protection 2012 tries to make you think that you are seriously infected and you need to buy the license for System Protection 2012 in order to get rid of these threats. You only need to remove System Protection 2012 in order to get your computer back to normal, so do not wait any longer and do it with a reliable security program.
