ADWARE/bProtect.D virus

ADWARE/bProtect.D virus, or ADWARE/bProtect.D, is the term that is used to refer to an adware helper which can bear several names and be attached to the setup file of various browser extensions, mainly Conduit, browser hijackers, and other applications. ADWARE/bProtect.D virus is also known as Browser Defender, Browser Protector, or Search Protector. If you think that this application gets onto your PC without your approval, try to remember whether you have installed a Conduit Toolbar recently. The terms of use regarding the installation of this adware helper are normally given in small print. By clicking the Install/Next button, you agree to have ADWARE/bProtect.D virus installed on your PC, which should be removed along with the toolbar, especially if the settings of the browsers are changed.

It is also important to mention that ADWARE/bProtect.D virus is not a computer infection; however, it helps the programs to which it is attached to generate advertisements and unwanted URLs. It is possible that you have learned about this application from your Task Manager which shows that browserProtect.exe is running within the system. It is not enough to end the process – the potentially unwanted application has to be removed from the PC.

In order to do so, you have to access Control Panel and uninstall it through the Programs and Features applet. If you also have a Community Toolbar on your browsers, you should remove it, too.

Keep in mind that the detection name of Browser Protect can be given to different programs, too. For example, at you can find a browser add-on which is said to be unrelated to Delta-Search, Mixi DJ toolbar, Bit89, and other potentially unwanted browser extensions that hijack toolbars.
