Windows Protection Booster

If you have encountered a fake security application Windows Protection Booster, do not fall into its traps and definitely not buy the license that costs $ 99.90. This fake application is not going to do anything beneficial to your system because it is just eager to extort money from innocent computer users. This rogue application is not the one; it is known that Windows AntiVirus Booster and Windows AntiVirus Helper are the programs that have been replaced by Windows Protection Booster. All of them belong to FakeVimes family of infections and they usually infect those computers with Windows operating system on them. Thus, you should be extremely careful if you are using any version of this OS.

The removal of Windows Protection Booster is obligatory if you want to access your desktop again. It also blocks such essential tools as Task Manager, Registry Editor, and Windows Explorer in order not to be removed. Thus, the removal process itself is not very easy. Luckily, we are here to help you.

After the installation on your system, Windows Protection Booster is going to try to convince you that your system is heavily infected. For this matter, it is going to display various fake pop-ups and warnings. In addition, it will perform a fake scan and then show you a list of infections that are supposedly running on your PC. Do not be scared, all these threats are non-existent; it is just a trick to scare you. However, if you ever try to fix all those infections, you will be asked to upgrade the fake program to its full version.

You should definitely not do that if you do not want to lose all your money. In addition, you will have to enter such credit card details as CVV, your address, expiration date, and similar important information which might enable cyber criminals to use your credit card for their personal purposes. Do not buy the license in any way; the best what you can do is to erase Windows Protection Booster from the computer.
