How to remove Total Virus Protection?
What is Total Virus Protection?
Total Virus Protection (a.k.a TotalVirusProtection) is a new rogue anti-spyware program, a fake spyware remover, which will try to trick the user into purchasing it’s "licensed version" by intimidating him with fake threats. This parasite typically makes it’s way to the system by using trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, but can also be manually downloaded and installed.
Once inside and active, Total Virus Protection will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. This information may coincidentally be true, but Total Virus Protection has neither the ability to detect nor remove infections either way. This parasite will also hijack the browser and provide falsified system scan reports to further disinform the user. Upon convincing the user of the existence of an infection, Total Virus Protection will prompt him to purchase the full version, which is no more functional than the trial.

As soon as the victim downloads Total Virus Protection trial version, it pretends to scan your computer and shows a grossly exaggerated amount of non-existent errors. Then, Total Virus Protection offers to buy the full version to fix these false errors. If the user agrees, Total Virus Protection does not only fix the errors, but it also takes the user’s money and may even install additional spyware into the victim’s computer.
