Cyber Protection Center - How To Remove?

Type: Rogue Anti-Spyware

Cyber Protection Center is a fake security program, which typically enters the system by using downloader trojans, or by tricking the user into downloading it via fake online scans. This parasite relies on misleading advertising to sell it’s so-called “licensed version”, which is a completely useless and annoying application.

Once inside and active, Cyber Protection Center will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present system. The parasite will back this claim up by performing fake system scans, which mark harmless files as threats. After having scared the user into thinking his system is infected, Cyber Protection Center prompts him to pay for the “licensed version” in order to remove the non-existent threats.

All of this aside, Cyber Protection Center might also change browser settings, block real security software from installing, block Task Manager and System Restore. This is all a self-defense mechanism, meant to prevent users from deleting this malware.

This program is a threat and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and remove Cyber Protection Center immediatelly upon detection.

  1. Hi there,
    Just wanted to say thanks for this info on Cyber Protection Centre! My fella accidentally downloaded it and now our whole OS id knackered! CAn’t even load up Vista, or run the laptop as normal! It’s a total nightmare…won’t even allow you to delete the .exe files from C:\. It prompts for authentication code, which is obviously a fake thing to do! If they were hoping to make some money from me, then they’ll be outta luck as I’m skint! But that’s not the point, so just wanted to THANK you for helping me find a solution, failing throwing it outta the window! I’ll let you know how I get on. Cheers
    Josie :O(

    Thats it !!

    All praise is due to God!

  3. Be warned that Mazar’s solution DOES NOT remove Cyber Protection Centre, and unfortunately he’s dropping the same “solution” in many sites I’ve googled about this pesky program. Killing “cs.exe” is only a temporary measure, it WILL restart – don’t be fooled.
    After trying this “fix”, go to the Remove Programs section of your Windows Control Panel – you’ll see it’s still there, but try to Remove the program and it immediately starts up again.
    Also check Start->All Programs, you’ll probably see a folder called CSec – that’s where Cyber Protection Centre has installed itself. Of course, there’s no uninstall option.

  4. Reputable -Spyware Doctor from PCTools was the only way I could get rid of this. Cost £30 for 12months cover.
