Peak Protection 2010 is another fraud application pushed to computer systems through fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Trojan. It’s one of the most dangerous infections at the moment as it was noticed spreading even on some reputable websites. Once you click on the ad that was created to promote Peak Protection 2010, you are either redirected to the official website o the program where you will be pushed into purchasing it, or the program runs a scanner and performs system scan by itself without your permission or will. In any case you will end up with a suggestion to purchase Peak Protection 2010 in order to ensure your system a better security.
In case Peak Protection 2010 performs system scan, once it finishes, a list of infected files is displayed. Unfortunately, it is not a list of real system threats. The same list will be provided after running system scan both on completely clear or infected system just because Peak Protection is not able to detect anything. Basically, the program displays some random files or files that do not exist, just to create an illusion the system is infected. Then it offers purchasing its full version by promising to remove the detected threats.
If the program redirects to a website promoting Peak Protection 2010 you will face the same pressure to purchase the program as it will be presented as the best security solution ever. There is probably no need to say that once inside this rogue causes tons of damage to your system and shows such alerts:
The application iexplore.exe was launched successfully but it was forced to shut down due to security reasons.

It is highly recommended to install the necessary heuristic module and perform a full scan of your computer to exterminate malicious programs from it.
