Protection System - How To Remove?


Protection System is a rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which typically uses trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, to enter the system. The trojan is disguised as a video codec and distributed in various websites (mostly porn). Protection System relies on misleading advertising to trick users into thinking they are infected and therefore in need of the “licensed version” of this fake program.

Once inside and active, Protection System floods the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. While this information may in some cases be correct, Protection System has neither the ability to detect nor remove any of these “threats”. Much like any other rogue, Protection System performs fake system scans, which produce greatly exaggerated results, oftentimes containing false positives. In addition to all these less-than-awesome features, Protection System will also significantly decrease system performance.

Protection System is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block its homepage using your HOSTS file.
