In addition to unauthorized startups, this virus also tunes up the PC in a manner that allows the hoax to be started automatically together with every system startup. Thus, each time you launch your computer the GUI of System Progressive Protection virus comes up.
Immediately the rogue begins scanning your computer, but this is just the imitation of a real scanning, of course. The report that is followed afterwards is a fake report too.
