Privacy Protection virus is the subject of this post for today. It is outwardly and inwardly the same as Malware Protection and Security Protection viruses. This is a fake antivirus tool that has just recently been developed. Nevertheless, it is now actively attacking many PC in the world. It is amazing how quickly this parasite is spreading, and many users all over the world are getting really worried, searching for remedies on its elimination. We have been able to test this virus on our test machine. We discovered that this program is not what it claims of itself. Its promises to clean your PC from viruses and to make it work better are all fake and should be entirely ignored. Moreover, you should not buy any version of Privacy Protection, cause this is what it only wants from you.
Scaring users is the only technique that this hoax uses to make them pay for it. This is how it is done. The rogue arranges fake system scans and then, upon their completion, it presents plenty of fake reports about lots of viruses and problems discovered on your PC. Once again we clearly warn you that such viruses and problems do not exist in reality, and possibly your only PC problem is PrivacyProtection virus itself. Why is it a problem? This is all because this program would come up with every Windows startup and prevent you from using your PC for some period of time. It would also prevent you from running certain executables (programs), lest it is removed from your system.
To summarize the aforesaid, this is not the program that you should trust or have inside of your machine. Hence, remove it as instructed in the video guide submitted below.
