Privacy Protection hoax application would not let users have a piece of mind until it is successfully eliminated. However, removing this malware is not that easy as it might seem. At this very present moment so many blogs who want to be first in their search engine rankings are publishing so many articles promoting certain anti-virus program developed or advertised by them. Often they know nothing about the virus and rogue program yet they claim to know how to get rid of it. So they recommend some particular anti-virus program without even realizing that it is actually blocked by Privacy Protection malware. Thus, their posts really make no sense at all since they don’t really help users eradicate the virus on their machines. It is not a coincidence that the installation of GridinSoft Trojan Killer is also blocked by Privacy Protection rogue. However, there is a good remedy on how to bypass this blockage. Please be so kind to carefully watch the video tutorial submitted below on how to effectively delete the virus from your contaminated computer. Please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time if you require our assistance on any security issue.

  1. Great! I did it! It’s actually very hard to remove, it stops every defense and browser program. The important is to write the command above exactly, especially the spaces. Thank you very much, Andy!!!

  7. Jeg kan ikke komme på nettet fra min computer da den er ramt. Jeg har fundet denne side via en anden computer. Når jeg trykker på start – kør og skriver taskkill.exe/F/IM privacy.exe, så kommer der en pop-up med teksten “Windows kan ikke finde taskkill.exe/F/IM. Kontroller at du skrev navnet korrekt, og forsøg derefter igen”
    Hvor skal der være mellemrum henne i det jeg skal skrive ?
    Jeg kan ikke kopiere fra denne side, når jeg ikke kan komme på nettet. Håber I kan hjælpe mig hurtigt.

    Dear Dorte: I don’t access internet similar you, too. i used another computer to download killer trojan but i copy via my computer then don’t install killer trojan software. hic hic hic. we have a trouble. I hope anybody can help me and you.

  9. If you internet does not work on regular mode, turn it off and then start with Safe Mode with Networking. It will allow you to go on the Internet and download.

  10. Just to say as of 14/11/2011 this fix is still a good one. Just to repeat, type it exactly as seen, and keep doing it until the process dies, it will even if it refuses to several times.

    Thankyou for this fix

  11. hi, i believe i was attacked today. i start in safe mode and ran some other software, i believe i was able to delete privacy.exe. now in regular mode, downloaded trojan killer, ran it and couldn’t find anything, neither has malware bytes, think i’m good?

    when i try to use the run script it just opens and shuts very quick and i can’t read the text. maybe that’s because the program is no longer on my cpu?

  12. i right clicked on the icon, clicked properties to find the shortcut’s file path. i then ran the computer in safe mode, opened the command prompt and typed in “del [virus’s file path]\privacy.exe

  13. Thank you for this fix, this is a nasty rogue, lot of bad advice on how to fix it out there, this was the fifth thing I tried and the first that worked

  14. I couldn’t stop privacy.exe using “taskkill.exe /F /IM privacy.exe”, Windows says it cannot find the file. So here’s what I did:

    * Navigate to takkill.exe by going to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\privacy.exe
    * Change the name to something different (e.g.: 99204pricavy) Be sure to remove the .exe extension.
    * Then restart your computer and privacy protection will have been deactivated.
    *Then run Trojan Killer or any other anti-malware program and remove it for good.
