Protector.exe – file that unites many latest rogues
The beginning of the year 2012 gave rise to appearance of relatively new malware programs (rogues) that are known as one-day rogues. They appear in the majority of cases to last within about 24 hours, being replaced with new malwares the following day. Their name gets amended, however, the inner part remains the same. All such malware programs start with “Windows”, but surely they have nothing in common with Windows operating system and Microsoft Corporation. It is quite peculiar to all such rogues that they have some common similarities, in addition to the ones stated above. In fact, they share several similar processes, like “protector.exe”. To be more precise, it has extra three random digits after “protector”. So, if this rogue actually entered your system then such process is up and running on your computer. In such case using Task Manager to terminate the malicious process of this scam might not be sufficient enough, since Task Manager is often blocked by the rogue. In order to remove this hoax from your system completely it is recommended that you download, install, update and run GridinSoft Trojan Killer, the powerful anti-malware solution from GridinSoft LLC.
