System Progressive Protection virus description and removal instructions
System Progressive Protection virus is not a new topic in the computer security field. GridinSoft Trojan Killer anti-virus Lab has published a series of posts dedicated to this computer infection. Nevertheless the number of victims constantly increases. The users tend to treat it seriously and then regret about it. So we will tell some words about System Progressive Protection virus again. It occupies its own room within the category of fake and rogue security applications. It deliberately twists your cyber reality in order to achieve some purely commercial purposes.
This rogue presents an incredible number of various types of ads while running on your workstation. It shows fake scanners, triggers bogus popup alerts etc. By means of creating this horrible realm the rogue wants to show you that you have serious problems, a lot of them. For example, it lists many infections in its fake scan reports, which is definitely supposed to scare some of you. However, it’s senseless falling for those as they are just some mythical threats that never were on your computer and therefore cannot possibly harm it in any possible way. The annoying aspect of this virus is not a standalone and dominating one here. It’s purely an instrument for attaining more tangible goals to quench the fraudulent interests of its developers. System Progressive Protection never fails to use the intimidation we mentioned above to convince its preys to commit one single deed – to effect the payment for the licensed or so-called full version of it.
Still hoping that System Progressive Protection would delete viruses after the payment is actually effected? Not at all, because there’s basically nothing to get rid of. We mean the so-called ‘threats’ that had been reported are just nonsense files that are either not on your system at all or do not present any risk. Having now understood the true objectives and the cruelest of intentions of System Progressive Protection, treat it as a real virus worth immediate removal.
