Today we will again talk about System Progressive Protection malware. Quite a lot has already been told about this fake anti-spyware program, but the degree of severity of this scam’s distribution around many countries of the world gives us the grounds to write more and more about it. This scam enters system without warning or user’s approval. Immediately it begins perverting your system. First, it modifies some important system files and registry entries in order to be started automatically together with each system startup. Thus results in users encountering this fake anti-malware program each time they want to do something on their PCs.
The problem with System Progressive Protection virus is that it blocks running of security applications installed on your system. It doesn’t really matter what antivirus program you have installed. System Progressive Protection will tell you that the file you attempt to execute is infected. Well, this is not so, of course. This hoax tells many untrue facts and statements, in fact. You shouldn’t trust any deceitful information expressed by it. For example, it will also keep telling that the legitimate Windows files are also infected, such as Task Manager, Registry Editor, etc. By the way, even if you choose to launch Wordpad.exe or Notepad.exe the hoax will state the same thing to you. Thus, the very presence of this scam is surely very annoying.
