Best Virus Protection Description
Best Virus Protection Provides No Protection Against Viruses
Best Virus Protection, despite its name, is not a real anti-virus program. Rather, this fake security application is part of a scam, a kind of malware infection known as a rogue anti-virus program. Like its clones, Best Virus Protection is usually linked to an invasive Trojan infection that may often come accompanied with a dangerous rootkit component. All of these fake security applications carry out the same basic scam; they enter the victim's computer without the computer user's authorization and then spam the target with constant, alarming, false error messages. These are meant to scare computer users, and make them think that the infected computer is severely infected.
Then, Best Virus Protection – a malware infection itself – will claim that Best Virus Protection can remove these non-existent problems... for a fee. Of course, this is all part of a scam constructed to prey on computer users that are relatively new when it comes to computer security. After all, computer users with a bit more time using the Internet have come to find that spammers and criminals take advantage of any opportunity they can get to force computer users into becoming infected with malware and have learned to mistrust supposedly free anti-virus programs like Best Virus Protection. Malware associated with Best Virus Protection has the capacity to shut down many Windows components that are crucial when someone needs to deal with malware such as Windows System Restore, the Windows Registry Editor and even something as useful as the Task Manager.
Stopping and Protecting Yourself from Best Virus Protection
Most of the time, Best Virus Protection can be removed automatically with the help of a reliable anti-malware tool obtained from a reputable, trusted source. To bypass Best Virus Protection's self-defense mechanisms, it is often enough to start up in Safe Mode.

Stay away from websites that are typically associated with malware, such as pornographic video websites, online casinos and websites dealing with pirated software or media.
