Adware.PCProtectionCenter is a fake computer security application that displays exaggerated malware reports on a compromised PC. This is done to trick a victim into purchasing its "registered version" that will apparently remove all the detected malware. Adware.PCProtectionCenter is not able to detect malware, all the detections made are fabricated and often the files detected as malware are harmless system files. Adware.PCProtectionCenter should be removed with a reliable anti-spyware program upon detection.
