Antiprotect

Antiprotect Description

Antiprotect aka Anti Protect is a fake security application used to swindle unsuspecting users. Antiprotect can be distributed by Trojans or malicious websites. On entering a PC Antiprotect will generate fake security alerts, pop-up warnings and scanners claiming that the system is infested with viruses, spyware and more. These annoying security alerts will also advise a victim to purchase the "full version" of Antiprotect in order to remove all the detected computer threats. This is all a scam and users should never pay for Antiprotect.
