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.
