PC-Prot is a corrupt anti-spyware application that is commonly brought into your computer by a Trojan, exploiting browser security vulnerabilities. As soon as PC-Prot is installed, it will create corrupt reports of non-existent virus threats. PC-Prot will then try to fool you into buying the "full version" of the promoted program. Malicious activities of PC-Prot may also slow down your computer system severely or even cause it to crash. It is strongly recommended to remove PC-Prot once it is detected.
