System Protector Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

ScreenshotSystem Protector, or SystemProtector, is a rogue anti-spyware program designed to trick users into believing it's a legitimate anti-spyware program.

System Protector may be installed in the user's computer system by a Trojan, such as Zlob, through a rogue video codec download or the user may have downloaded it from a rogue website. Once Zlob is installed, the user will receive a large amount of fake notification messages stating that his/her computer is infested with spyware. In order to remove these threats, the user will be redirected to a fraudulent website to further purchase System Protector's full version. System Protector is also able to emulate a computer system scan. After System Protector's scanner is launched, the user will receive a list of spyware infections supposedly found in his/her computer system as a result.

System Protector may be configured to run on every Windows startup. System Protector may also cause computer system's performance to decrease.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot
