Windows Protection Alarm is a rogue anti-spyware application designed by hackers for the main purposes of extorting money from computer users. Windows Protection Alarm is able to do this by mimicking the look and feel of trusted security applications. Additionally, Windows Protection Alarm will render several fake alert messages and system scan results that attempt to make a computer user believe that their PC is infected with all types of malware. As a solution, a paid-for version of Windows Protection Alarm is offered to remove the detected threats but Windows Protection Alarm is unable to satisfy its promise because it is basically a hacker tool specifically designed to trick users out of money. In other words, purchasing Windows Protection Alarm will do absolutely nothing for a computer user seeking to rid their system of malware.
It would be best to safely remove Windows Protection Alarm with a trusted spyware removal tool or take the necessary actions to manually detect and remove all Windows Protection Alarm related files from an infected PC.
