Windows Protection Suite is a rogue anti-spyware application that is part of an enormous family of fraudulent security software, the FakeVimes family. Windows Protection Suite infiltrates a computer without user approval or knowledge. Once active, Windows Protection Suite displays false system scanners and fabricated security alerts, in order to intimidate the user into believing that the computer is heavily infected. The user is then prompted to purchase and download the commercial version of Windows Protection Suite in order to combat these fictitious threats.

There are countless rogue security programs plaguing the Web all around the world. Some of these programs are clones of Windows Protection Suite, except that its designers had made small changes to their names and interface. The clones of Windows Protection Suite include Virus Melt, Presto TuneUp, Fast Antivirus 2009, Extra Antivirus, Windows Security Suite, Smart Virus Eliminator, Packed.Generic.245, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Enterprise Suite, Enterprise Suite, Additional Guard, PC Live Guard, Live PC Care, Live Enterprise Suite, Security Antivirus, My Security Wall, CleanUp Antivirus, Smart Security, Windows Work Catalyst.
