Internet Protection is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antimalware Tool.
This malware is installed onto your computer through the use of fake scanner pages and Trojans that pretend to be updates to Adobe Flash. When Internet Protection is installed onto a computer it will be configured to start automatically when Windows starts. Once started it will perform a fake scan of your computer and then state that there are numerous infections present. If you attempt to remove any of these so-called infections with the program it will state that it is unable to do so until you purchase it. As none of the infection files actually exist on your computer, please disregard these scan results and do not purchase the program.
While Internet Protection is running it will also display numerous fake security alerts warnings that are designed to make you think that your computer has a severe security problem. The text of these messages are:
Your system has come under attack of harmful software. Click here to deactivate it.
Just like the scan results, all of these warnings are fake and should be ignored.
As you can see, Internet Protection was created for one reason; to scare you into thinking your computer is infected so that you will then purchase the program. For no reason should you purchase Internet Protection, and if you already have, you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges stating that the program is a computer infection.
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
Location of the infection:
- %UserProfile%\Application Data\[random].exe
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "<random numbers and characters>"
Although it is possible to manually remove Internet Protection, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend malware and spyware removal applications.
