Your Protection.

Your Protection is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as User Protection and Dr. Guard.
Usually, this rogue program comes from fake online scanners and misleading video sites, but it may come bundled with other malware too. Once installed, Your Protection will run a fake system scan and report false system security threat to scare you into thinking that your computer is infected with Trojans, worms, spyware, adware and other malware. Then it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections or system threats. Don't purchase it! This is nothing more but a scam. Instead, please use the removal instructions below to remove Your Protection from your computer as soon as possible.

Just like its predecessors, Your Protection will block legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware programs. What is more, it will even attempt to uninstall your anti-virus program claiming that it's infected. That's not true. Furthermore, this fake program will flood your computer with fake security alerts and pop-ups from the Windows task bar. As usual, those fake alerts will state that your computer is infected or under attack from a remote computer. Some of the fake alerts you will probably see if your computer is infected with this virus.
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
  • mplay32xe.exe
  • urpprot.exe 
Location of the infection:
  1. C:\Program Files\Your Protection\urpprot.exe 
  2. C:\Program Files\Your Protection\mplay32xe.exe
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstallYour Protection
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTFoldershellexContextMenuHandlersSimpleShlExt "(Default)" = "{5E2121EE-0300-11D4-8D3B-444553540000}"
Although it is possible to manually remove Your 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.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
