ProtectPcs, what’s the deal with this malware? The hackers who created this spyware also circulated such viruses as SysDefence, TheDefend, and about a dozen other similarly designed programs. They are a talented group of hackers who are spreading infections at an insane rate. They use stealth Trojan infections and spam you continually after infection, until you shelve out your money for a “full version” of the fake software.
If you are plagued by ProtectPcs, then you’ll have to consider a manual or automatic removal as soon as possible.
The most common methods of infection occur through Trojans or attachments, on questionable websites, video codec downloads, and e-mail phishing or spam. For these reasons, it’s vital that every internet user has an active scanner while they browse the net. There are just too many serious threats that exist for the average internet user.
The symptoms of infection are slow computer performance, altered desktop, and tons of annoying popups. Not to mention fake virus scan results at every system boot-up. The entire process is a giant pain in the rear.
What’s the quickest, easiest way to get rid of ProtectPcs?
So how do we remove ProtectPcs? A manual removal is free, and it’s possible, but it involves a tech-savvy computer user who knows her way around a system registry. Specific processes, DLL, and LNK files must be blocked, as well as related websites and programs. I frequently recommend that the average user avoid manual removal, because the wrong deleted file can result in a computer that no longer starts up.
I myself am capable of editing a registry, and even I prefer automatic removal. Why? Because it’s easy, it’s fast, and it offers future protection. It’s the way to go, whether you’re a beginner or an expert. Automatic software is readily available, and if you think you’re infected, you should scan your computer and uninstall ProtectPcs the easiest way possible.
