Nowadays, while there are various computer viruses scare lots of computer users, all sorts of antivirus software are born. But a group of certain people comes along at the same time. This group aims at collecting money from vulnerable victims via fake antivirus programs. System Protection Tools is one of these fake programs.
System Protection Tools is known as a malicious fake program that will boast to you that it can take care of your computer and remove all the threats. It may give you the first impression that it’s an antivirus software as the interface of it looks legit, friendly and helpful. But in fact, it’s indeed a virus which is quite similar to Windows Antivirus Care, another infamous fake serial virus. This program is classified as a rogue as it displays false information in order to trick you into purchasing the program. In fact, it absolutely plays a role of villain. It’s a virus that hides on nasty malicious websites or in bundled downloads, camouflaged as fake video codecs or spam email attachments. System Protection Tools prepares to attack PCs anytime once it gets an opportunity. The chances to be infected can be one of your careless operations such as visiting some malicious sites, clicking on a cataleptic video or advertisement link, etc. Then it will install in your computer without your notice and permission. Once the rogue is installed on your computer it will change your computer settings and then start automatically every time when Windows starts. System Protection Tools will run an overall scan as a computer internet security software. After the scanning is done, it will pop up a fake scanning notification claiming that your computer has been infected with critical viruses and system errors. Your computer is in extremely dangerous condition. But don’t believe what it says. This program takes no responsibility for its words or statements. And all the scanning results are just some useless files created by this software or even not existing in your computer. If you attempt to use the program to remove these detected viruses and malware, it will require you at first to purchase the full version before it can do so. What is worse, it will block the legitimate Windows applications and many other functions of the infected computer, for example, Windows Task Manager and Registry editor. Therefore, it is the best choice to ignore the scan results. Do not waste any of your time or money on System Protection Tools, and then carry out an immediate removal.
