Digital Protection Does Not Protect – It Infects
What Does Digital Protection Do to Your PC?
Digital Protection enters your system via Trojans camouflaged like legitimate Windows infection alerts. Once in your system, it will disable or even damage your anti-virus applications such as Avast!, Agnitum Outpost Security Suite, AntiVir, AVG8, Avira AntiVir, F-Secure, Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, NOT32 and Norton Internet Security currently on your PC. Every time your PC reboots, the fake program will simulate system scans, and will start displaying alerts stating that your PC is infected with viruses that are not, in fact, present in your system.
A typical message states that you have been infected by the bogus virus “PORN.perversion.RIO.” Other messages Digital Protection generates look like they come from the Windows Security Center. The rogue anti-virus program is capable of preventing other programs from running, displaying alerts that they have been infected too.
Here are some examples of Digital Protection’s messages:
Unauthorized person tries to steal your passwords and private information. Click on the message to prevent identity theft.
→A security threat detected on your computer! This malicious program may steal your private data. Click on the message to ensure the protection of your computer.
→There is unauthorized anti-virus software detected on your computer. It is recommended you to remove it, otherwise it could conflict with Digital Protection. Press ‘OK’ to remove.
and more. The rogue program can also redirect your browser should you attempt to access the Web. It will also block the access to websites offering malware removal and support.
The purpose behind Digital Protect is to scare you into purchasing its full version that promises to perform a full system scan, and take care of your system’s virus infections. Once you complete the payment, however, nothing happens because Digital Protection has no real capability of detecting and removing viruses – especially if those viruses have never been there on the first place.
How to Remove Digital Protection
It is clear by now that Digital Protection is not a legitimate anti-malware program – it fabricates fake security messages, blocks your real anti-malware tools and tricks you into paying for a non-existent “full version.” Thus, its removal is a must.
You can remove Digital Protection simply by following the steps below.
Spy Hunter FREE scanner will only detect the threat. If you want the threat to be automatically removed, you need to purchase the full version of the malware tool.
