Your PC Protector Removal

Your PC Protector is a rogue anti-spyware application that belongs to the same family as Windows Police Pro and Windows Antivirus Pro. This program gets installed through Trojans that reach the user through security loopholes and as attachments to spam emails. Once installed, the malware will perform fake scans of the system and generate a number of reports stating that the user’s computer is under threat. It will also hijack the user’s web browser via a Browser Helper Object and generate fake search results that will redirect the user to Your PC Protector’s homepage. The virus then tries to trick the user in to paying for the ‘full’ version of the software, claiming that the currently installed ‘trial’ version is inadequate to remove the detected false ‘threats’. However, no user should allow him to be tricked into paying for this software, as none of its versions can scan or clean any computer system.
