Once hidden unto your system, Cyber Protection Center will scan your system (those are false scans!) and will display lots of infections. You will eventually get  the Cyber Protection Center window with that particular message you saw at the beginning of this document. Do not buy that license for Cyber Security !

This is because Cyber Protection Center was designed this way in order not to get cleaned easily. Lots of Windows applications (including your System Restore and Registry Editor) will not work at all. Your browser settings will be modified by Cyber Protection Center. It will also show you the advertisement you saw at the beginning. Cyber Protection Center will stay resident in the background the whole time.
