How to tackle the menace of VirusProtectPro?
VirusProtectPro is a deceitful malware program that claims to be a commercial antispyware. The software is installed without permission on the user’s computers and registry via a type of Trojan infection called Zlob Trojan. This Trojan disguises as video or audio codec required for viewing a movie or listening to an audio file. When launched on your computer, the Zlob Trojan will automatically download and install VirusProtectPro. After installation, the Trojan will automatically launch and start a scan of your computer. This scan will provide exaggerated or false results and sends messages like “System Error, Buy this software to fix” or “Your System is infected with spyware, buy VirusProtectPro to clean it”, redirecting users to VirusProtectPro’s homepage where they are prompted to buy the VirusProtectPro software.
