Just like its relative program, DesktopProtector2010 uses the same GUI and malicious tactics trying to get unsuspecting PC users into giving their money away.

DesktopProtector2010 appears to be just one more classically created rogue anti-spyware which breaks into through the help of Trojan viruses without any consent of a user. Once inside, malware starts everytime computer boots up and floods the desktop with tons of fake spyware detection reports. Every message informs the user about various threats detected and asks its victims to make a payment for their removal. Don’t follow any suggestion generated by Desktop Protector 2010! This program also imitates scanning the system for viruses and undoubtedly detects hundreds of them. Additionally, the whole bunch of trojans, worms and other malware are reported for the user by loading various pop-up ads, alerts and security notifications.
