KeepCop enters a computer with the help of Trojans that usually come from fake online scanners, misleading websites, spam e-mails and fake messages in social networking websites. Once a Trojans is installed, it download rogue application on the compromised computer. It may also download additional malware to make situation more complicated. KeepCop then reports a list of infections that can be only removed with a full version of the program, though, this is of course not true. It just tries to trick you into purchasing the program.
What is more, KeepCop constantly displays fake security alerts and notifications stating that your computer is badly infected or under attack by an internet virus. The rogue application impersonates Windows Security Center [Figure 2] and suggests activating KeepCop to ensure full system protection. It can also block anti-virus software and certain Windows tools like Task Manager, Registry Editor or System Restore to protect itself from being deleted.
