My Protection is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Your Protection and User Protection malware. As a typical rogue security program, MyProtection is promoted and installed through the use of malware, mainly trojan viruses that come from fake online anti-malware scanners or from misleading online video web sites. Once installed, My Protection will run a fake system scan and report numerous false system security threats to make you think that your computer is infected with various malware when actually it’s not. Finally, it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections. As you can see, this is nothing more but a scam. Don’t pay for it. Instead, please use the removal instructions below to remove My Protection from your computer as soon as possible.
When running, MyProtection will attempt to uninstall active anti-virus and anti-spyware programs running on your computer. It will mainly look for avast!, AVG, NOD32, F-Secure, Avira Antivir, Norton Internet Security and other well know antivirus programs. For example, My Protection will claim that AVG is infected and that you should uninstall it. That’s not true, because the only real infection is MyProtection itself. Furthermore, the rogue program will constantly display many fake security alerts and notifications from the Windows Taskbar claiming that your computer is badly infected or under attack from a remote computer. Just like the false scan results, those fake security alerts can be safely ignored.
Although, this infection can be removed manually from a computer, we strongly recommend you not to do so and use legitimate and reliable anti-spyware program to remove My Protection and any related malware. Please note that this rogue program may come bundled with other malware, mainly TDSS rookit. It may hijack your web browsers or even disable certain Windows tools. That’s why you should run a full system scan with an automatic removal tool to completely remove this infection. Also note, of you have already purchased this program then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.
