Peak Protection 2010 is a rogue security program that displays fake security warnings and reports false threats to scare you into thinking that your computer has some serious security problems. It prompts users to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats. Don’t trust this bogus program and uninstall it from your computer upon detection. Peak Protection 2010 is promoted mostly through the use of Trojans that come from fake online scanners and other misleading websites. Malware authors also uses deceiving social engineering methods to promote their rogue products. Once installed, the rogue program will supposedly scan your computer for malware and then display a list with different infections, such as Trojans, spyware, adware, and other malicious software. PeakProtection2010 will then state that you have to register the program to remove the infections.

Basically, it will ask you to purchase absolutely useless software that won’t remove any infections and won’t protect your computer against other virus or threats from the Internet. Please don’t purchase it. If you have already bought it then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges stating that this is a scam. Finally, please use the removal instructions below to remove Peak Protection 2010 from your computer. We recommend STOPzilla, but you can also remove it manually. What is more, Peak Protection will block task manager and other system tools to protect itself from being removed. You will have to end its processes first and then download our removal tool. You can use Process Explorer to end the malicious processes. Just rename procexp.exe to iexplore.exe before saving it onto your computer. Otherwise, Peak Protection 2010 may block it just like all the other programs on your computer.

    my laptop screen appers with the peak protection 2010 as soon as I turn it on. How can I remove this screen message

    Restart your computer. Press F12 when it first turns on. Choose to “safe set up” or something named like that… then choose to do a system restore.. Restore as early as you can.. This will remove everything youve done to your computer since that date. Hopefully you backed up your computer before downloading peak protection.. if not then you will at least have removed some of the damage. when you log on to your username, the peakprotection screen takes over again, but you just press ctrl+alt+del, and delete it to close it. Then you will have access to the internet and other things again. Your welcome!
