Privacy Protection is a rogue antispyware program that spreads on the Internet with the help of Trojans. It makes computer users pay money for its useless version and easy collects money for nothing. That is another infection from the same family as Malware protection and Security Protection.

As soon as your computer will be supposedly scanned, you will be told that your system has been attacked by severe malware. The message will also say that as a result it can cause unauthorized access to your private information and hard drive data with a serious possibility of irreversible data loss and unstable PC performance. You may be also asked to install some software in order to initiate system files check. Later on it will download and install Privacy Protection program and right when you restart your computer, the fun part will start.

Each time you will try to log in to windows you will first of all see a fake scanner. It will imitate performing system scan and claim that your computer contains a large amount of infections. Then it will offer purchasing a full version of Privacy Protection by stating that it's the only way to get rid of all infections. The scanner will be led by multiple pop up ads and security notifications:

If you cant even open your browser because of the virus, you can always start the computer in safemode with network capabilities and you should be able to download the needed tools and install them.

Thanks, STOPzilla! it worked like a charm. Once installed from jump drive (yes, jump drive, since I couldnt even open my broswer nor could I open taskmgr, nor regedit) and run the scran, right the way, found this parasite in somekind of folder name hklm. And as I restarted the computer, everything is back to normal.
