As usual, such fake programs display many warnings and notifications about serious security threats and privacy issues. ProtectPcs will also state that it has detected many critical spyware objects and that these objects can damage your critical files or expose private information. Of course, that's not true. This is just a part of whole scam. Besides, no matter what you decide to do, it will ask to pay for a full version of the program to protect your computer from malware and possible attacks from the Internet.

What is more, ProtectPcs will impersonate Windows Security Center (the fake one is called Security Center) and report that antivirus protection is turned off. Well, even if it is, ProtectPcs won't protect you from anything simply because it is and infection itself and should be removed from the system without doubts.
