SpyProtector is another online fraud trying to gain money by pretending to be an anti-spyware. Many people interested in computer security may easily fall for Spy Protector scam because it is promoted as great security tool. It is advertised through pop-up advertisements on malicious websites. The pop-ups inform people about various infections found on a computer although SpyProtector isn’t capable of accessing a machine from the web. It is a trick to lure people into downloading the program. Spy Protector may also be installed by trojans.

When SpyProtector in already installed on board a computer, it loads plenty of pop-ups and demand paying for the services. This program provides no useful services; it simply displays falsified security reports and redirects web browser to a website which sells SpyProtector copies. Avoid downloading SpyProtector and don’t trust spyprotector.org! The website may look legitimate, but it’s a trap. $49.95 or $79.95 is way too much for keeping malware on your computer. Remove this threat as soon as possible; otherwise you will lose control of your computer due to SpyProtector activities. Related files: install.exe
