System Protector is a rogue anti-spyware application. It is advertised and installed without user's permission through the use of trojan viruses when browsing malicious websites. Usually, these trojan viruses display fake security alerts or similar notifications. System Protector is advertised as security scanner, but the truth is that this parasite only mimics normal anti-spyware programs. The main goal of SystemProtector is to frighten the user and trick money from him.
Once installed, System Protector is configured to start automatically and to scan the infected system. After the scan, System Protector states that user's computer is seriously infected and strongly suggests to purchase a full version of System Protector, because trial version can only detect infections, but is is unable to remove them. Of course, those infections are all fake. System Protector displays the same list of infections on all infected computers. This parasite also has built-in utility that blocks security-related websites. It is highly recommended to remove System Protector from the system as soon as possible, because removal delay can only worsen the situation.
