Most of the time, Virus Protector is promoted through the use of trojans and other malware. Trojans come from fake online scanners or other bogus sites and then download this fake program onto your computer. Once installed, VirusProtector will run a fake system scan and display a list of infections that can't be removed unless you first purchase the program. Obviously, it wasn't designed to do that, so it won't remove any infections. What is more, it will display many fake security alerts and pop-ups claiming that your computer is under attack or baldy infected by Trojans. Non of these statements are true. Don't be fooled, Virus Protector just tries to scare you. Some of the fake alerts states:
