Digital Protection is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as User Protection and Your Protection malware. This rogue program displays fake security alerts and infections to make you think that your computer is infected with malicious software. Once installed, it will simulate a system scan and report numerous malware infections on your computer. Of course, the scan results are false so you shouldn’t worry to much about that, but you should remove Digital Protection from your computer as soon as possible because removal delay may worsen the situation. Please follow the removal instructions below to remove Digital Protection from your computer either manually for free or with an automatic removal tool.

DigitalProtection is promoted through the use of Trojans and other malware that usually comes from fake online anti-malware scanners. When running, it will attempt to uninstall legitimate anti-virus program from your computer: AVG, Avast!, Avira Antivir, NOD32, F-Secure and other well known antivirus applications. And of course, you will see a bunch of fake security alerts on your computer. Some of them will state that your computer is infected with malware whereas others will claim that you are under attack from a remove computer. Just like the false scan results, these fake security alerts should be ignored. Some of those fake security alerts read:

Warning! Virus threat detected!

Trojan-Clicker.Win32 adware has been detected. This adware module advertises websites with explicit content. Be advised of such content being possibly illegal. Please click the button below to locate and remove this threat now.

Digital Protection will also create several shortcuts to the porn sites called nudetube.com and pornotube.com and place them on your Desktop. As you can see, DigitalProtection is nothing more but a scam. Don’t buy it! If you have already purchased it then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Then follow the removal instructions below to get rid of Digital Protection either manually or with an automatic removal tool.
