Live Protection Suite is a rogue anti-malware that bombards users with fake alerts to make them purchase its full version
Live Protection Suite is a fake security application that is often advertised on insecure websites or might be downloaded together with shareware or freeware. Nevertheless, because the program deems to be useful by removing malicious entries, users mostly install it voluntarily.
Upon installation, Live Protection Suite 2019 performs an alleged system, which finds hundreds of problems with the machine, as well as computer viruses, such as Backdoor.Duuzer.B – a trojan that might install malicious files and steal sensitive information, such as banking details or login credentials. Indeed, many users would be scared of such an outcome. However, Live Protection Suite is bogus software simply trying to make users buy its full version, and its scan results should not be trusted. It is a mere copy of Antivirus 10 – another rogue anti-virus application that was infecting users around the world in 2017.
Thus, never trust the scan results, pop-ups and other malicious activity this app engages into and instead remove Live Protection Suite 2019 from your Windows operating system as soon as possible.

There are many fake programs in the wild that claim to be useful but are actually bogus, such as registry cleaners, driver updates, and even anti-malware applications. However, quite often, these apps are not dedicated to be useful for end users, but instead, make them purchase the licensed version or offer fake tech support services. Live Protection Suite 2019 is no different – it uses deception to make victims believe their systems are infected with malware by making the following claims:
Attention! Your computer is under attack!
As a result of a spyware attack, your computer Microsoft Windows has been infected! All of your important data, including documents, photos and logins are at severe risk of being sent to hacker remote host.
Live Protection Suite has successfully prevented this attack, but unfortunately you are using unregistered version of the software and this does not offer you protection against attacks in the future!
These type of messages are typical in tech support or similar scams – crooks insert malicious websites that displays fake warning messages to make users download bogus tools or call fake tech support. Live Protection Suite virus does precisely the same thing, it is just an application that is installed on your device shows these messages rather than websites on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or another browser.
But Live Protection Suite does not stop there. It also imitates legitimate Windows pop-up messages, such as Update windows, Windows Defender warnings, and similar. Additionally, the program prevents its termination and starts displaying intrusive ads and redirects to porn, as well as other dangerous websites.

Unfortunately, those who agree to register and pay for the fake software might hand in financial information directly to cybercriminals. This data can later be sold on the underground forums or used for money or identity theft.
Therefore, do not delay and perform Live Protection Suite removal immediately. Due to its evasive nature and persistence techniques, we strongly advise you use reputable anti-virus software to terminate this threat. Also, it is unknown what type of system modifications Live Protection Suite 2019 virus performs, so we recommend scanning the device with Reimage to fix infected system files.
Rogue anti-malware software uses trickery to get into your PC – do not let that happen
There are many different kinds of potentially unwanted programs – some are quite harmless and can be eliminated easily, while others might engage in malware-like behavior and put computer security at risk. Most of rogue anti-malware tools can be classified as the latter, as they display fake pop-up windows impersonating legitimate programs, prevent its termination, and redirect users to malicious sites.
Besides using shady techniques when operating, rogue anti-spyware also uses deceptive methods to get into users' machines. While most of such apps can be downloaded on specially crafted websites that deem their legitimacy and usefulness, most of the PUPs are installed together with shareware or freeware obtained from third-party sites.
Therefore, you need to ensure the secure installation of free software from the internet by picking Advanced/Custom settings and removing all the unwanted components from the final installation list. Additionally, you should always research whether the app is legitimate and useful by reading reviews online.
Delete Live Protection Suite 2019 and use reputable security software instead
Live Protection Suite removal might be a bit complicated because the app belongs to more aggressive PUP types. It prevents users from closing it in the usual way, and process termination from Task Manager might not bring any results either. For that reason, we recommend users to scan their devices with reputable anti-virus software instead.
Real security applications do not show flashing windows or scary warnings – all the detected threats are displayed in the scan results window, the location of the virus is also present, as well as what was done to it (usually it is put to quarantine or deleted). While it is normal for security applications to cost money, they will not demand payment at every possible chance. Therefore, we suggest you download and install an app that is trusted by many users and security experts worldwide.
Besides, after you remove Live Protection Suite from your PC, scan it with Reimage to ensure that the malicious program's alternations and changes to Windows system files are reverted.
You can remove virus damage automatically with a help of one of these programs: Reimage, SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes. We recommend these applications because they detect potentially unwanted programs and viruses with all their files and registry entries that are related to them.
