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.
