WinWeb Protection is a potentially unwanted program, which, according to its official website, protects computers against viruses when browsing online and is responsible for other Internet services. However, it seems that it may also be used to spread various browser plugins, promote third parties, track people's browsing habits and initiate similar activities. WinWeb Protection is designed to run only on Windows operating system, so it seems that if you use other OS, you may feel safe. If you think that WinWeb Protection is inside your computer, you should waste no time and check it with updated anti-spyware. Otherwise, you may start suffering from browser's redirections, continuous pop-up ads, browser's slow downs and similar issues.
How can WinWeb Protection infiltrate my computer?
WinWeb Protection is mostly propagated using unfair distribution methods. You can download this or any program, which is related to it, from the Internet in a bundle with freeware and shareware. In order to avoid such downloads, be sure to monitor freeware's installation process by choosing a Custom or Advanced method. In addition, uncheck all check boxes that say that you agree to install WinWeb Protection products. No matter that this program hasn't been found to be involved to the distribution of viruses, it may make you visit insecure websites, force you to download insecure programs and may initiate other potentially-unwanted activities.
