Do you know what Data Protection is?
Data Protection is yet another rogue security program, hailing from the same rogue family as: Digital Protection, Your Protection, User Protection, Dr. Guard, Paladin Antivirus. As with many of these type rogue programs, Data Protection, should be removed from any PC it has infiltrated, immediately upon detection. Data Protection has one main goal - to coerce users into purchasing its full version. Data Protection tends to simulate a system scan which produces only distressing results of a variety of malware infections being ‘present’ on the system. All of this is fake – and is just a ploy used to ensure the sale of their full version software. Annoying pop-up messages are also added to the equation in an attempt to drive the user to spend money on the rogue program.
In non techie terms
Data Protection is a total scam! Do not fall for their tactics of persuasion - Data Protection will only harm any PC it has infiltrated. Removal is key!
