Do you know what Internet Protection is?
Rogue security tools comes in all forms and shapes, and some like Internet Protection even have the ability to come across as a properly functional and legitimate security tool. That is why a healthy dose of skepticism is required when dealing with unknown or suspicious applications like this. Internet Protection derives from the same despised family of rogues as Antimalware Tool, Security Defender and Antimalware Defender, and will work hard to convince its victims of its legitimacy.
Internet Protection enters the system surreptitiously with the help of browser hijacking websites and rubbish online malware scanners. It will hide its presence on the system from the user until it decides to start its attack. This will happen by Internet Protection spamming the user with various fake security alerts generated in an effort to panic the user into thinking his PC is under attack. These fake alerts should not be taken seriously as they are all completely fake and without merit.
In a further attempt to confuse the user and convince him of its legitimacy Internet Protection uses genuine Windows icons and logos as part of its interfaces. This contributes to making Internet Protection look genuine and trustworthy but it is in fact quite the opposite.
The various fake security alerts Internet Protection will report on are not on the system, but do exist. Internet Protection does this in case the user decides to review or research the parasites online that they will be convinced that the threats on their PCs are real. Some of the fake threats reported on include TrojanDownloader:Win32/Renos/JT, PWS: Win32/Yahoopass.A, Spammer: Win32/Tedroo.AA, Worm: Win32/Conficker.B and Worm:Win32/Taterf.gen!A. Internet Protection will only ‘remove’ the fake threats from the system once the user purchases a license for the useless software.
When all is said and done you will only be able to regain control of the system if you get rid of Internet Protection immediately. This is best achieved by making use of a genuine security tool which will not only destroy Internet Protection but also protect the system against future similar threats.
In non techie terms:
Internet Protection is a fake security application out to rip you off. Do not trust anything this application has to say, and obliterate Internet Protection without further delay.
