Do you know what Total Virus Protection is?
Total Virus Protection is an unfavorable rogue anti-spyware program that pretends that it is a working spyware remover. Total Virus Protection, from our research, has not removed a single bit of spyware from our system. It may be safe to say that Total Virus Protection is a complete fake and should never be trusted for detection or removal of spyware or any other type of virus or malware infection.
Total Virus Protection or TotalVirusProtection, may popup up many fake alerts that attempt to get you to purchase a fully registered version of the Total Virus Protection program. You must know that purchasing Total Virus Protection is not the answer to stopping these popups or system notifications. You must remove the actual Total Virus Protection program as it is just as bad as having a virus on your computer.
In non-techie terms:
Total Virus Protection may come from some of the same sources as other fake anti-spyware programs such as from the Zlob Trojan or a website that advertises fake anti-spyware programs. In the case of Total Virus Protection, www.totalvirusprotection.com is the website that advertises and pushes the Total Virus Protection program. Total Virus Protection may also perform a system scan on your computer coming back with many parasites found in the results. The results are not trustworthy and only used as a scare tactic to, once again, trick you into wasting your money on the full Total Virus Protection program. Do not ever purchase Total Virus Protection under any circumstances.
