Windows Component Protector Removal Guide

Do you know what Windows Component Protector is?

If you are having problem loading your Windows Task Manager check whether you are infected with Windows Component Protector. This rogue antispyware application is very easy to spot - it loads together with your operating system and starts a fake system scan immediately after the infection. So if you see a fishy program claiming that it has performed a full system scan and has "found" a number of viruses on your computer it might as well just be Windows Component Protector.

Windows Component Protector is not the first rogue in line, as it belongs to the same cluster of rogues as Windows No-Risk Agent, Windows Software Saver, Windows Antihazard Helper and others. This rogue usually gets into your system via two distribution methods - fake online malware scanners and infected websites. Both methods are equally efficient and you have to be very careful as fake flashy advertisements are lurking behind every corner. Don't believe a button that says you need to perform a quick system scan, because then you will most definitely be infected with Windows Component Protector.

Once the rogue is in it tries to cut you off from any means of rogue removal so apart from spamming you with fake security notifications it also blocks the access to Windows Task Manager, Registry Editor and the Internet. In a sense this way Windows Component Protector makes sure that it stays in your computer for as long as possible, bombarding you with fake notifications, urging you to purchase the license:

Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet
C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe
is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

Whatever you do, DO NOT pay for this rogue, because this is exactly what Windows Component Protector wants you to do. This way you would only allow cyber criminals to access your bank account. Instead of paying for this worthless application you should remove Windows Component Protector from your computer permanently. To help with the removal, "register" Windows Component Protector with this registration code:


It will NOT remove Windows Component Protector, but you will have enough time to either terminate it manually (if you know how to work with Registry Editor) or to delete Windows Component Protector automatically using a computer safeguard tool of choice.

In non-techie terms:

Windows Component Protector is a malicious computer program that will destroy your system in attempt to steal your money. You have to remove Windows Component Protector from your computer before any of that happens.
