Do you know what Windows Protection Master is?
Windows Protection Master is a rogue antispyware application that has been designed to steal your money without you even realizing this. It is a direct clone of such notorious computer threats as Anti-Malware Lab, PC Security Guardian, Best Malware Protection, and so on. Just like its predecessors Windows Protection Master boasts of a sophisticated interface that blends perfectly into the operating systems, and tricks unsuspecting users into believing that it is a legitimate part of Windows, installed to help them deal with various threats.
Needless to say, that all of that is nothing but a scam, and you will lose your money if you believe in anything Windows Protection Master has to say. Even though rogues have many ways to enter your computer, Windows Protection Master specializes in using fake codecs and fake Flash Player updates to get in. Normally, when a flash player update reminder pops up into your screen, if you click “cancel”, it should disappear immediately. However, if the notification keeps on popping on your screen no matter how many times you try to ignore it, it most probably is a part of Windows Protection Master’s infection, and the moment you click on it to “update” the application, you allow the rogue to enter your system.
When the program is in, it does everything a rogue can do. Windows Protection Master performs a fake system scan, flooding you with fake results, saying that your computer is infected and you have to purchase the full version of the program to delete these pests. You will definitely be plagued with fake security notifications, which are there to push you into buying this worthless program:
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk.
It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Warning! Spambot detected!
Attention! A spambot is sending viruses from your e-mail has been detected on your PC.

Please register your copy of the AV to activate anonymous data transfer and protocol through the torrent link.
Windows Protection Master is also known to block your executables, and your access to the Windows Task Manager and Registry Editor, because it wants to remain in your computer for as long as possible. Even if you don’t pay for the program, allowing the program to stay in your computer can be detrimental to your system, so you need to remove Windows Protection Master at once. If you have no idea how to perform the removal manually, acquire a computer security program that will terminate Windows Protection Master automatically.
In non-techie terms:
Windows Protection Master is a fake antivirus program that enters your computer and tries to steal your money. It slows down your system trying to make it seem as if it is infected with malware. You are definitely infected though, and that is why you must erase Windows Protection Master from your system immediately.
