Do you know what Windows Protection Unit is?
In the past few months we have been annoyed by rogue family which releases a new fake antispyware application almost every single day. The family is called Rogue.VirusDoctor and Windows Protection Unit is the newest addition to the ever-growing group of computer threats. Windows Protection Unit virtually is no different from its predecessors (Windows Stability Maximizer, Windows Processes Accelerator, Windows Efficiency Reservoir etc), and you can expect this rogue to damage your system for good, if you do nothing about it.
Windows Protection Unit usually arrives at your system via fake online malware scanners. Users are encouraged to use these "scanners" online, and they don't even notice as they get infected with something like Windows Protection Unit. Once the rogue is in, it configures your computer in a way that it allows Windows Protection Unit to load automatically with your operating system, and then the rogue embarks on its mission to rip you off, by giving you an impression that you have been infected with multiple viruses, and you must use Windows Protection Unit to get rid of them.
Windows Protection Unit's tools of trade include the fake system scan, fake security notifications, and a few other tricks that the rogue makes use of in order to push into paying for the worthless product. As far as the fake notifications are concerned, they are generated randomly and do not have any decent information on the current security status of your system:
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.
From this message you can also see that Windows Protection Unit blocks various executables including your Internet browser. Even though the rogue says it happens because of other infections, do not be fooled by it! Windows Protection Unit only needs to remain in your system for a longer period of time, and so it cuts you off the Internet, so that you wouldn't find out how to remove it. Windows Protection Unit also denies access to Windows Task Manager and Registry Editor, in case you were well-versed in computers and knew how to terminate the rogue manually.
In order to remove Windows Protection Unit without the rogue interfering, you should "register" it:
Use this activation key to "activate" Windows Protection Unit and then get a reliable antimalware program that will delete Windows Protection Unit from your system at once. Just because you have registered the rogue it does not mean the threat is gone, so the sooner you get rid of Windows Protection Unit, the better.
In non-techie terms:
Windows Protection Unit is a fake computer security program that slows down your computer and blames other "infections" for it. You have to erase Windows Protection Unit as soon as possible otherwise you will experience an ultimate system crash, even if you refuse to pay for this bogus program.
