ScreenshotPrivacy Protection Suite, also known as PPSuite, is a rogue anti-spyware program usually installed by the Trojan Vundo. Once infected by Privacy Protection Suite, you'll receive numerous fake security alerts and system scan results stating that your computer is infected with spyware. To remove the supposed spyware infections, Privacy Protection Suite will then urge you to purchase Privacy Protection Suite's full program from its website (Ppsuite.com) for $79.95 or $49.95.

Privacy Protection Suite's website may seem to be a legitimate website, however, Ppsuite.com is the home of a major scam. All links provided by Privacy Protection Suite will most likely redirect you to malicious websites that sell Privacy Protection Suite as a legitimate spyware remover. Privacy Protection Suite may have the ability to recreate itself after reboot. It is strongly recommended to remove Privacy Protection Suite from your system upon detection.
