ScreenshotSpyware Protection 2010 is rogue software that detects errors on your system that don't exist for the purpose of directing you towards Spyware Protection 2010's website. Any information or money transferred through this site is entirely unsafe and in criminal hands. Deleting Spyware Protection 2010 is a necessity for keeping your computer secure, since the rogue product is able to disable most programs, reduce or entirely eliminate your computer security, and may cause other problems to boot.

Spyware Protection 2010 Malware-Riddled Beginnings

Made available by brute force infiltration since 2010, Spyware Protection 2010 has been promoted mostly by Trojans and other stealth-oriented malware. This has allowed Spyware Protection 2010 to infect computers across wireless networks, through removable hard drives, and even through advertising and compromised software updates.

It's likely that your security software, if you have any to begin with, will have Spyware Protection 2010 in its definitions, making catching the infection before Spyware Protection 2010 acts a non-issue. Thus, Spyware Protection 2010 is only truly a problem for people who download Spyware Protection 2010 by mistake and people who are on the Internet without any appropriate protective software running.

Spyware Protection 2010 Warning Signs

Spyware Protection 2010's hostility and invasiveness give many different and easily-justified reasons for removing Spyware Protection 2010 quickly if it's on your computer. Some of these actions are general to similar types of malware, but others place Spyware Protection 2010 a bit higher on the threat list than the average rogue scanner. One eternally applicable truth for Spyware Protection 2010 is that the worst thing you can do is purchase Spyware Protection 2010 through its self-promoted website. This will immediately give not only your money but all information involved in the digital transaction to hackers, and serious consequences are virtually inevitable. Even in the short term, just having Spyware Protection 2010 and not attempting to interact with Spyware Protection 2010 will produce some or all of the following issues.

  • Your registry will contain alterations, especially ones inclined towards automatically running malware like Spyware Protection 2010 in a normal Windows boot mode.
  • Frequent and falsified error messages will occur. Spyware Protection 2010 uses these messages to inform you of Spyware Protection 2010's (fake) usefulness and give you a reason to purchase it.
  • System resources such as RAM and hard drive space will be used heavily. Spyware Protection 2010 may use these resources to download malware besides itself, or Spyware Protection 2010 may simply use them up to slow down your computer and induce panic.
  • Spyware Protection 2010 may also hijack your browser, redirecting it to Spyware Protection 2010's own website through additional fake error messages or other means.
  • Spyware Protection 2010 has been reported to disable firewalls in some instances. This allows remote attackers to gain control over your computer and leaves your system open to any malware that targets it
  • .

  • Worst of all, Spyware Protection 2010 or malware aligned with it can shut down virtually any processes or programs the hackers want shut down. In extreme instances, almost everything save for Internet Explorer has been reported to be debilitated, with the browser excepted solely for its ability to transfer money from the victim to the hackers.

Timely reaction and the use of a true virus scanner to combat the fraud Spyware Protection 2010 will generally allow your computer to escape with minimal or no damage. Having updated security software is strongly encouraged, since deleting Spyware Protection 2010 alone will usually leave attendant malware that may simply re-infect your system with Spyware Protection 2010 a second time over.

    Thank you so much!!!!

  • Vince999 says:

    Spyware Protection will not let you do anything once it is installed - you cant even run task manager to stop it
    What I did was
    1) restart in SAFE mode
    2) went to the start menu, right clicked the Spyware protection icon and selected properties
    It turned out to be a file in the user's roaming folder
    3) I navigated to that folder, right clicked the file and ran AVIRA against it.
    Avira duly detected the trojan and dealt with it (but no idea why it didn't stop it in the first place)
    After I restarted, I was back to normal - although I'm well aware that there are still bits of Software Protection left around
    (Not my computer, user wanted it back)

    Guys, thank you so much for helping me to remove this nasty piece of malware.i was in a real bind this morning but I found your blogg and resolved the problem. I still don't understand why my Mcafee didn't pick this up, but thanks again for the resolution

  • Thomas says:

    Because McAfee sucks

  • Jody says:

    I have mcafee too and it didnt pick it up either....so im about to see what this spyhunter will do for me....

  • Jeff says:

    Didn't see those exact files but removed Registry line ending defender .exe, shortcut referring to the defender file, and file in application data named defender and problem seems to be resolved; at least i can now run msconfig and task manager again normally and I don't have that nasty icon in my notification area (Windows XP)

    My computer freezes, stops working,doesn\'t turn on sometimes.I know exactly why, my norton security suite catches OVER 50 different websites trying to hack me. I play the mmorpg game popular, called runescape, it is copyrightes, ive been playing for years im 100% sure it\'s not runescape, but anyways i have plenty of room on my hard drive but its like a wall, when u hit it the other side still shakes. when norton blocks the websites they still manage to get me frozen and give MAJOR lag. I would smack the S**t out of these nerds who are hacking if i knew them. Anyways please tell me a way on how to stop this. Symptoms- Freezes if not used in 5 minutes
    -it works on 1 file and after use of about 10 minutes nothing else opens up
    -after trying to open up something computer freezes resulting in a reboot
    -in a 4 hour computer session i reboot my computer more than 10x
    i have a windows XP compaq presario 2005 (i know its old but works great until now)
    im not going to buy a new computer unless it crashes cause i know its fixable

    best regards,
    Ehsan M- please try to contact me on my unpublified email ASAP about this thanks.
