How to Remove Badware Protector

Badware Protector is yet another rogue antispyware program that is out to steal your money and harm your computer. It usually infiltrates computers through Trojan horse programs or holes in the web browser. Though it claims to help protect computers, it does nothing to remove any real threats or prevent them from invading the system.

If left on a computer, Badware Protector will seriously hinder that computer’s performance. It will slow the Internet connection, cause pop-ups, and change browser settings. It may also download other malware.

Badware Protector file contents :

BadwareProtector_log.txt,
ieupdates.exe,
bp.exe,
protector.exe,
backup.lst,
helper.sys,
pn.cfg,
spyware.dat,
krln32.exe,
scvh0st.exe

In order to manually remove Badware Protector from your computer, you should first stop the following processes:

protector.exe
bp.exe
ieupdates.exe
krln32.exe
scvh0st.exe

You should then delete the following registry values:

HKEY_USERS\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\”Badware Protector” = “C:\Program Files\BadwareProtector\badwareprotector.exe”
HKEY_USERS\Software\BadwareProtector
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\BadwareProtector
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BadwareProtector
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{74f25a2c-22b3-4023-8f1a-ca616c30a8b5}\
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{D714A94F-123A-45CC-8F03-040BCAF82AD6}\
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Run “Protector”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Run “BadwareProtector”

Finally, you should delete the following files:

protector.exe
bp.exe
ieupdates.exe
BadwareProtector_log.txt
backup.lst
helper.sys
pn.cfg
spyware.dat
krln32.exe
scvh0st.exe

This should effectively remove Badware Protector from your computer. However, this will not remove the Trojan that downloaded it in the first place, nor will it get rid of any other malware that may be residing in your system.
