Protection System Removal Instructions

Protection System is a rogue security program that uses shady methods for promoting itself. It has Trojans infect computers and then the Trojans will download the fake security app in a covert fashion without the user’s permission. Once it has infected a computer, it will begin to deliver security warnings with deceptive messages. The messages will either tell the user that their computer is infected or that it is being hacked and that malware is to blame.

Protection System will run every time the user logs into Windows. It will try to execute a phony computer scan when it first starts and when the security warnings are delivered. The scan only yields fake results and is a scare tactic to try to trick the user into paying for the full version of the program. However, the full version of Protection System is useless, powerless, and a waste of money.

If this program has infected your computer, then immediate removal is recommended. In order to remove it manually, you should kill the following processes:

psystem.exe
uninstall.exe

You should delete the following registry entries:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Protection System
