Regain your privacy by saying goodbye to PrivacyProtector

If there is one concern we all have these days on the Internet, it is protecting our privacy. It seems that you can't watch the news these days without seeing stories about people having their identities stolen and all of the hassles that come with being a victim. That's why programs like PrivacyProtector end up with so many customers. Any program that claims that they can protect your most sensitive data is going to have a line of customers a mile long. However, it isn't until you have this program installed that you realize you were probably better off without it.

What is PrivacyProtector?

PrivacyProtector is known as a rogue drive cleaner application that claims to be able to protect you from all sorts of Internet viruses, spyware, adware and, malware. In reality, the program installs itself on your hard drive without your knowledge or permission, and sets off a tidal wave of pop-up ads and fake computer scan windows in an attempt to get you to purchase its full version for a hefty price. The fake computer scan windows will tell the user that they have dozens, sometimes even hundreds, of infected files on his or her machine. Unfortunately, these warnings are almost always false. The only way to get around PrivacyProtector is to uninstall it from your hard drive for good. Keep reading for step-by-step uninstall instructions.

What you might notice with PrivacyProtector

Programs like PrivacyProtector use annoying pop-up windows and fake computer scanning windows to try to convince you that you need the full version of the program or one of its associates. These windows can seriously slow your computer down, and in some cases, you may have to restart it in order to make it go away. The bad part is that, as soon as your computer comes back on, the pop-up windows start all over again. They can even interfere in your attempts to learn more about the program so you can remove it. Overall, these pop-up windows are a huge nuisance.

There are other common symptoms associated with PrivacyProtector, as well. You will likely notice a significant slow-down in the way your computer acts due to the presence of PrivacyProtector. This is because a program like PrivacyProtector is constantly running in the background from the time you turn your compute on to the time you turn it off, so when you try to run other programs, they take longer to respond because you have less free memory to use.

Finally, programs like PrivacyProtector use browser hijacks to try to get you to buy full versions of the programs they are selling. If your browser has been hijacked, you will notice that you are being redirected to websites that you never asked to visit. This happens most often when a user tries to access their start page, but it can occur at any time.

How did PrivacyProtector get there?

Programs like PrivacyProtector have many different ways of getting on your computer. You may have downloaded a trial version of PrivacyProtector in an attempt to try the program out to see if it was the right solution to meet your needs. You may also have had a small, ad-generating version of it installed on your computer as part of another download. Often times, freeware and shareware programs bundle other programs as part of their download to help offset the cost of development and web hosting. Programs like Kazaa, a popular music downloading program, were famous for doing this. You may also have gotten a small piece of this program installed on your computer from a predatory website. Make sure you change the settings on your computer to block any automatic software instillations from any website so this doesn't happen in the future.
