Protection Bar - Keeping You From Your Computer

If you've noticed a new toolbar when you open Internet Explorer, the chances are pretty good that you're in a relationship you don't want to be a part of - one involving Protection Bar, an adware product that clogs your system processes, slows things down, and helps give you those annoying popup advertisements you just can't seem to get rid of.

What is Protection Bar?

Protection Bar is adware that allows a third party to watch your internet habits and send you advertisements for products they think you might be willing to buy. Simply put - it's another annoying popup creator that can make your web experiences miserable ones. It suggests that it will help protect you from nasty spyware and viruses that you might get while browsing online, but the truth of the matter is that it is part of the problem. Clicking anywhere on the toolbar can only lead to the download of other files and problematic software, and just having it on your  machine allows it to control what you see and when.

What Might I Notice With Protection Bar?

If indeed you do have Protection Bar on your machine, you are likely to notice a number of things that weren't part of your computer before. First, you may notice a new toolbar whenever you try to browse the net. It may have buttons on it like "Remove Adware Popups, "Security Scan," and "Spam Protection." Clicking on any one of these buttons will install additional programs on your machine, so your first step is not to touch it. The second thing you might notice with Protection Bar installed on your machine is that your default home page has changed. The chances are pretty good that it's now something related to anti-spyware software, though different users report having different home pages once the program has been installed on the machine. You may also notice constant security notifications coming from your machine. They will suggest that you have a spyware problem, and scanning it with the full version of Protection Bar will solve the problem for you. You will, of course, have to pay a fee for the full version, and once you have paid the fee, you will get very little in the way of protection. Popups are another sure sign of Protection Bar. Most of them are related to other fake antispyware programs, but several of them are also part of affiliate advertisers, and clicking on them could cause additional adware to download itself on your machine. The final feature you may notice with Protection Bar is a general slowdown of your system. Protection Bar creates a registry  key when it installs on your computer. This means that it starts when you start the machine, so while you don't know that several programs are already running on your machine when you go about your business, there are, leaving your machine overloaded, and you frustrated with its lack of speed.

How Did I Get Protection Bar?

The chances are pretty good that you got Protection Bar on your own. It can be difficult to say exactly how it might have happened. In many cases, it may have been attached to another download. In other cases, people report clicking on a popup that prompted them about new settings needed to view a site. Still, other people actually download it thinking that it may protect them from harm. Little do they know that it will actually cause problems on the system.

What Happens If I Work With Protection Bar?

Using Protection Bar as a software program to protect your computer isn't a good idea. Should you click on any one of the functions on the bar, you'll be taken to a web page that looks official enough. It will ask you about the problems your having, but the real issue here is that Protection Bar is causing the problems that you're dealing with in the first place. Any option that you select will prompt you to install additional adware or spyware on your machine that simply won't do the job needed to get rid of the program.

How Can I Remove Protection Bar?

Removing Protection Bar isn't as easy as it should be. You can try the old trick of heading to the add/remove programs control panel, but most users report that it just doesn't work like it should. One of two things will happen should you try to get rid of it that way. First, nothing will happen. After it pretends to go through the uninstallation process, you'll notice that it's not gone. Second, it will pretend to uninstall, but a few days later, it will reappear on  your system because it has reinstalled itself on your machine. At any rate, this isn't the best option for Protection Bar removal.

Your next option to get rid of it is to manually delete all of the associated program files and registry keys that it creates. In this case, though, that's not a really good idea either. Manually deleting files on your own or working within your registry is just plain dangerous. It can seriously harm your machine and do far more damage than Protection Bar was doing in the first place.

Your final, and perhaps best, option is to install some safe anti-spyware software. Programs like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) work great. They identify the problem files on your computer and eliminate them both through the system files themselves and through the registry, helping to get rid of any traces of Protection Bar from your machine. Keep in mind, though, that there are lots of rogue programs claiming to be anti-spyware programs, so stick to the ones that are well-reviewed. Programs like this are an easy download, and they're sure to keep you computing happily for the next several months. Keep them updated, and run scans about once a week for best results.

Protect yourself from Protection Bar. You'll be glad you did.
