Protect yourself from VirusProtect Pro

While it may not be apparent on the surface, the Internet is a constant competition between hackers around the world; those who make viruses, adware, and spyware for a living, and the good guys who make software to recognize and stop the bad programs from taking over your computer. Unfortunately, it can be tough to tell the good programs from the difficult ones by the name, and in the case of VirusProtect Pro, you may not get what you expected.

What is VirusProtect Pro?

VirusProtect Pro is a program known as rogue anti-spyware. Rogue anti-spyware attempts to get you to download and purchase the full version of a program to fix the problems it suggests you have installed on your machine. They accomplish this goal by flooding your desktop with pop-up windows and computer scanning windows that tell you that your computer is infected with viruses, spyware, and malware. In almost all cases, these warnings and scans are not in any way, shape, or form accurate, so don't take them too seriously. Unfortunately, the only way to stop these pop-ups and scans from happening is if you remove this program entirely from your machine. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions.

What you might notice with VirusProtectPro

Rogue anti-spyware programs like VirusProtect Pro use several methods to attempt to entice you to download the full version of the program. The primary tool of the average rogue anti-spyware program is the pop-up window. What makes these pop-ups so difficult to ignore is the sheer volume of them, and the fact that they are designed to look exactly like the kind of warning notifications you get from Windows XP or Vista, or the kind you get from your average anti-virus program that is already on your computer.

Programs like VirusProtect Pro also use browser hijacks to accomplish their goals. A browser hijack happens when you point your browser in one direction, but it goes someplace else. This happens most often when people attempt to access their start page. They are often redirected to the home page for VirusProtect Pro, where they are greeted with a frightening message that their computer is at risk, and they need to pay for and download a full version of VirusProtect Pro right away to save their computer from thte listed viruses and malware.

Finally, you may notice a complete slow-down in the way your computer works. This is because programs like VirusProtect Pro run in the background of your machine from the time you turn your computer on to the time you turn it off. The only way to stop this from happening is to remove VirusProtectPro from your machine once and for all.

How did VirusProtectPro get there?

A program like VirusProtect Pro has several different ways of gaining access to your hard drive. The most common way is through a trial version of the software that you might have installed in an attempt to try out the program. You may also have come into contact with the program through a bundle of software that you recently installed. If you have recently installed a freeware or shareware program on your computer, there is a chance that VirusProtect Pro came with it. This is often done by freeware and shareware developers to help offset the cost of development and web hosting since their software alone doesn't cost the consumer anything. You might also have run into VirusProtect Pro through an email attachment. Never open email attachments that you aren't familiar with.

Removing VirusProtectPro

You can choose one of two options when it comes to removing this piece of software from your hard drive. You can download and install a trustworthy anti-spyware program like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) to do the job for you. This is probably the best, and the easiest choice. There are hundreds of trustworthy programs out there. Talk to friends and family members about their anti-spyware solutions. Research each suggestion carefully, then choose the right program for you. Simply download, install, and scan your computer. VirusProtectPro removal will be automatic from there. Be sure to update and scan your computer on a regular basis to prevent other similar program from appearing on your machine.

On the other hand, you can attempt a manual removal of the offending program yourself. Please note that manual removals of programs can be very dangerous. You are not only going through your hard drive and deleting files that can't be brought back, but you will also be asked to change your system registry, which can have catastrophic results if not done correctly. It is highly recommended that you back-up every file on your computer before you attempt any kind of manual removal of a program, and that includes backing up your system registry, just in case.

First, stop the following system process:


Next, delete the following .dll files:


Now, delete the following registry keys:


Finally, delete the following files:

VirusProtectPro 3.3.lnk
Uninstall VirusProtectPro 3.3.lnk
VirusProtectPro 3.3.url
VirusProtectPro 3.3 Website.lnk
