Windows Protection Booster Removal Guide

Do you know what Windows Protection Booster is?

Windows Protection Booster is another rogue application which replaces such fake programs as Windows AntiVirus Booster and Windows AntiVirus Tool. Thus, you can expect them all to act very similarly. Firstly, they perform a fake scan after they get on your system and then provides you with fake results. Secondly, it tends to display various pop-ups, and third, it blocks the access to legitimate programs and documents. If you wonder why it is all done, the answer is very simple – to scare you into believing that your computer is infected with malicious software. You should not believe any word of Windows Protection Booster because it only seeks to extort money from you. As it is not going to do anything good, we believe that it is better to erase Windows Protection Booster entirely from the system.

It is not easy to say how Windows Protection Booster has come on your system. Actually, there are several ways: firstly, you might have opened a spam e-mail; secondly, you might have believed some kind of advertisement claiming that your system is infected and offering a tool to fix it.

Finally, it is also possible that already existing malware have attracted Windows Protection Booster on your system. In order to avoid similar unwanted applications in the future, it is extremely important to keep your antimalware tool enabled.
