Some computer security specialists label AnyProtect as adware, but we are more likely to consider it a potentially unwanted program. It means that it is not a dangerous computer security threat, but if you are concerned with your system safety, you should remove AnyProtect from the PC as soon as possible. Some users might be confused about whether AnyProtect is useful or not. It is true that this program should secure your data online, creating an individual backup space on the Internet. However, the application is also related to a variety of security issues, and thus you should get rid of it immediately.
One of the reasons users might be inclined to trust AnyProtect is that the program has an official website at anyprotect.com, and it looks like a decent computer application. After all, who would not want a full data backup? Nevertheless, if you want to back up your files, you should choose something else than AnyProtect. This program has a lot of bad reviews, and users often complain about it, so there is no reason to keep it on your computer. If you do not find the application useful, uninstall AnyProtect from the PC right now.
As it has been mentioned in the previous paragraph, AnyProtect seems reliable because it has an official homepage. However, we have to make an assumption that the homepage is not the main distribution link. Just like the most of potentially unwanted applications, AnyProtect often spreads all over the internet in bundled downloads. Based on our research, AnyProtect arrives with VuuPC remote desktop client and VOPackage adware downloader. ClickMeIn Limited publishes all the programs, so it is not surprising that they travel in a pack.
This program may also arrive with other third party applications. It is known to be run by ironSource, and this software distributor often delivers extensions and toolbars. Technically, extensions, toolbar and adware are not dangerous per se. However, freeware apps can be exploited by malicious third parties to promote their content.
AnyProtect will take up your system resources, and it is very unlikely that it will provide you with useful services. If you did not want to have it on your computer, or you have no idea where AnyProtect came from, you need to delete it from the system. Open Control Panel and uninstall AnyProtect manually.
After manual removal, you should scan your PC with a computer security application that will help you detect other unwanted programs (you are bound to have more). Invest in a malware removal and detection tool to get rid of all of the potential threats. Make sure you protect your PC from harm.
