Windows Protection Tool looks like a malware and spyware removal tool. It contains icons typical of the products of Microsoft; however, the famous corporation has nothing to do with Windows Protection Tool. The computer program is a scam, whose only function is to inveigle you into registering the application, which, of course, cost money. Windows Protection Tool is as unreliable as Windows Protection Booster, Windows Antivirus Booster, Windows AntiBreach Helper, etc. The rogue program in question is attributed to the Rogue.VirusDoctor family; hence, do not even think of spending money on the fraudulent program. You should remove Windows Protection Tool from the system because this is the only way to regain access to the system.

By filling in the purchase form of the bogus application, you will provide your personal information to the remote attackers. Your credit card number, CVV number, home address, phone number and email may be used for identity theft.

In order to push you into purchasing the registration key, the fraudulent application disables executable files, restricts your access to the Internet and displays fake security warning informing you about the potential danger. You may think that the malfunctions, which you do not want to put up with, are causes by all those threats listed in the fake scanner. The truth is that Windows Protection Tool is the only one to blame for the experience that you have to go through. In order to protect the system from Trojans, worms, rootkits and other threats, you should replace Windows Protection Tool with a legitimate and reputable malware and spyware tool.

In order to remove Windows Protection Tool from the computer, first register it with the key provided below. After registering the application, you will regain access to the Internet and will be able to install a malware removal tool.
