Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 looks like a reliable computer security application, but there is nothing legitimate about this program because it has been created by cyber criminals to swindle you out of your money. Technically, rogue antispyware applications are designed to look and behave like actual antivirus programs, but it’s an act devised to trick unsuspecting users into giving away their financial information. Therefore, you have to remove Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 from your computer immediately and then scan the entire system to search for other potential infections. Dangerous programs seldom travel alone.
It is easy to see why users often panic when Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 enters their computers. This rogue is very good at making the impression that the PC is severely infected with malware.

What is more, Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 blocks .exe extension files, which makes it virtually impossible to load any program, including your web browser.

We are perfectly acquainted with the bag of tricks used by Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014.
