If you do not employ safe web browsing habits, sooner or later you could get infected with Zorton Win XP Protection 2014. It is a very cunning computer infection because it pretends to be a decent antivirus application. Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 boasts of a sophisticated user interface that makes the application look like the actual deal. Needless to say, there is nothing reliable about Zorton Win XP Protection 2014, and the sooner you remove it from your computer, the better. Do not forget that rogues seldom get distributed alone, so you most probably have other infections to worry about to.
We know exactly where Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 comes from because it is a direct clone of such infections as Rango Win 8 Antivirus 2014, Sirius Win XP Antispyware 2014, Win 7 Protection 2014, and many others. All these rogues belong to the Braviax family of chameleon infections. Fake antivirus programs from this group are known for changing their names according to your operating system. Thus, it is obvious that Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 appears on computers that run on Windows XP, but there are also versions of the same rogue targeted at computers with Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows 8. All these programs are the same, except for their names.
There are many ways for a rogue to enter your system, but once it is in, it exhibits a rather fixed behavioral pattern. First, Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 modifies Windows registry to auto-start with every system boot. Next, it launches a fake system scan. The scan results show that you are infected with Trojans, worms, backdoors and other types of malicious infections. Naturally, Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 cannot provide you with the accurate scan results, so there is no need to be alarmed about it. On the other hand, Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 also blocks you from accessing your executable files, consequently blocking you from launching your Internet browser.
The rogue says that your programs have to be blocked because they are infected with malware and they have to be killed in order to prevent the infection from spreading further. This is an obvious lie. Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 simply wants the users to believe that there is no other way out of this situation, but to purchase the full version of the program.
Naturally, there is no need to buy Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 because this is exactly what the program wants. What you have to do, however, is restart your computer in Safe Mode with Networing and get rid of Zorton Win XP Protection 2014 automatically. Please follow the instructions below to delete this rogue and protect your computer from similar infections.
