Do NOT purchase VirusProtect 3.9 under any circumstances since it is a fake anti-spyware software.

Are you getting popups from VirusProtect? Have you identified that you have VirusProtect installed on your computer? Do you wish to remove VirusProtect completely from your computer?

Why should you remove VirusProtect?

If VirusProtect resides on your computer, it can potentially damage your personal files or you may end up losing data stored on your system. Research has shown that VirusProtect may have the ability to make your computer vulnerable to remote attacks which could result, initially, in loss of money, possibly identity theft, and, eventually, a painstaking VirusProtect removal process.

How can you manually remove VirusProtect

Manual removal of VirusProtect may not be for everyone. Each manual VirusProtect removal step must be followed delicately to completely remove all related files and registry entries from your computer. If you are unsure or have doubts about editing your system registry, then we recommend that you use the automatic VirusProtect removal process.

VirusProtect can be removed manually by following the steps below.

  1. With all programs closed, click the Start Menu and go to the Control Panel.
  2. Locate the Add/Remove Programs icon and double click it.
  3. Locate VirusProtect in the list of programs. If you find it, select it and remove it. If you cannot find VirusProtect, you can continue to step 5.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Close all open programs and windows on your desktop.
  6. Open your registry editor (regedit) program by going to Start Menu, type in regedit, and click OK.
  7. Find all of the following registry entries and delete them. If you do not know how to do this, then you can read how to edit the registry in Windows.
