How do I get rid of the Win 7 Protection 2013 Alert virus? (I’m writing on my uninfected laptop). I have received the Win7 Protection 2013 Unregistered Version alert, i am sure it is not real but fake AV! As I didn’t install this thing on my work computer and it pops up this morning weirdly. It states this software has blocked a program from accessing the internet, can you help me disable this warning?
Win 7 Protection 2013 – Unregistered Version Description
The Win 7 Protection 2013 Alert virus is an anti-spyware attach that infects the computers of users that carelessly click on links and downloads that contain the virus, or when an email attachment is opened that contains this attack. Like XP Protection 2013, Vista Protection 2013, it comes from the same rogue family. The virus does two things, first it begins to install and attack the system settings, really slowing down the CPU and making normal operations appear to be very sluggish. The second thing this virus does is to display a fake virus scan, which shows the users the results upon completion, alerting them that there has been several threats detected on the computer and they need to be removed and deleted immediately.
If the user then instructs the virus scan to delete the infected and dangerous files it will then state that the software is not up to date and needs to be upgraded to the newest version in order for it to work. Obviously this is a fake scan and results, and the hackers are just after one thing, and that is the credit card details of the user. Not only will they charge the user for an “upgrade” that doesn’t really exist, but also they will then have access to their credit card number and can use it to commit additional fraud, or they will sell it to other cyber criminals groups oversea that will then use it to make fraudulent purchases. Regardless of what they do with it, it will not be good and can be very difficult to clean up the mess that they will cause.
The scan that the Win 7 Protection 2013 Alert virus displays when the PC is started up looks exactly like a real scan, and the layout is almost an identical copy of the leading virus scanning programs that come standard on the Windows based operating systems. The average user is going to associate the fake scan with the legitimate software and believe the message and “update” by paying the money. They will get scared when they see all of the attacks and threats that the results list and will want to get the system cleaned up quickly, as the upgrade price is a much smaller price to pay rather than having to pay for computer repairs if the viruses attack.
