PC has been infected by a malware Called Protection System. It loads itself onto your hard drive, then startsup on bootup. It is a fake Firewall/Virus program & dispalys a window that looks like a Mircosoft Security Center that then informs you that it had detected a virus on your PC. If you click on the warning for more information, it takes you to a website that asks you to purchase the program. If that is not bad enough it then starts doing popup messages that says it is finding additional viruses on your PC.
I have comb through the PC & removed what I thought was all of the files that are associated with the program & removed any parts of it from the registery, & done a scan on the PC using Zone Alarm & found nothing.
THought that I cleared it all, but it has recreated itself again. So my threee questions are:
1) Has anyone else encountered this malware?
2) If yes, how did you remove it?
3) How can you prevent that malware from reloading itself after you have cleaned it, keeping in mind that Zone Alarm missed it in the 1st place?
