Remove System Progressive Protection Rogueware (Uinstall Guide)

System Progressive Protection is one of the most destructive and wild-spread rogueware recently. It is a fake antivirus program that pretends to be legitimate program and claims to scan your computer for malware. It displays fake security alerting and tries to scare you into purchasing the fake antivirus program. Once settled on your computer, System Progressive Protection changes your system settings, disables your anti-virus program as well as hijacks your browser. What’s more, you are not allowed to turn off the rogueware. It appears on your computer as shown in following screenshot:



As you see in the screenshot, System Progressive Protection performs a scan and alerts you that your computer is infected with various Trojans, worms, and spyware. Actually, the alerting message is not true. If you click to remove the infections, you are asked to pay a certain amount of money. Please never pay money to scammers; it will not help you to solve your computer problem.


System Progressive Protection is very annoying that it ruins your internet life. When you try to open your browser and visit a certain website, you will get warning message, and when you try to upload or download some program, you will also get warning message like following:


Warning! The site you are trying visit may harm your computer!

Your security setting level puts your computer at risk!

Activate System Progressive Protection, and enable safe web surfing (recommended).

Ignore warnings and visit that site in the current stat (not recommended).



To protect itself, System Progressive Protection will also prohibit running of any programs you attempt and will state that they are infected. It so, you are unable to run any security or anti-virus programs that can assist in its removal. The message that you will see when it terminates a program, like this:



Application cannot be executed. The file GoogleUpdate.exe infected.
