AdProtect is a program that claims to operate as an anti-spyware, though on further investigation it appears to be a rogue application. It get installed on systems bypassing the defenses and acts as a reliable tool. At least, at the start. The tool itself initiates a fake malware scan, which unfailingly ends in a number of security alerts. These notifications are generated and have nothing in common with real situation – AdProtect detects system problems and malware issues even on new machines. The developers of AdProtect suppose to scare users and persuade them to buy a full version of the application, so that the problems could be solved.
