Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 Virus – Removal Instructions
Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 is a Fakerean/Braveax species of computer virus, and it is one of various different types of Zorton viruses aimed at computers running one of the many Windows-based operating systems. Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 specifically targets PCs running the Windows 7 version of Windows. The Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 virus can be contracted in a number of ways, many of which can be prevented by keeping one’s firewall up to date and simply being aware of the dangers. Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 is contracted by, either, 1) downloading material from sites with questionable reputations, or 2) opening up e-mails from unknown sources.
A PC user should never download any kind of material from any website that is not secure. Websites that are not secure include, but are not limited to, file share sites, illegally hosted sites, and different kinds of forums. Forums are included because forum members may post materials that are downloadable which can have the Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 virus attached. Furthermore, a Windows user should not open up any e-mail when they don’t know who the sender is, because the Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 virus, as well as many others, could be attached to such an e-mail.
Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014, once contracted, will immediately begin to make changes to the infected PC’s registry. These changes will allow the virus to make sure that it is the only accessible program while the computer is running, and it will become very difficult for the user to open other programs. Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 pretends that it is a Windows Corporation computer protection software, and it will run a fake computer “scan” every time that the program opens up.
After scanning, Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 will pretend that there are hundreds of viruses and malware infecting the PC, and it will ask the PC user to pay a massive charge in order to complete the software so that the problems can be destroyed. In reality, there are usually no problems on the user’s computer at all, and the only goal of the creators of Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 is to obtain payment info from various users. As long as Zorton Win 7 Protection 2014 is on one’s PC, the computer’s speed will continue to become slower as the virus makes more changes to the computer’s registry, and the virus will also pop up and run “scans” more often.
