What is Malware Protection Live?
Users get exposed to potentially unwanted applications far often than they think. Take Malware Protection Live, for example. This program may look like one of the best antispyware solutions out there, but during our tests, we have found it is not exactly functional. Question: why do you keep it on your computer then? Perhaps you have no idea how this program entered your system? Whichever it might be, it is your duty to remove Malware Protection Live from your computer because such unwanted applications can easily lead to severe computer security issues. Take the matter of your PC’s security into your hands.
Where does Malware Protection Live come from?
This program has an official website. Anyone can access the page at malwareprotectionlive.com. When you open the website, you are greeted with a sleek design and a color scheme that is good for the eyes. There is nothing that would give away this program is not reliable. It is even possible to download the application directly.
In the website, you can also find a list of benefits you may have if you decide to install Malware Protection Live on your computer. For example, it says that the application offers “realtime file system scanning.” As the program “operates in the background and automatically detects changes to your computer,” you no longer need to “run lengthy, manual scans.” Also, the program supposedly offers “protection for your browsers,” because it “scans browser extensions and add-ons as well as downloaded files.”
If you are wondering how this program manages to cover such a wide range of security measures, it has an answer for that, too. Apparently, the program employs “herd immunity,” as it “identifies new threats and suspicious activity through cloud-sourced data collection and analysis.”
However, disregarding of what the official website might say, the truth is that the program is potentially unwanted. What’s more, the official homepage is clearly not the only source of distribution. The program may also come from third-party sources in software packages. For instance, you may have downloaded some codec recently, and it might have come from a third-party website. If you did not pay attention to the installation steps, you might have allowed Malware Protection Live into your computer.
What does Malware Protection Live do?
As you can tell from the features listed on the official website, this application should be very effective in ensuring your system’s stability. Unfortunately, that is not something we noticed during our tests. When we installed this program on one of our test machines, we had it infected with malware, but Malware Protection Live did not detect anything out of the ordinary. The program only notified us that it would move particular Firefox extension to quarantine, but even so, we found the quarantine folder empty when we opened it. Hence, it would not be too far-fetched to say that the program certainly does not live up to the expectations.
What’s more, Malware Protection Live is known to add registry keys that trace your activity. This is not mentioned anywhere in the program’s setup, so these modifications could be used to track your online activity. Consequently, the information on your web browsing habits could be used for many different purposes. The bottom line is that such information sharing with third parties is not safe, and you should not keep a program that does that. That is why, with this description, we also present removal instructions that will tell you how to get rid of Malware Protection Live.
How do I remove Malware Protection Live?
Luckily, this program tries to pass for a decent computer security tool, so it does not plague your system with countless files and registry entries that are hard to delete. You can uninstall Malware Protection Live via Control Panel, and that should be enough to terminate all the files associated with the application.
However, that might not be the end of it because the third-party installer could have installed more programs on your system. And you most certainly have to take care of them as well, especially if you did not plan on having them.
Scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner, and you will get a list of all the potential threats that are hiding in your system. Then, please be sure to terminate them all with a legitimate antispyware tool.
