How to Remove Mac Protector Virus

The Mac Protector virus is another fake utility application which targets Mac operating system users, this virus aims to infect Mac computers in order to try to trick their users into sending their money over to its creators. Once you will unfortunately visit a hacked website or get an infected photo, the virus will redirect you to a website where a threat scanner will start to run. After the scanner, a report will be presented to you informing of your computer’s dire situation. The virus will the take the initiative of downloading the virus into your computer for you.

Once the download finishes, the Mac Protector virus will ask you to install the virus yourself and afterwards, it will run another scanner to look for malicious files on your system. It will then report to you that it has found malicious files in your computer, however, if you will want to clean the infections, you will be asked to purchase the full version of the Mac Protector scam utility first. After the first update, the Mac Protector virus will begin to update itself informing you that your computer is at risk because of the infections and that you need to purchase the license to the full version of their product. You should never purchase their products and if you did send them your credit card information, you should immediately contact your credit card provider to dispute your purchase and see if you were charged by the scam utility.The Mac Protector malware is also smart enough to add itself on your account’s login items so that it will keep on running as soon as you login to your Mac. This malware also does not have a Dock, and this is why you need to go through the termination process before you can remove it from your computer.
