What is wprotectmanager.exe?

wprotectmanager.exe is a part of WpManager adware/PUP that modifies web browser settings and change default search provider and home page to its own, the most recent is called Nation Zoom. Multiple anti-virus scanners have detected this file file as malicious or potentially harmful, for example PUP.Optional.WpManager.A. Once installed, it creates a Windows process called wmp control that runs automatically every time Windows starts. This service prevents changes to Chrome and other web browser, so even if you try to restore browser settings manually, it will hijack your browser once again after you restart your computer. wprotectmanager.exe is digitally signed by Cherished Technology Limited. However, this doesn't change anything because it's simple a browser hijacker. Besides, it's not essential for Windows and may slow down your web browser or cause other problems. I recommend you to remove wprotectmanager.exe from your computer and run a full system scan with recommended anti-malware software.
