How to Remove TR/BProtector.Gen2 (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
TR/BProtector.Gen2 is a Trojan horse that can download and install adware and potentially unwanted programs on your computer, take Optimizer Pro and ADWARE/bProtect.D, for instance. The detection routine was developed a month ago which means that this specific infection is new. Damage potential is low, however, distribution potential remains pretty high. Once installed, this Trojan horse will download and install addition adware and spyware components on your computer in the background without your permission and knowledge. It will then use rundll32.exe and other Windows system programs to finish the installation. Network traffic will increase significantly because usually this Trojan horse downloads multiple setup.exe files for different adware and PUPs and later connects to third-party servers to confirm successful installations. What is more, TR/BProtector.Gen2 installs malicious web browser extensions that can inject ads into pretty much any web page you visit and also display pop-up ads on your computer.

TR/BProtector.Gen2 detection
This Trojan horse is promoted through the use of fake Flash Player update websites and dodgy software download sites. It also comes bundled with other programs, mostly PUPs, toolbars, freeware and similar programs. TR/BProtector.Gen2 is pretested as an option software package or a special offer. It may even have a valid digital signature and of course it will be presented as a very useful tool that enhance your web browse capabilities. And indeed, some programs that this Trojan comes bundled with may be useful. However, considering the price you will have to pay for it later, I suggest to decline such software "offers". Unless, of course, you want to be flooded with never ending pop-ups ads and browser redirects to misleading websites.

It's very important to understand that this infection is usually installed together with other malware. In other words, if you've detected this infection on your computer then there's a good chance that your PC or laptop is infected with even more adware and PUPs or spyware. The first thing you should do is obviously get rid if TR/BProtector.Gen2. This can be done manually, but I recommend using anti-malware programs. Besides, since there's probably more than one adware/malware infection on your computer running full anti-malware scan is very important. Sadly, but most anti-virus programs cannot properly detect and remove this infection from the system. That's why I recommend anti-malware programs. To remove this Trojan horse from your computer, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Good luck and be safe online!
