Online users, we currently do not recommend purchasing the so-called anti-virus software called PC Protect from www.pcprotect.com for your PC or mobile device. The PC Protect software does not allow visitors to download and try their software. Therefore, there is no way to find out what you are getting or if you are getting something until you have purchased the so-called anti-virus software. But, by then, the untrustworthy people who maybe cyber criminals or scammers would have already stolen your credit card and personal information, and may have infected your computer or mobile device with a virus, spyware or other malware.

All legitimate antivirus software makers allow potential users to try their software by allowing them to see what they are getting before purchasing. And, it is not recommended to buy antivirus software that is not well-known because cyber criminals can create a fake and fraudulent website and claim they are selling their own antivirus software and lure their potential victims to it. Once visitors to the fake and fraudulent website attempt to purchase the fake antivirus software on the website, they would have unknowingly sent their credit card and personal information to the cybercriminals operating the fake website. The cyber criminals would then use the stolen information fraudulently.

The same visitors may also infect their computers or mobile devices with a virus, ransomware, spyware or other malware when they purchase and download fake antivirus software that steals sensitive information and sends it to cyber criminals, destroy sensitive information on the infected computers, or lock or encrypt files and demand a ransom to unlock or decrypt them.

Remember, your antivirus is one of the most important pieces of software on their computer or mobile device, so it is critical that you download and install only a well-known and trusted one. If you are need help deciding what antivirus software to use, ask a trusted friend or family member who you know is tech-savvy or familiar with computers.

Online users who have already used their credit card on the untrustworthy website (pcprotect.com) are asked to let their banks cancel the transactions and refund their money. And, should ensure that other fraudulent charges are not being made to their credit cards. If there are, they need to contact their banks for help.

    They certainly tried to get into my computer and as I opened another tab, their website kept on popping up. I contacted them and they stated they found several threats to my system, and at which time I removed all cookies and blocked their intrusion into my computer. Dean, my so-called account manager, continues to send emails to me lying about his anti-virus protection. He claims his anti-virus engine runs on over 500 million unique devices. Stay away from this company.
