In case you can’t boot your PC in Safe Mode with Networking or you can’t delete the malicious files manually, you can use this code SL55J-T54YHJ61-YHG88 and any email to register the rogue application in order to stop the fake security alerts.

Once this is done, you are free to install anti-malware software and remove the rogue anti-virus program from your computer properly. If you need help in removing Security Protection from your computer, please leave a comment below. Additional information about this malware and comments are welcome too.
