Moved to Malware Discussions > Home User Assistance.

Windows Protection Suite is one of those fake antimalware suites that one gets entangled with by clicking something unwisely.

There is an excellent removal guide here:

Scroll down that page as the first links you see are all advertising.

Once that is dealt with you should then remove your old McAfee Internet Suite before installing Total Protection.

Uninstall it in the normal manner via Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs (XP), Programs/Uninstall a Program (Vista/Windows 7)

Run the MCPR removal tool listed under this link:


Install your new suite.
