Digital Protection Malware virus

There is a new major malware virus going around right now. This one is “Digital Protection” and infects computers after the user gets one of those pop-ups that says “You have a virus!”

The odd thing about this one is that it’s also taking over the Windows Updater program, so it can’t be used to download new security patches and fixes from Microsoft.

It’s also loading itself multiple times into the Windows registry. Below are step by step instructions on how to remove it.

This is a nasty removal process so if you’re not familiar with editing the Windows registry, I highly suggest you take this somewhere professional.
