Why is Protective Antivirus 2015 considered dangerous?

It modifies your Windows Registry so that the fake anti-virus program would be launched automatically once you turn on the computer. Shortly after this, it will initiate a system scan. It will surely detect a few “dangerous” items like Backdoor:Win32.Scrab.p and Backdoor:Hackdef.Y. Sure, these are the names of actual infections, but there is a very low possibility that there viruses have actually attacked your PC. You see, the fake security tool cannot detect any viruses. Actually, it does a lot of harm by itself. Firstly, it may block .exe files. Secondly, it can show a lot of fake pop-up warning that tell you about supposed viruses that inhabit your personal computer. A message can look like this: “Security Warning. Malware program has been detected. Click here to protect your computer”. After clicking one of the pop-ups, you will soon realize that the application is not free of charge. In order for it to “delete the infections”, you have to pay $129.99. Surely, this will not help you in any way. By trying to buy the application, you will not only spend $129.99: once the hackers get your banking details, they may steal even more money.
