That way, it's very easy to restore your system in the unfortunate event you encounter a 360SelfProtection.sys Blue Screen of Death error after recent changes.

Download 360SelfProtection.sys Files (Malware-Tested 100% Clean)

CAUTION : We strongly advise against downloading and copying 360SelfProtection.sys to your appropriate Windows system directory. Qihoo 360 Technology typically does not release 360 Total Security SYS files for download because they are bundled together inside of a software installer. The installer's task is to ensure that all correct verifications have been made before installing and placing 360SelfProtection.sys and all other SYS files for 360 Total Security. An incorrectly installed SYS file may create system instability and could cause your program or operating system to stop functioning altogether. Proceed with caution.
