About this infection in short

Safari-protection.com is considered to be a browser hijacker that may install without your permission. Setup usually occurs by accident and oftentimes users aren’t even aware of how it happened. Browser intruders like to spread via freeware packages. A reroute virus is not considered to be malicious and thus shouldn’t do any direct damage.

You will gain nothing by keeping the browser hijacker. You should eliminate Safari-protection.com because it does not belong on your computer.
