Protegent Antivirus' "Yes" refers to a still image of a 3D-animated man experiencing computer issues taken from a 2016 commercial for Protegent Antivirus. The image, captioned "Yes," has been used online as a reaction, with the implied meaning of "yes" often being "many" or "every single one."
On September 9th, 2016, Indian software company Unistal uploaded a commercial for its antivirus software Protegent to YouTube (original commercial removed, reupload shown below). In the animated commercial, a mustached man wearing an orange suit experienced computer issues, with Protegent mascot Proto recommending him to use the software.
