Major Defense Kit. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as MajorDefenseKit | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12
Major Defense Kit is a fake antivirus program that is promoted through misleading advertisements on infected websites or through the use of Trojan downloaders and other malware. Once installed, the program will be set to run when you start your computer. While running, Major Defense Kit will pretend to scan your PC and then display numerous infections, such as spyware, adware and Trojans. It will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections. In reality, though, it won't remove any infections even if you purchase it. That's because MajorDefenseKit is a virus itself and it reports non-existent infections on your computer. It goes without saying that you should remove Major Defense Kit from the computer as soon as possible. Please follow the removal instructions below.

Major Defense Kit is from the same family as Red Cross Antivirus, Peak Protection 2010 and Pest Detector 4.1. Recently, this rogue program is being promoted through the use of the fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert. Major Defense Kit will also display pop-ups stating that your computer is under attack or that you have some security risk. The rogue program will block task manager and registry editor. It will disable system restore, safe mode and won't let you visit certain security related websites. Without a doubt, this fake program was created with only one goal - to trick users into paying for a full version of MajorDefenseKit. Please don't purchase it. Instead, please follow Major Defense Kit removal instructions below. We strongly recommend you to use an automatic removal tool to remove this virus and any related malware from your computer.

I had tis virus and after not being on my computer for a week or two i turned it on and it seems to have deleted itself as it no longer does the scanning process it once did nor does it block me from getting on. is that possible?

i would recommend just wiping and reloading your operating system to be sure that you removed all that is needed for your computer to run proper.
