removal by - -   Also known as PCDefenderAntivirus | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12
PC Defender Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware program that reports false or exaggerated security threats to make you think that your computer is infected with malware. Once installed, the rogue program prompts to purchase a license of PC Defender Antivirus to remove non-existent threats or infections. It goes without saying that you should remove PC Defender Antivirus from your computer upon detection. PC Defender Antivirus is usually promoted through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners and other misleading websites. When installed, the rogue program will display fake security alerts claiming that your PC is under attack or that is seriously infected with adware, spyware and other viruses. These fake security alerts look like those legitimate from Widows Security Center. This parasite may also impersonate Windows Security Center and report that anti-virus protection is disabled.

While running, PC Defender Antivirus will run fake system scan and display a variety of infections that can't be removed unless you first purchase the program. The scan results are false; do not purchase PC Defender Antivirus because it won't help you. This is nothing more but a scam. Instead, you should uninstall PCDefenderAntivirus form your PC immediately because it will likely download additional malware on to your computer. What is more, it will block antivirus programs and hijack Internet browsers. As a result, you will be redirected to various unrealated and misleading websites full of advertisements. If you find that your computer is infected with this virus, please use the removal guide to remove PC Defender Antivirus manually for free or with an automatic removal tool.
