PC Privacy Defender is a bogus spyware remover, fake anti-spyware application. Like many other similar rogue anti-spyware applications, PC Privacy Defender is also installed without user permission or knowledge through the use of trojan viruses or fake advertisements on various malicious websites. The main objective of this parasite is to scare the user into purchasing PCPrivacyDefender.

Once PC PrivacyDefender is installed and active, it performs various misleading actions. Firstly, it runs fake system scan and reports bogus results mainly about spyware and malware infections. Then the rogue promotes a licensed version of this totally worthless software. It displays rogue security alerts and pop-up windows with information about security problems and privacy issues. PC Privacy Defender is a fraud. It must be removed from the system immediately after detection. Removal delay will only worsen the situation, because the rogue can download additional malware. Please use manual removal guide stated below to completely remove PC Privacy Defender.
