Personal Defender 2009 is a malware disguised as a security tool. This is not a new way to trick people and gain a purchase, but Personal Defender 2009 uses additional misleading tactics to make things work.

PersonalDefender2009 is not able to infect computers on its own; instead, it tricks people into downloading the program voluntarily. PersonalDefender 2009 is delivered by trojan mupd1_2_1711951.exe. The trojan mimics Windows Firewall notifications and asks if user wants to enable protection. By clicking "Enable Protection" people actually allow the trojan to install Personal Defender 2009.

Once Personal Defender 2009 gets on a computer, it starts offering paid version of the software. It might appear to be legitimate anti-spyware, but it is nonfunctional. Do not pay for the full version, unless you want to support malware creators. PersonalDefender 2009 imitates system scan and reports large numbers of infections found on board. Every message generated by PersonalDefender2009 can be ignored because they are all falsified.

Not only Personal Defender 2009 is useless as antispyware, but it is also malicious. It slows down system performance and limits internet connection. It displays many pop-ups that make using a computer an impossible task. PersonalDefender 2009 is also capable of hijacking web browser and redirecting it to personaldefender2009.com or defender-review.com. Related files: sdcfg.dat

Won't be surprised if this hits the news.
I have the same popups, with the windows firewall icon, on a windows xp, finally found some of the start up programs and got them stopped, but still cant find anything that will get rid or find this. Never did the install, but seems it got far enough to make my life miserable.
