Strong Malware Defender. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as Strong MalwareDefender, StrongMalwareDefender | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12

Strong Malware Defender is a rogue anti-spyware program that displays completely bogus scan results and misleading security alerts. The main goal of this rogue program is to extort money from unaware computer users. It is mostly promoted through the use of Trojans that pretend to be flash player updates and fake online virus scanners. Strong Malware Defender may be dropped onto the compromised computer by Trojans and other malware as well. Once installed, the program will state that your computer is infected with Trojans, keyloggers and dangerous malware but won't remove the infections until you first purchase it. Thankfully, you can ignore fake scan results as the rogue program detects harmless files that do not pose any risk to your computer and personal information.

While running, Strong Malware Defender will also display fake security alerts and pop-ups on your Desktop and from the task bar. These fake alerts will state that active malware has been found and that your sensitive information can be stolen, credit card number, passwords and similar information. It will also state that your computer is under attack from a remote computer controlled by a group of hackers. Just like the scan results, these fake warnings should be ignored. Strong Malware Defender wants to make you think that your computer is badly infected and that you should pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections which don't even exist. Providing a false sense of security is not what a good anti-spyware program should do.

It goes without saying that Strong Malware Defender is nothing more but scam. Don't pay for it. If you have already purchased the program, then please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Finally, please follow the remove instructions below to remove Strong Malware Defender and any associated malware from your computer as soon as you can.
