Windows Defence Counsel is a rogue anti-spyware program that displays fake security alerts and pop-ups claiming that your computer is infected with malicious software. In other words, it just want to make you think that your computer is infected and then trick you into paying for a full version of the this bogus program in order to remove supposedly found malware infections or system security threats that actually do not even exist. Just like all other rogue programs, Windows Defence Counsel is promoted via Trojans and software vulnerabilities, or at least most of the time it's trojan downloaders that push this malware. Once installed, it will display fake security alerts and notifications from system tray claiming Windows Defence Counsel has detected some serious threats that can harm your computer. It may also claim that Trojan viruses can steal your passwords and even identity or delete files. Don't pay for this rogue anti-spyware program. Windows Defence Counsel is a scam and nothing more. Instead, please remove this rogue program from your computer upon detection using the removal guide below in combination with legitimate malware removal software. You can remove it either manually or with an automatic removal tool.

When running, Windows Defence Counsel may block some security websites and legitimate anti-virus software in order to protect itself from being removed. As for fake security alerts, Windows Defence Counsel displays mostly alerts claiming that your computer is under attack from a remove server. It's completely false. Just like the false scan results, it should be ignored.
