is also known as Win PC Defender, WinPCDefender
| Type: Rogue Antispyware
WinPC Defender is another fake anti-spyware application. The main goal of this parasite is to ruin and compromise system integrity and security. WinPC Defender is a clone of malicious and infamous application called XP Police Antivirus
. This parasite enters the system after the installation of trojan application that pretends to be a video codec.
Once installed and active, WinPCDefender performs fake system scan and basically generates misleading pop-up windows and fake error messages attempting to scare the user and hopping that he will purchase a licence of Win PC Defender. However, WinPC Defender is totally worthless application and should be removed immediately after first appearance. It is obvious that this rogue is unable to detect and of course to remove any kind of infections. We strongly recommend to remove WinPC Defender from the system as soon as possible after detection. Removal delay can only worsen the situation.
