ArmorDefender is a rogue anti-spyware application that reports false scan results to make you think that you are infected or constantly displays fake pop-ups claiming that your computer is under attack or overall has many security issues. It interrupts work in progress and states that you must pay for a full version of the program in order to remove the infections which of course don’t even exist. ArmorDefender is a typical scareware and should be removed upon detection. Please use the removal guide below and remove this virus from your computer immediately. You can do that either manually or with an automatic removal tool.

Usually, ArmorDefender comes from fake online scanners and must be manually installed, but it may come bundled with other malicious software too. If wee assume that this virus came from fake online scanners then your PC is infected with at least one Trojan virus that displays this ArmorDefender rogueware. Another quite annoying thing is browser hijacking. The rogue program redirects users to entirely different websites, usually scam websites that re full of false information and at the end may infect your PC even more. One of such websites is armordefender.com [Figure 2]. It’s supposedly a home page of ArmorDefender. Don’t visit that website even knowing that it doesn’t host any harmful files.
