Internet Defender. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as Internet Defender | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Internet Defender is a rogue anti-spyware program that uses fake scan results and false security alerts as a method to make you think you are infected with malware. It's from the same family as Security Defender. The rogue pretends to scan your computer for viruses and reports fake infections. It then prompts to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats. Actually, it just tries scams you out of your money. If you have paid for the this program already then I suggest you contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. It detects non-existent files as malware but does not allow you to remove them until you purchase the full version of the program. To remove Internet Defender from your computer, please use the removal instructions below.

While Internet Defender is running you will also see many fake security alerts and warnings on your computer. These warnings will state that your computer is infected or that someone is trying to hack your computer and then suggest you purchase Internet Defender to protect yourself. Some of the fake alerts:
