Once installed, the rogue program prompts to purchase a license of PC Defender Antivirus to remove non-existent threats or infections. It goes without saying that you should remove PC Defender Antivirus from your computer upon detection. PC Defender Antivirus is usually promoted through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners and other misleading websites. When installed, the rogue program will display fake security alerts claiming that your PC is under attack or that is seriously infected with adware, spyware and other viruses. These fake security alerts look like those legitimate from Widows Security Center. This parasite may also impersonate Windows Security Center and report that anti-virus protection is disabled.
While running, PC Defender Antivirus will run fake system scan and display a variety of infections that can’t be removed unless you first purchase the program.
