ProtectSoldier is yet another rogue security application from the WiniSoft malware family. It’s a rename of ProtectDefender and ArmorDefender scareware. This fake software is very irritating. It displays disturbing security alerts, creates many harmless files on the computer and later detect those files as serious PC threats or infections.

Without a doubt, ProtectSoldier must be removed from the system as soon as possible. Please read the removal guide below. And remember, don’t purchase it!

Once installed, ProtectSoldier will simulate a system scan and show premeditated infections. It will also hijack Internet Explore and identify safe websites as dangerous.
