SecureDefense is not a good solution if you want to successfully detect malware and then stop its activity. Instead of these and other computer security functions that Secure Defense declares for its potential victims, this program only mimics them and then asks to purchase its licensed version. Well, that’s the trick about rogue anti-spywares. Users are made to believe that they really check their computers for viruses and then report real threats detected. People are convinced next that the only anti-spyware which will help to eliminate these threats is Security Defense or any other of its earlier variants – IronProtector, ShieldSoldier or TrustDefender. However, all these programs should be uninstalled as soon as possible.
To begin with, most of us find a very surprising thing that SecureDefense starts appearing on computer’s desktop though it has never been installed there. The trick of such malwares is that they infiltrate computers unexpectedly with a help of Trojans and start playing havoc inside their system. You may be tricked into installing a fake video codec which will be foolishly required in order to watch something online. However, instead of it only SecureDefense will be let inside and even a fake registry cleaner, called RegistryClever, may be installed as well.
After a secret infiltration, scamware starts displaying numerous misleading alerts and even poses to be scanning the system for viruses. It should be quite expected thing that there will be listed a great variety of infections located on your machine and recommended to remove. However, SecureDefense only pretends to check your system for viruses and reports fake malware files created by itself just after getting on board. Here are some examples of warnings displayed by SecureDefense:
It should be obvious that SecureDefense has no antivirus engine and genuine security database. This program is not the one that should be trusted, in particular when it claims about nonexistent viruses detected on your PC. So, the sooner you remove SecureDefese from your computer, the sooner you will bring your computer back to normal. Use the removal guide written below and get rid of all this rogue anti-spyware completely.
