Windows Defence is a rogue anti-spyware program that reports false system security threats and claims that your computer is infected with malware. Basically, it’s a rename of Defence Center which is of course a rogue program too. Windows Defence is promoted through the use of fake online scanners and infected websites. Once installed, it will pretend to scan your computer for viruses and then claim that it has found infected files that should be removed from the system immediately. If you choose not to remove these supposedly found infected files then the rogue program will display fake security warnings on your computer screen. The scan results are false, so you can safely ignore them. It goes without saying that you shouldn’t purchase this bogus program. Instead, please follow Windows Defence removal instructions below.
You can remove Windows Defence from your computer manually but we strongly recommend you to use an automatic removal tool simply because there might be other malware installed on your computer. Besides, it it will probably state that you can’t remove infected files manually but will block legitimate anti-spyware and anti-virus programs at the same time. It will also hijack Internet Explorer and claim that you can’t visit certain websites because they are infected. This fake program may even claim that such websites as facebook.com are phishing sites. That sound ridiculous but WindowsDefence does all its best to trick you into paying for a full version of the program. You may have to reboot your computer is safe mode and run a system scan with malware removal tool. The rogue program disables system restore too. The main website of this rogue is windows-defence.com (please don’t visit this site). As you can see, Windows Defence is nothing more but a scam. It detects non-existent files as infections and forces to pay for removal. If you find that your computer is infected with this scareware please use the removal instructions below to remove Windows Defence from your computer. If you have bought it then contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.
