Antivirus Defence - How to remove?
What is Antivirus Defence?
Antivirus Defence is a rogue antivirus program that imitates functions of a legitimate security tool and seeks to convince computer users into purchasing its full version. The program belongs to the WinWebSec family of rogues like System Care Antivirus or Antiviral Factory 2013 which actively infect computers lately. Antvirus Defence is usually installed to computers by a Trojan, when you visit some compromised websites or open infected email messages.
The program modifies your system settings and enables itself to start automatically every time you boot your computer. Basically you will see Antivirus Defence scanning your computer although you did not run any scanner by yourself. It will not allow you to close it and after couple of minutes, the program will display scan results saying that it detected a bunch of malicious entries. To remove them, you will be offered to purchase a full version of Antivirus Defence.
Just like other members of WinWebSec family, the program will also display fake security notifications and pop up ads warning about viruses and malware detected. These messages also propose activating Antivirus Defence by purchasing its full version. It is just one more try to swindle your money away.
Security experts strongly recommend removing Antivirus Defence rogue program. Use a reliable antispyware program, for example, Spyhunter ( http://www.2-viruses.com/downloads/spyhunter2.exe ). If you cannot run your antispyware program, follow the instructions below.
