PC Privacy Defender - How to remove?
What is PC Privacy Defender?
PC Privacy Defender is a generic rogue anti-spyware program. This parasite is a fake spyware remover, which relies on backdoor trojans, such as the infamous Zlob, to spread. PC Privacy Defender uses misleading advertising to trick people into purchasing the program’s “full version”, which is no more functional than the “trial”.
Once inside and active, PC Privacy Defender will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. While this information may coincidentally be true, PC Privacy Defender has neither the ability to detect nor remove spyware, and should therefore be ignored. Much like any other rogue out there, PC Privacy Defender performs fake system scans, which produce greatly exaggerated results, oftentimes containing false positives.
PC Privacy Defender is a threat and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
