How to remove Vista Defender?
What is Vista Defender?
Vista Defender is a rogue antivirus program that was designed by the same cyber criminals who are responsible for the entire Braviax family. The program enters computer system using exactly the same methods like all other Braviax applications. It uses Trojan viruses and reaches the system completely secretly. Vista Defender pretends to be a scanner and simulates checking for infections. However, it doesn’t detect any real ones but only the files that were created before. For this reason, the scan results by Vista Defender can be safely ignored. They do not correspond to actual situation of your computer.
However, if you’re not aware of the real intentions of Vista Defender you might easily fall for this scam. In this case, you will probably follow what the program will tell you to do and that is purchasing its full version. It will promise removing all the infections that your system contains and provide protection in future. Besides, the program tends to display tons of fake security notifications and pop up ads warning about different system problems. Do not take these messages for granted. In reality Vista Defender only attempts to reveal your credit card details and charge your credit card without actually performing any function.
You are strongly advised to remove Vista Defender from your computer as soon as you notice its first signs there. If it happened to you to pay for it, please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges as soon as possible. Scan your computer using a legitimate antispyware program, such as Spyhunter for the best results. Press start->run and enter anti-malware program URL like http://www.2-viruses.com/downloads/spyhunter-i.exe . Press continue unprotected and the download will start even if you can’t navigate anywhere. Rename the executable to .com, or you will not be able to launch it as well. If this does’t work, press start-> run and enter http://www.2-viruses.com/wp-content/uploads/exeregfix.reg , download it and import into registry. Then run the first executable again.
