Windows PC Defender - How to remove?
Windows PC Defender is a rogue anti-spyware program and a clone of Ultimate System Guard, Windows Guard Pro and some others. This parasite spreads by deceiving users into downloading the program. It also relies on misleading advertising to trick you into purchasing it’s so-called “licensed version”, which is just as fake as the “trial”.
When surfing the web, you may encounter popups, such as these:
“Warning! Your computer is infected
Warning! Trojan Found!
File name: crss.drv
Threat name: Trojan-Spy.HTML.Sunfraud.a”
Suspicious software, which may be malicious, has been detected on your PC. Click here to remove this threat immediately with Windows PC Defender”
You have a choice what to click on these popups, but this is where choice ends, since regardless of what you click, the parasite will take you to an online-scanner. This scanner is fake, but will not appear to be so. It pretends to scan the system and afterwards claims that it is infected and in need of an anti-spyware program. You will then be prompted to download Windows PC Defender, which can supposedly dispose of the infection.
Once inside and active, Windows PC Defender creates harmless files and runs a scan, which marks these files as serious threats to the system. They cannot be removed, or so Windows PC Defender claims, without the “full version” of the remover, which costs quite a bit of money and is every bit as useless as the trial.
Windows PC Defender is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block these websites:
Remove Windows PC Defender and all its files as soon as you detect this parasite in your PC!

Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove Windows PC Defender, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Reimage or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.
