Paladin Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware, fake security application which must be avoided in any circumstances. That should be not a surprise because Paladin Antivirus was created by the same hackers who are to blame for releasing Malware Defense, another dangerous program posing to be legitimate. This malware is created after legitimate and reputable Kaspersky antivirus, so don’t fall into this trick.
Paladin Antivirus uses the same means of distribution where Trojans are the main part in the story how this scam gets inside your PC. Computer exerts announce that these viruses come bundled as flash updates necessary for watching videos online or spam email attachments. After getting inside, these Trojans unnoticeably install Paladin Antivirus on the PC which starts once the computer boots up. When active, badware imitates scanning the system for malware and classically detects hundreds of viruses that all are expected to scare trustful PC users about their PCs security. However, the only truth is that these “viruses” in reality should be ignored because they all are either legitimate or fake. What is more, Paladin Antivirus also detects all the legitimate anti-spywares and prompts its victims to uninstall them. The examples of such programs are Spyware Doctor, F-Secure, Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, NOD32, Avira AntiVir, avast! and other.
Moreover, keep in mind that Paladin Antivirus also displays numerous security alerts on the desktop. These alerts also inform about running infections that try to attack your PC. Messages loaded by Paladin Antivirus usually look like that:

Just like the scan results, these security warnings try only to make you concerned about your PCs security.
