Security Defender Removal Guide
Security Defender is a computer infection from the
family of rogue anti-spyware programs. This infection is considered a
rogue because it deliberately displays false scan results, false
security alerts, and hijacks your computer so that you are unable to run
your normal applications. This infection is promoted as a utility that
is required to view an online video, but actually installs the Security
Defender infection instead. Once started, the rogue will pretend to be
an anti-virus program but will display fake scan results and alerts.
When you try to fix any of the infections it supposedly found, you will
be shown a message stating that you need to purchase it before it can
remove anything. As this is just a scare tactic, please ignore anything
that it displays and continue with the rest of the removal guide.
