There are different types of fake antivirus programs and Antivirus Defence seems to be the most puzzling out of all of them. It is virtually an “empty” piece of software that does nothing to your computer. It basically just gets installed on your computer, but unlike any other “decent” rogue, Antivirus Defence cannot even perform a fake system scan. According to computer security experts, this empty “shell” program is there to convince various payment systems and companies that users who are spending their money on a fake product are actually acquiring a legitimate program. It is needless to say, that the sooner you remove Antivirus Defence from your computer the better.
However, removing Antivirus Defence from your system alone will not save the problem. The thing is that if you have this green-interfaced pseudo fake AV on your computer, then you are definitely infected with a dangerous rogue antispyware application from WinWebSec family. Users generally download and install Antivirus Defence when they access rogue purchase pages and try to buy the full version of a particular fake AV application. For example, it is known to be directly related to such computer infections as Attentive Antivirus or System Progressive Protection.
Regardless of how Antivirus Defence entered your computer, it is important to understand that this program has nothing in common with real computer security applications. The program is there only to convince you that your system is supposedly seriously infected with malware and thus you need to purchase a full version of it. Its claims are generally supported by an entire throng of fake security notifications that pop up every other second:
No matter how desperate you may be, paying for the application is not an option. If you paid for program already, then you need to contact your bank or credit card company at once, so that you card would be blocked and the cyber criminals would be barred from exploiting your financial funds. You will be issued a new card, and it will no longer be your greatest concern.
Your main objective at the moment, however, is to remove Antivirus Defence from your system. It is obvious that unless you are a computer security expert, you should not try deleting the rogue manually, because you might end up removing important system files, and you would virtually “blue-screen” your PC. Therefore, it is for the best to invest in a powerful computer security tool that will terminate Antivirus Defence for you automatically and then you will be able to safeguard your system against similar intruders in the future.
