Desktop Defender 2010

Desktop Defender 2010 is the latest in fake security tools, disguised as a legitimate antispyware application, this dubious applciait0on will only cause damage to any system it has infiltrated.

Desktop Defender 2010 hails from the same rogueware family as Contraviro and UnVirex.
