ProtectDefender, also known as Protect Defender, is the latest rogue anti-spyware application, causing only havoc on the internet community. ProtectDefender tends to spread itself via Trojan infections, spam emails or via its affiliated web-sites. Just like its one day older clone ArmorDefender, The malicious activity carried out by ProtectDefender involves the generation of fabricated pop-up alert messages and fake system scans, which will always report the presence of certain infections occupying the user’s computer system.
Once installed, ProtectDefender may be configured to run automatically upon each system launch, which means the annoying pop-up messages will appear as soon as the user logs onto their system. ProtectDefender will bombard the user with dozens of fake alert messages, suggesting that the only solution would be to purchase the full version of this fake software - in order to remove the ‘detected’ threats. Remember – purchasing ProtectDefender ‘licensed’ version is only going to end up being a huge waste of money. If ProtectDefender has been detected in a machine, it should be deleted immediately.
