Spyware Defender

Spyware Defender is an unreliable, rogue anti-malware which is presented via a fictitious malware scanner. It is clear that the rogue has been designed by cyber criminals, because no reputable, reliable company would offer users to purchase a security tool that cannot detect or remove real threats, and cannot ensure reliable protection. Cyber criminals, on the other hand, release lots of fake malware removal tools every year. Needless to say, it is necessary to remove Spyware Defender if it has infiltrated the operating system, and this article has been designed to help you with the removal operation.

As you may have realized it yourself, Spyware Defender is not a regular rogue anti-virus program. In fact, it is best to call it a fake malware scanner. The infection performs a fake system scan and lists various non-existent threats that you supposedly need to delete. The interface of the fake scanner may be accompanied by intimidating pop-up alerts all pushing you to delete the supposedly detected infections. If you try to remove threats detected by Spyware Defender, you will be presented with this notification.

This app is unable to delete all found threats!
A suitable antivirus software is not installed on your computer.
Please press Search Antivirus button to find and install suitable software to clean your system from threats.
You need to immediately install antivirus software and clean up your computer. Your personal data is at risk!

If you click the Search Antivirus button, the Spyware Defender scanner will imitate a software search, and then you will be presented with a list of available antivirus programs. For example, you may be offered to "Buy and Install" Spyware Defender 2014 ($69.95), Antivirus WIN 2014 Ultimate ($69.95), or Antivirus MAC 2014 ($70.00). Neither of these antivirus tools should be trusted. If you choose to purchase these fake AV tools, the data you provide during the purchase could be used for phishing scams. Furthermore, you should never invest in fake, unreliable malware removal software like Spyware Defender. Needless to say, you should invest your money in authentic and trustworthy automatic malware removal software.

If you install reliable security software, you will solve a few different problems. First of all, you will not need to worry about the manual Spyware Defender removal. Secondly, the security software will patch security vulnerabilities used for the infiltration of rogues and other dangerous infections. Keep in mind that if Spyware Defender is active, it is quite possible that the operating system is already infected with other dangerous infections. Needless to say, it is equally as important to remove other malicious applications as it is to delete Spyware Defender. How about the manual removal? We do not recommend this option, because rogues are extremely intricate, and not all Windows users will be able to succeed.

Spyware Defender can corrupt the operating system to make sure that you do not install authentic malware detection and removal software. The infection can deny access to web browsers, block the running of .exe files, and even disable Internet connection (Internet Explorer). Luckily, you can delete Spyware Defender from the PC, and the instructions show you how to perform the operation successfully.
