DefendAPc which may be called Defend APc is all over the internet and is waiting to infect your computer system. DefendAPc is a clone of GreatDefender, InSysSecure, SysProtector, SysDefenders rogue programs. DefendAPc will try as many tricks as it can in order to try to get you to buy the full version. One of the tricks that it uses is to present you with many fake security system notifications which may look real to you. All the security system notifications that you are presented with, are all fake.

The malignant DefendAPc is controlled by a tremendously latent executable setup[1].exe. This devious component can link your system to remote servers, launch unauthorized Internet connection, add or delete registry products, and can even reconfigure Windows Security Center and Firewall settings to hide DefendAPc from removal. This, however, is not the worst what this file could do, and if you do not rush to delete the infection timely, the cunning malware dropper could use your personal email accounts to spread the infection via spam email attacks! To acquire passwords and usernames, necessary for the login to your accounts, the dangerous setup[1].exe is capable of recording keystrokes, mouse clicks and screen content. This could allow schemers to gather banking details, acquire social security numbers, and other highly sensitive data.

All of these potential consequences are tremendously risky, but to remove any possibility for the rogue to manipulate your data, you firstly need to understand how DefendAPc works. The mimicked antispyware will show up unexpectedly, and its computer scanner will quickly report various system attacking infections. These are fake, and if you believe them, you will be forced into spending your money onto the bogus tool’s full version.
