ByteDefender comes forth as an antivirus application that you need to register in order to protect your computer from dangerous viruses. Unfortunately, this program is very far from being a computer safety application, because it is classified as rogue antispyware. It means that ByteDefender is a computer threat that has been created to rip you off, leaving your system in ruins.
This rogue comes from the Winisoft family and it shows that it has a notorious background, enabling ByteDefender to do a lot of damage to your computer while it tries to attain its goal. It can easily do it, because there is also a legitimate company called BitDefender, and ByteDefender clearly uses the similarity in the names to trick unsuspecting users into believing that the rogue is the real deal.
As far as the distribution methods are concerned, ByteDefender is usually spread through fake online video codecs, enticing bypassing users into their despicable trap. These fake video players say that you should watch this absolutely exciting video, but the video doesn’t play and it says that you will be able to watch it, if you download the specific codec. The codec is none the other but ByteDefender that installs itself without your permission and then pops into action the next time you turn on your computer.
This rogue performs a fake system scan and floods you with fake security alerts, saying that you system is severely infected with viruses and other types of malware. Then ByteDefender offers to delete the threats for only $49.95. Do not even think of paying for this absolutely worthless program. If you do, your financial information will be exposed to illegal utilization by a third party and you will lose all of your money.
Remove ByteDefender from your computer immediately. If you do know how to follow manual removal instructions, do not hesitate to acquire a legitimate antimalware tool that will terminate and delete ByteDefender for you automatically. Then you will make sure that your computer does not get infected ever again.
