Major Defense Kit is a known rogue antispyware application which forms part of the heavily despised fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam. This rogue helps unscrupulous cyber criminals rip honest, hardworking consumers off. It emulates the workings of a real security tool in order to trick users into paying for its worthless software. Although Major Defense Kit will try everything in its power to convince its prospective victims that it is a genuine security tool, it does not change the fact that it is unable to live up to any of its worthless promises.
This rogue enters the system surreptitiously and will not reveal itself to the user until such time that it is able to start its attack against the system. This will usually be heralded by Major Defense Kit starting a fake security scan of the system which will invariably yield bogus scan results. These fake scan results were designed simply to panic the user into paying for Major Defense Kit’s worthless software.
As a further attack against the system Major Defense Kit will spam the user with various fake alerts in the form of pop up messages. It will also prevent the user from connecting to the Internet as well as prevent the user from executing applications on the system. Each time the user attempts to launch an application he will be presented with the following fake error message:
The application iexplore.exe was launched successfully but it was forced to shut down due to security reasons.
This happened because the application was infected by a malicious program which might pose a threat for the OS.
It is highly recommended to install the necessary heuristic module and perform a full scan of your computer to exterminate malicious programs from it.
When all is said and done the only way to protect your PC against the severe destruction this rogue is certain to cause is to get rid of Major Defense Kit. This is easily and safely achieved by incorporating the removal power of a genuine security tool.
