Windows PC Defender is a phony anti-virus program that belongs to the same rogue family as Windows Guard Pro and Ultimate System Guard. It exploits a variety of deception strategies in order to lure users into buying its fake licenced version.
Windows PC Defender has its own advertising net and its pop-ups are displayed while the targeted user is browsing the net. No matter where on the alert one would click, it would lead to a fake scanning webpage. The online scanner pretends to be checking the victim's computer and comes up with the counterfeit conclusion that the PC is infected with a number of viruses. Then the advertisement scanner urges the user to purchase Windows PC Defender and promotes it as the best possible virus-remover. This is all a trick – the online scanner, as well as the advertised program, are not capable of detecting or eliminating any viruses, they only aim at the user's money.
If the program is downloaded on a computer, it starts creating a number of harmless files on it in order to list them as viruses in the future scans. It also bombards the machine with notifications.
The alerts constantly appear on the desktop of the infected machine, and even over your running programs, and do not disappear unless you take some action. Some of them are:
Suspicious software, which may be malicious, has been detected on your PC. Click here to remove this threat immediately with Windows PC Defender.
Your system is infected. Do you want to protect it?
Unauthorized remote connection!
Your system is making an unauthorized personal data transfer to remote computer!
All the actions that Windows PC Defender undertakes are followed by an urge for the victim to purchase its deceitful full version. Instead of falling for this application's tricks, you should eliminate it as soon as you notice it working on your computer!
