One of malicious applications which are easy to download is Windows Active Defender. This so-called security tool is fraudulent software which is not worth trusting. The rogue is a clone of such malware as Windows Privacy Counsel, Windows Custom Safety and other fake applications which are ascribed to Rogue.VirusDoctor family. Windows Active Defender is an infection which has an interface of professionally looking antivirus application, and this is the major reason why people place their trust in this malware.
Windows Active Defender is similar to Windows application because of its icons which are identical to the icons of your Windows. The Home, Firewall or Quick Scan icons of the rogue’s interface are identical to the icons on your Start menu. The colors of the Microsoft logo are used in the same manner as well.
In order to lure you into believing that your computer is full of viruses, Trojans or worms, Windows Active Defender mimics checkups of the system, shows imaginary infections and pops up fake warnings or errors. On your screen, you might find such threats as Rootkit.Win32.KernelBot, Trojan.Win32.Qhost or Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agen and many others. These infections are imaginary; therefore, their manual removal is inadvisable, because you might delete files which are essential for the system to run properly. What you should actually do is remove Windows Active Defender, but we will talk about this later. First, to know your enemy better, find how it may try to deceive you into purchasing its supposedly real full version which is said to be able to remove infections:
Software without a digital signature detected. Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk. It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Warning! Virus Detected
Threat detected: FTP Server
To scare you even more, Windows Active Defender introduces impairments of the system so that you cannot remove it easily and, most importantly, to make you think that those impairments have occurred due to infections. The Internet becomes no longer available as well as certain executable files which would detect infections if the application had not been disabled. In order no to be detected and deleted, Windows Active Defender also hides Task Manager, which shows the processes of the system, and Registry Editor, where malicious entries are created. As soon as these tools are restored, the malware can be removed from the system.
If you activate the rogue, you restore the tools hidden and disable annoying messages and scans. You should not purchase the full version of Windows Active Defender to get an activation key, because it is already provided. Plus, if you purchase the rogue, you lose your money and data, because your money and sensitive data such as credit card or bank account number, passwords, etc are all that the cyber criminals need. Therefore, use the key given below, and, after the activation, remove Windows Active Defender:
Terminate Windows Active Defender by deleting its components of the system. Remove everything related to the rogue. If this way is not appropriate for you, remove the rogue automatically. The automatic removal of Windows Active Defender is by far the most convenient way of removal, because the elements of the infections are detected and removed by an antispyware tool. A removal tool also protects the system and does not allow other infections to enter the system.
