System Defender

What is System Defender?

System Defender is a security program that should not be trusted, since it is a scam released by cyber criminals. This fake antivirus software is designed to scare PC users into believing that their computers are infected with malware and viruses.

To achieve this deceptive goal, System Defender uses fake security scans, fake malware detection lists, and fake security warning messages. The program usually installs on PCs without users' consent and immediately starts a security scan that results in the detection of various 'high-risk spyware' threats.

Furthermore, this rogue software modifies the registry entries of the infected operating system and blocks execution of installed software. The creators of this scam intend to give the impression that the targeted PC is infected with high-risk malware and that System Defender can offer a security software solution to fix these issues.

In fact, none of the 'detected' viruses or malware exist on your computer - this bogus program is designed to make you believe otherwise in an attempt to sell its promoted fake antivirus programs.
