Windows Pro Defence Removal Guide
End of the year seems to be the busiest period of rogue makers and developers. Yet another notorious family of rogues has a new addition and the virus is called Windows Pro Defence. Such type of antispyware applications adjust their names according to what operating system is running on your computer. It could be applied, for example, to XP Defender Plus 2013, Vista Defender Plus 2013 or Win 7 Defender Plus 2013.
It goes without saying that Windows Pro Defense comes from a family of fake antivirus tools that pretend to be scanning your computer in order to detect malware. However all the notifications and detections Windows Pro Defence is showing are false. The only infection on your computer is the rogue and other malicious applications that might be responsible for the rogue infection. You should try to delete Windows Pro Defence in all possible ways.
How can I get Windows Pro Defence?
Rogue antispyware applications have several ways of distribution, e.g. can be downloaded and installed by other types of malware, such as Trojan downloaders (for example, TrojanDropper:Win32/Hilot.gen!A), backdoors, rootkits and so on. It means that your system can be infected prior to Windows Pro Defence entering it, and that regular system scans with a reliable antimalware tool should help you protect the system from potential harm.
As far as Windows Pro Defence is concerned, once the program is installed on your PC, it modifies certain entries in Windows registry that allows it to auto-start together with Windows. Then Windows Pro Defence pops into action and performs a full system “scan”. It may find several infections and claim that you should remove it. Basically, the main reason why the rogue is present in your system – it wants your money. To strengthen the impression that you are infected, it also bombards you with some fake security notifications.
How does Windows Pro Defence act?
It is also possible that Windows Pro Defence might block your Task Manager and Registry Editor in order to remain in your system for as long as possible. It can also block .exe files (which includes your browsers as well), although the Internet connection does not get blocked and you still have your Windows Explorer. In order to bypass its defenses, you need to load Safe Mode with Networking and then download SpyHunter onto your computer. Finally, acquire a reliable antimalware tool and operate automatic Windows Pro Defence removal, but whatever you do, do not reveal your credit card information to the creators of this rogue antispyware application!
