Do you know what is Advanced Defender?
Advanced Defender is another rogue anti-spyware application - a complete scam! Advanced Defender is designed to coerce PC users into believing that their computer system has been infected with various spyware and malware, all of which are tactics employed to ensure the unsuspecting user will fall for the scam and ultimately purchase the full version of Advanced Defender, which, quite obviously is completely useless. Advanced Defenderusually infects computers via misleading advertisements, which claim to be online virus scanners. Alternatively, Advanced Defender may also enter into a computer system via Trojan infections.
In non-techie terms:
Once Advanced Defender is installed on a computer it will perform a system security scan and will definitely report malware infections found – it is important to note that these reported infections are fake! Advanced Defender will also display annoying pop-up warning messages and system alert notifications, stating that the computer is infected. These warnings are also fictitious and should NOT be trusted! Do not fall for the Advanced Defender scam! Do not purchase this corrupt software, and most importantly remove Advanced Defender and all its components from an infected system ASAP!
