Do you know what PC Defender 360 is?
PC Defender 360 is a disruptive and clandestine rogue anti-spyware which attacks operating Windows systems. Schemers have created the threat to fool computer users into thinking that their machines have been infected with critically dangerous threats. If you fall for this scam, you may be lured into paying money for the full-version of the fake anti-virus. Even though the interface of the rogue suggests that this is the only option you have to have malware removed, in reality, it is about the worst thing you could do. If you pay the requested sum of money, you will share your private information with schemers without even realizing it, not to mention the complete waste of money. Whether you have activated the allegedly licensed version of the rogue or not, we recommend that you remove PC Defender 360 as soon as possible. To learn more about the removal – continue reading.
It has been discovered that PC Defender 360 derives from the well-known family of rogue anti-spyware programs – Rogue.WinWebSec. Other infamous infections from this faction include Attentive Antivirus, System Care Antivirus Virus, AVASoft Professional Antivirus and System Progressive Protection. These clandestine threats can block most system executables, meaning that access to the Task Manager and Registry Editor will seem removed. Moreover, you may have issues connecting to the Internet. As you may guess, this is meant to lure you away from automatic/manual PC Defender 360 removal tasks. This may also help schemers create an illusion that your PC is corrupted by malware which should be deleted. Our researchers guarantee that all recommendations and pop-up notifications are misleading and should be ignored. Here are a couple of examples:

The clandestine rogue is still active within your operating Windows system, and so its malignant files could restore the infection or expose security backdoors for other clandestine threats.
