Do you know what Windows Pro Defence Kit is?
Windows Pro Defence Kit is a rogue and this rogue is meant to provide misleading information to trick you into thinking that malicious programs have taken over your personal computer. Since the rogue is considered to be a malicious application itself, it would be naive to think that it could identify Trojans, viruses, keyloggers, or any other infections. You certainly should not expect the fictitious anti-spyware to remove malignant software. Of course, if you purchase the full version of the rogue, and this is the main objective behind the scam, the fake infections will appear to be removed. Nonetheless, the threat will not delete real Trojans which may have installed the rogue itself. These are a few reasons why you should delete Windows Pro Defence Kit from the computer. You should also make sure to remove such predecessors as Windows Defence Master or Windows Security Master which belong to the Rogue.VirusDoctor family.
Most computer users do not identify Windows Pro Defence Kit as a rogue as soon as it appears on the PC. Unfortunately, even if you do recognize the rogue, it might be extremely difficult to delete it from the system. The infection can remove access to the web browsers, Task Manager, Registry Editor, and other Windows utilities. The direct outcome of this is aggravated Windows Pro Defence Kit removal. It will be extremely difficult to delete this infection from the system if you cannot terminate malignant processes or download automatic malware removal software. Nonetheless, this is exactly what you should do because the devious rogue can corrupt the computer and flood the desktop with completely fictitious information.

As you may have realized already, the interface of the clandestine rogue is highly misleading. All of the attributes, including Firewall, Automatic Updates, Anti-Phishing or Antivirus Protection, are fictitious. All in all, it is most essential to stay away from the bogus Antivirus Scanner and the misleading pop-up alerts. Note that on the interface of the rogue you can find the Question icon. If you click it and select Register, you will be presented with an area for registered users. You can try to apply one of the keys below to activate the full version of the supposedly legitimate malware remover. This should disable all of the existing symptoms.
As soon as the keys are activated, you should launch a browser and download a legitimate Windows Pro Defence Kit remover. We recommend using SpyHunter because this tool will detect and delete all existing computer threats, including potentially existing Trojans. If you keep the software active at all times, your operating system will be protected against other threats reliably. In case the registration keys do not work, you can use the removal guide below.
