Win7 Defender. Virus removal tool

Win7 Defender (a.k.a. Win 7 Defender or Win Defender) is another representative of most recent fake anti-virus programs that have similar interface, yet they have different names depending on the type of the operating system installed on the attacked machine. This program has the cruelest of intentions – to make users waste their funds for the tool that isn’t worth buying at all. This tool is Win7 Defender itself. The developers of this application simply didn’t have in mind to assist users in rendering security services. Instead, they went another path – the path of deception and fraud. Their creature has the worst of the motives, since they all are associated with ripping users off and bringing them to the point of despair, after being deceived and tricked by the bunch of faulty security alerts presented by this scam.


The behavior of Win7 Defender doesn’t really differ from that of XP Defender virus that has been described by us a couple of minutes ago. You should understand how this malware installs itself. It is not a secret that the very infiltration process of this malware takes place in a hidden manner, when users cannot actually terminate the process of its installer. This often happens as a result of clicking some unsafe links that instruct users to download some alleged video codes that are supposedly necessary to view some video online movies.

Sooner or later, the GUI of Win7 Defender comes up in front of your screen. By the way, this happens each time you actually want to do something on your machine. The malware immediately starts implementing its malicious plots on your workstation. Thus, it runs the faulty scan of your system and later on reports the multitude of fake infections that aren’t even present on your system. The intention of this hoax is to make you buy its fake and useless license (registration key or activation code) as a supposed remedy for elimination of all the above-said fake threats. The point, however, is that when real infections do attack your system, this program will not be able to assist you in defending your Windows 7 operating system from serious vulnerabilities. Hence, what Win7 Defender really promises is a fake protection and powerless defense. Its aims are malicious, its promises are fake and its protection is just the imitation of a real one.
