Vista Defender is another representative of a brand new name-changing rogue that looks just the same as PC Defender Plus. This program is fake because it runs bogus system scans and presents fake alerts about various system threats and infections supposedly found during the scan on your system. The program installs itself onto infected computer without user’s permission or approval. It often bypasses the blockages installed by available security programs on your computer due to poorly updated anti-virus signatures and databases of such programs. Whatever the case might be, Vista Defender is a scam that attacks computers in various parts of the world, and this happens on those systems that have Windows Vista installed on them.
Vista Defender, of course, introduces certain amendments into your system. First, it adds some registry entries into your computer for the purpose of being launched automatically with every system startup. The hoax immediately begins to run the faulty scan of your PC that reports the large number of fake infections and threats later on. When this happens users should be extremely careful. The information presented by this hoax is far away from the truth, but there are many users in the world who don’t realize this important fact. Some have been deceived by this scam thinking that what it says is true. Nevertheless, it’s time to ignore the deceitful statements of Vista Defender, since this is a fake anti-spyware program.
Do you know that when real infections attack your system Vista Defender will never help you eliminate them? Neither will it assist you in alerting you about vulnerabilities detected ahead of time. Thus, as you see, purchasing the so-called licensed version or the activation code of Vista Defender is a total waste of your funds. So, please be wise and ignore all facts claimed by Vista Defender scam! This is not the program that can defend your system. It can only steal your funds without rendering the promised services. Hence, remove this nasty malware sample immediately from your system with the help of GridinSoft Trojan Killer as described below.
