Win 7 Defender Firewall Alert – scam

Win 7 Defender is a fake anti-virus application, as you know from our special post about this program. It has in mind to trick users into believing their system is in danger, based on the large number of faulty information presented by this hoax during its bogus scan of your system. In particular, this fake anti-spyware gives a special alert called “Win 7 Defender Firewall Alert”. However, the truth we know about this alert is that this is a totally faulty alert, just as well as many other bogus security notifications, warnings and popups of this program.

The aim of Win 7 Defender is to make users believe that their system is in a dangerous condition. First, the program runs the fake scanning of your computer and then reports many bogus infections and threats. Then it gives a warning for users to buy its license (activation code) as a supposed solution to fixing the above-said threats. Of course, doing so is a serious mistake, and users must be very careful at this point not to trust any portion of deceitful information expressed by this scareware. Remember that this program was developed by the team of cyber hackers, and there’s nothing good to expect of it.

The only correct and wise solution is to ignore the bunch of faulty alerts expressed by Win 7 Defender malware. This is the first step to its successful elimination. The next step is, of course, to find the right solution that will help you eliminate this pest from your system. For this purpose please scan your PC with reliable security software. We recommend you to choose GridinSoft Trojan Kiler for this purpose and follow the guidelines described below.
