What is Content Defender?
What do you call a program that promises one service and, in reality, produces something completely different? Content Defender is that kind of program, and we do not identify it as harmless. You must have been made to believe that this application can protect your operating system against malicious content, but this is just bait that the developer of this program uses to attract more users. Would you install a program whose only intention was to replace the ads you see on the websites you visit? Of course you would not, which is why Yunitekh Soft and Artex Management S.A. have decided to promote this ad-supported program in a completely misleading way. Doesn’t this make you want to remove Content Defender? If you need more information before you can make any decisions, you can read this article.
How does Content Defender work?
You must have noticed advertisements in online shopping sites or other kinds of websites when browsing the web. Although users can install ad-blockers to disable these ads, not many users use this option. The thing is that there are a lot of fake ad-blockers, and users could encounter more security issues by installing this software than by interacting with the ads shown. Online advertisements can be identified as unreliable as well, which is why you have to be very careful about which ads you click on. Unfortunately, Content Defender can replace even authentic and harmless ads, which is why it is considered to be extremely dangerous. It is most likely that these ads will be represented in Russian, which might help you realize that something is wrong -- unless, of course, you live in Russia, and most ads are shown using this language. Note that ads could also be injected by Adware.eTranslator or Adware.Torrent Search, both of which were seen to come bundled in the same package as Content Defender.
Since you cannot download the program from contentdefender.org, we fear that you might install it packaged with unreliable programs. Although Content Defender can show misleading ads and open up security backdoors for other threats to slither, more malicious infections might not need your interaction to invite malware and act in a dangerous way. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers recommend inspecting your operating system to see if other malicious programs were installed onto your operating system.
How to remove Content Defender
Content Defender cannot defend you against malicious content because it was not created to do that. This misleading advertisement-supported program was created to show potentially unreliable advertisements which can replace regular ads shown on the sites you visit. There is no doubt that this adware is unreliable, and the sooner you remove it from your operating system, the better. Fortunately, the removal of Content Defender is very straightforward. Of course, even if you eliminate this threat from your PC, it does not mean that you are out of the woods. Keep in mind that other unreliable programs could be active on your operating system. Needless to say, nothing beats the services of an automated malware remover when it comes to the elimination of unreliable software.
