What is PC Defender 360?
If the scanner of PC Defender 360 has detected tens or even hundreds of malicious programs running on your computer, Anti-Spyware-101.com recommend that you firstly remove the most dangerous of all threats – PC Defender 360. The program flaunts as a reliable security tool which can detect and delete all sorts of clandestine threats (e.g. Trojan.JS.Fraud.ba, Hoax.HTML.Agnet.i).

Needless to say, the first thing you should ask yourself once you notice the program scanning your computer is – where did it come from?

How does PC Defender 360 act?
As soon as cyber criminals infiltrate the malignant program onto your personal computer, you may discover that you cannot access the Task Manager, Registry Editor or connect to the web.

The interface of the clandestine infection is so misleading that most Windows users do not recognize the threat. Have you noticed any pop-ups? Ignore them because they belong to the rogue as well:
