System Defender

What is System Defender?

System Defender is a malicious rogue which may affect your Windows operating system. The clandestine infection may slither in using corrupted spam email attachments or misleading software bundle offers, and it could be downloaded by already running infections, like clandestine Trojans. Once activated, System Defender attempts to intimidate computer users and trick them into thinking that their operating systems are affected by dangerous infections. If you do not remove System Defender in time, the fake security tool will imitate a system scan and will list various bogus threats that you supposedly need to delete. For example, you may be pushed to remove Azero.B. This is not a threat that you need to be scared of; however, the provided description may be intimidating.testtesttest 100% FREE spyware scan and

Description: Category Virus: It modifies the Desktop wallpaper and infects executable files, which are then distributed through any of the usual means…

Instead of trusting the information provided by System Defender, you should delete this fictitious malware detector, and scan the operating system to learn which other threats you need to delete.

How does System Defender work?

As you may know already, System Defender is just a fictitious malware scanner; however, it is easier to discuss it as a rogue antivirus, because the scanner is meant to convince computer users that they need to install Spyware Defender 2014. This is a completely unreliable malware detection and removal tool which you will be offered to purchase for $69.95. After completing a bogus system scan, System Defender initiates the so-called antivirus search and presents a list of supposedly reliable malware removers. Needless to say, Spyware Defender 2014 will be listed as the only available option.

System Defender can block certain executable files, block access to the Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers, and even block Internet connection for Internet Explorer users. If you launched this browser, you would be presented with the following warning.

Internet Explorer Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer!
Most likely causes:
- The website contains exploits that can launch a malicious code on your computer
- Suspicious network activity detected
- There might be an active spyware running on your computer

This warning is fictitious, and it is just one of the many ways System Defender developers will try to intimidate you. Besides this, the threat can corrupt your mouse cursor, flip the desktop upside down, and randomly open porn sites. This activity is meant to aggravate System Defender removal and trick more users into thinking that they should delete fictitious threats using the completely fictitious malware remover. Needless to say, you need to delete System Defender from your operating system to ensure that all intrusive activity is terminated. Well, how can you remove the threat if your computer is corrupted and you cannot run executable files or connect to the web?

How to remove System Defender?

All System Defender removal processes must be performed after rebooting the computer in safe mode. If you do this successfully, you need to remove nouwafmf.exe (under %Temp%\lrkhsasgzc) and the files of other potentially existing threats. Do you think it is easy to delete System Defender manually? It is NOT.
