Computer users must understand that XP Defender is not what it initially appears to be. XP Defender wants PC users to believe that it is a security program for computers running Windows, most times Windows XP, where it detects malware or computer issues and offers a solution to those problems through registration and purchase of the XP Defender program. The interface of XP Defender is one that was cleverly designed to resemble notable and trusted security programs on the current Windows PC software market.
XP Defender pales in its so-called ability to detect, remove, or provide protection against malware and other computer security threats. XP Defender is actually part of a recent rash of malware applications all designed to extort money from lighthearted computer users.
The actions of XP Defender extorting money start with its installation. Installing XP Defender sometimes takes place without any indication to the PC user by means of a Trojan horse or download from a malicious source on the internet. After installed, XP Defender is known for displaying preposterous alert message popups followed up with system scans filled with erroneous results.
All of the deceptive actions of XP Defender are done to win-over the trust of a PC user. Once the trust is gained, XP Defender offers itself for a ridiculous price promising to remove the threats if the fee of about $70 or more is paid up.
For PC users who have either wised up to the deception of XP Defender or have become aggravated with XP Defender’s repeated popups and bogus system scans, will want to remove XP Defender.
