Basic Information about Windows Defence Unit Fake Antivirus

Windows Defence Unit is identified as a rogueware, or scareware which attempts to generate illegal profits for its makers with the use of unethical marketing technique. To be more specific, this phony antivirus program pretends to have a check over the targeted system and displays made-up security report detailing existing computer infections. Victims may tend to believe this parasite when they notice that their PCs are running in extremely slow state and get struck constantly. Moreover, when they try to launch some installed programs, like word processors, eBook readers or music players, they get a warning message instead. The warning alerts displayed by Windows Defence Unit malware declare that the programs users attempt to open are infected by viruses. As a result, they are blocked from launching for safety reason.

Subsequently, this fake security tool offers its help to remove all hidden malware on the condition that computer owners purchase its licensed version first. Since none of the existing legit antivirus program, including Microsoft Security Essential, Spy Hunter and Kaspersky, report any potential threats, PC users can tell that this Windows Defence Unit must have lied. As a matter of fact, this threat generates tons of garbage files at temp files and takes up large system resource, which drags down the PC performance dramatically. Also, it tempers file association and triggers off the warning message on its own. Undoubtedly, if this malware is not removed timely, more computer infections will be brought in by it. Therefore, affected PC owners should take immediate actions to get rid of this pest.
