IE Defender

IE Defender Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

ScreenshotIE Defender is classified as a rogue anti-spyware application because of its misleading and aggressive advertising practices. IE Defender creators and their marketing affiliates propagate and install IE Defender's rogue anti-spyware application through a download that is bundled with a Trojan generated by a Browser Helper object (BHO). Most of these Trojan bundled downloads circulate in web sites that offer a "video codec" to view free adult entertainment videos.

Once your computer gets infected with the Trojan, it will start showing up an annoying pop-up message: "NOTICE: Your system is infected and your computer performance is not at the highest level. Full system optimization will greatly increase your computer's performance and prevent data loss". Do NOT click on this fake error message because it will redirect your IE to IE Defender's website where you will be forced to download IE Defender's anti-spyware application.

Moreover, the Trojan, which has come bundled from either IE Defender and/or their affiliates, hijacks your search engines (such as Google, Yahoo and MSN) and displays a fake warning message within your search results claiming that your computer is in serious danger because of hazardous parasites in your system. This is the manner how they attempt to trick the users into purchasing IE Defender full commercial version. Again, do NOT click on this fake error message because it will direct you IE Defender's homepage where you will be offered to purchase IE Defender's application.ScreenshotScreenshot
