Smart Defender Pro

Smart Defender Pro Description

Smart Defender Pro (also known as SmartDefender PRO) is yet another rogue anti-spyware application hailing from the same family as AV AntiSpyware and P Antispyware 09. Due to affiliated trojans infiltrating via security exploits, Smart Defender Pro is installed onto a computer where it begins launching numerous fake security alerts and falsified infection reports in order to intimidate the user into following onscreen prompts that persuade him to purchase the commercial version of Smart Defender Pro. This fake spyware remover will not assist in keeping the compromised computer protected, however, and should be removed as soon as possible.
