WinDefence is a bogus anti-spyware program, which feigns as a genuine Windows program. In truth, WinDefence was designed by web fraudsters for malicious intentions, that is to damage computers and steal money from innocent PC users. Therefore, you should be careful and uninstall WinDefence from the attacked PC immediately after detection until it's too late. WinDefence promotes itself as a trustworthy security suite but, in truth, it won't protect your PC from any type of malware. WinDefence uses many misleading techniques to fool affected computer users into thinking they have serious security issues with their PCs. WinDefence detects and reports various imaginary malware detected on the compromised PC in order to scare victims into thinking their computers have been infected with lots of security threats. WinDefence also displays fake pop-up security warnings for notifying users about certain PC problems. Then, WinDefence attempts to convince potential victims to purchase its nonexistent full version of the rogue software. WinDefence offers to buy its counterfeit security tool as a solution for extermination of all found PC infections. Do not be frightened by misleading tactics used by WinDefence because all information it gives you is inaccurate and falsified. WinDefence is a security risk to your PC; therefore, ESG's malware analysts advise you to remove this scarware from the affected computer with a reputable anti-malware program.
