Security Defense is a bogus and completely fake Windows program. Security Defense Virus will display numerous fake alerts and other warnings in order to scare you. Security Defense Virus removal is extremely important and can be accomplished if you follow our instructions. Removal instructions are at the bottom of the article.

Security Defense is yet another rogue antivirus program infecting Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP computer users around the world. The virus infects your computer when you unknowingly download and run a malicious file from the internet. The file is typically disguised as a video player update, movie, music file or game. Many of these malicious files are acquired from social networking websites including Facebook.

Once your computer is infected with the Security Defense Virus it will be rendered almost useless. This infection will prevent the running of any programs when Windows is running. Security Defense does not want the computer user to connect to the internet in order to prevent you from learning how to remove it.

Scare tactics are extremely common with these types of rogue antivirus programs. Security Defense will display numerous warnings and will list detailed security threats that it claims to have found. Some of the threats displayed by Security Defense are worms, trojans, viruses and even claims to have found child porn on your computer. Please remember that the things it claims to have found are not real, it is all a hoax.

The main objective of the Security Defense Virus is to convince you that it is a real program, that your computer is infected with the fake viruses it claims to have found and to eventually have you purchase Security Defense in order to remove the infections. Please remember that Security Defense is completely fake and anything that is says or claims is a total lie. Nothing about Security Defense is true.

No one should ever pay to activate Security Defense. It is fake and offers no benefit whatsoever.

If you attempt to run any programs or access the internet Security Defense will instantly block them. A fake alert will appear when you attempt to launch any programs. The alerts will state that the file or program you are trying to launch is infected and therefore needs to be blocked by Security Defense. Remember that this virus is only blocking the running of programs in order to prevent its removal, a defense mechanism of sorts.
