Remove PCPrivacyDefender

PCPrivacyDefender is a rogue security application that was developed by the Russian Business Network. The RBN has been responsible for many malicious applications and scams and this is just one of their latest creations. PCPrivacyDefender pretends to be a quality product, but in reality it offers no protection whatsoever.

Instead of offering protection, PCPrivacyDefender delivers fake warnings about malicious infections. It performs a phony system scan and urges the infected user to pay for the full version in order to have the imaginary infections removed. However, the full version of this rogue doesn’t remove any real threats, but only hinders the infected computer and causes it to slow down dramatically.
