Is your computer currently telling you that it’s in risks because of all the pop-ups bringing by this Win 7 Defender Plus 2013 application? The rest anti-virus tools don’t detect any of these issues, do they? Where is this Win7 Defender Plus2013 software from? Is it legit? But most importantly, how do we uninstall this annoying program in order to stop all the crazy pop-ups since it’s hard to uninstall from Control Panel?
Win 7 Defender Plus 2013 is a fake anti-virus application designed to deceive PC owners into paying for a useless licensed version. An anti-virus system is supposed to help protect a computer system from being infected with harmful viruses, spyware and other forms of malware. But this Win7 Defender Plus 2013 is a fake program that pretends to be an original program. It belongs to a class of dangerous applications termed as Rean Baravix viruses. This group of viruses appears in different names pretending to be genuine anti-virus or anti-spyware applications. Once they are able to sneak into a computer system they would continue to alert the PC owner of scary amounts and names of viruses that have been detected in the computer system. By doing that, these fake programs try to force computer users to pay for the “registered” full versions so that they can get full protections from then on.
Even if it looks like a legit software, Win 7 Defender Plus 2013 is not an anti-virus program. It doesn’t even have a virus database. The scans and alert warnings are all faked to get the PC user scared. Each time you try to run a program, the fake virus scan would begin and then annoying pop-ups would appear warning and alerting the PC user of detected virus. Win7 Defender Plus 2013 would even prevent some computer programs from running effectively in a bid to get the user to take steps to solve the problem. Once the user gets scared they would want to use this fake application to clear off all the detected threats. As soon as one tries to use this fake application to do so, they will be asked to get the licensed version first. Clicking to the license version page, you would then discover that you need to pay to purchase the fake license version that doesn’t even exist.

Once you pay, you will be scammed as you won’t be able to get any licensed version of program; neither can you be well protected by any software in the future. The money you spend on this fake application will be a total waste of funds.
