Win 7 Defender Firewall Alert is a fake anti-virus program which is created by cyber criminals to swindle Internet users’ money away. It keeps attempting to convince you that your computer is seriously infected by dangerous virus and you need to pay to buy its license key to activate it to clean the computer. The appearance of this virus looks professional and is similar to other famous and legitimate antivirus programs, which make you think that it may be able to do something useful to solve your computer problem. Actually, it is a fraud with a false system scan result on your computer. It has no features required for a legitimate antivirus program.
Win 7 Defender Firewall Alert gets into your computer system with the assistance of Trojans which you may get from downloading unknown “free” software, opening unknown email attachments or visiting malicious websites. Once it infiltrates into your computer successfully, it can modify Windows Registry and other important system files, then sets itself to start automatically every time the system boots up. Furthermore, this virus is also capable of hijacking your browser and preventing programs including your antivirus from launching, which will totally mess up your computer. All of these things are done just to frighten you. Some users may really believe that the conditions of their computers are really dangerous so that they pay to this virus.
