What is Advanced Defender
Advanced Defender is a scam in the form of a rogue security software. It tries to sell its paid version to you claiming that it can clean your computer from all sorts of malware and spyware.
But all these claims are false. Advanced Defender does not have the capabilities to protect your computer. It takes the help of fraudulent tricks to force you to purchase its paid version. It is helped by some trojans already present in your computer to install its traces, which show you repeated warning messages and fake alarm results.
Please do not fall in its trap and waste your money.
