Vista Defender 2013 is one more present given to us by cyber criminals. Wrapped in a well thought of design it is nothing more than a rogue antivirus that wants to lighten your wallet. Just like many other fake antivirus it can be distributed using Trojan Horses. As the name itself says, Vista Defender was made for computers having Windows Vista operating system.
It is impossible to notice that a system is infected because fake antivirus starts its work as soon as it gets infiltrated into a machine. You will see that your computer is being scanned by a new antivirus that you did not have before. After a scan is completed, you will see its summary and warnings similar to this one:
Sensitive areas of your system were found to be under attack. Spy software attack or virus infection possible. Prevent further damage or your private data will get stolen. Run an anti-spyware scan now. Click here to start.
It is easy to get tricked for those who had never dealt with fake antivirus before and get worried about a computer being seriously damaged. Remember, if you see a computer scan started without any of your intervention, especially when the tool is not familiar to you, it is a clear sign of a scam. Vista Defender 2013 asks to purchase its full version for any of the infections found to be removed. Do not spend your money. A complete version is worth nothing. It does not have any virus database and cannot detect or remove any system damage. Moreover, the viruses found are made up. The real problem your computer has is a rogue antivirus itself. You should be concerned only with it and how to remove Vista Defender 2013.
