Title: Desktop Defender 2010 Also known as: DesktopDefender2010, DesktopDefender 2010, Desktop Defender2010
Type: Spyware
Severity scale:  (72 / 100)
 

Desktop Defender 2010 is a misleading anti-virus application from the same family as Contraviro malware. The rogue program reports false or exaggerated system security threats and displays fake security warnings to convince you that your PC is baldy infected with Trojans, spyware and other malware. The main goal of DesktopDefender2010 is to trick you into purchasing the full version of the application which actually does not even exist. This is a scam! Do not pay for this bogus software and uninstall Desktop Defender 2010 from your computer as soon as possible.

The graphical user interface of Desktop Defender 2010 is quite impressive. It uses Windows Vista style and design elements to make it look more reliable. The rogue program ripped Clam AntiVirus database. ClamAV is an open source anti-virus toolkit. Once installed, DesktopDefender 2010 will imitate a system scan and report a variety of infections. The scan results are of course false. This parasite claims that you have to purchase the full version of the program to remove the threats, because free version is only a scanner. Obviously, you shouldn’t buy it. Another very important thing is that this program modifies the LSP chain by adding siglsp.dll file. If you remove this file without restoring the LSP chain this will break your Internet connection.

What is more, Desktop Defender 2010 will constantly display fake security alerts and notifications from the Windows Task bar stating that your computer is seriously infected or has many privacy/security problems. The fake security alerts state:


Possible loss of data!
Too many privacy violation attempts on your computer!
The details about your credit card, post address, phone numbers from the submitted form can be lost.
