How to remove Windows Defence Center virus. Automatic and manual removal guide

If your PC has ever been infected with Windows Defence Center you probably know what it really is to have this junk on your workstation. No doubt, Windows Defence Center is a scam application that is forcing users to buy it through threatening them of availability of thousands of infections supposedly detected on their PCs and promising the only remedy for their elimination on the condition of purchase of this rogue program called Windows Defence Center.

Windows Defence Center, similar to its predecessors, uses fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alerts for its infiltration inside of the machine. Then, when the installation process is successfully accomplished, the scam Windows Defence Center starts its evil activity by first running fake scans accompanied by all sorts of annoying popups and other ads warning about several errors inside of your machine. The program would also hijack your browser resulting in your inability to run your Internet browser. Additionally, you would not be able to run many programs of your choice, cause this scam prevents you from launching the exe-files. The final trick of this malware called Windows Defence Center is the offer for you to buy it as a remedy for elimination of all supposedly identified threats.

By this time you should be wise enough to understand that Windows Defence Center is definitely not the program you want to have on your system.

Below please find some of our pieces of advise describing to you how you can get rid of this junk named Windows Defence Center. There are two ways of this problem being solved: first one is downloading the program called GridinSoft Trojan Killer, or you may remove it manually if you are capable enough of doing this.

Before downloading and running GridinSoft Trojan Killer for removal of Windows Defence Center several additional preparatory steps need to be done. This is necesary, because Windows Defence Center blocks your Internet connection, and you will not be able to run GridinSoft Trojan Killer. In order to prevent this blockage make sure that your Operating System is tuned up in such a mode that hidden files and folders of your PC are viewable. Go to the folder %User Profile%\Application Data. Important! Depending on the Operating System of your computer, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7. In other words, the folder that should be opened is as follows, depending on the operating system: %SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data for Windows XP and %SysDrive%Users[Current User]Application Data for Windows Vista/7. In this folder there will be the main executable file of Windows Defence Center, having some random name. Rename the above-mentioned executable file into some other name of your choice and restart your computer. Upon the system restart Windows Defence Center will no longer block your Internet browser. Download the latest version of GridinSoft Trojan Killer to your infected computer, install it and run it.
