Alfa Defender Pro.

Alfa Defender Pro is rogue anti-spyware that must be stopped before it starts acting with its only intention – rip off the people who fall into its misleading campaign Just like many viruses from this category of malwares, it identifies itself as a reliable and effective program which needs to be purchased for the best protection.
However, paying for Alfa Defender Pro means sharing your money with scammers, so, please, never fall into this scam. Just remove Alfa Defender Pro immediately after noticing its tricky designed alerts and scanners and its unexpected redirections to its purchase webpage.

When it comes to virus distribution methods, Alfa Defender Pro turns out to be spread by Trojans viruses capable to enter every poorly protected machine without being noticed by security programs. Additionally, just after unauthorized intrusion, this scam immediately proceeds to Windows Registry and configures it in such a way that your system will be made to launch the virus just after reboot. Being literally paralyzed, your computer will begin to run continuous system scanners and alerts reporting dangerous viruses, Trojans, root kits or other threats. However, these viruses are harmless and should never be removed because some of them may be needed for your computer’s functionality.
Including these scanners and alerts; you will also find problems with surfing the Internet because Alfa Defender Pro hijacks the browser. All this activity is done for the only reason which is to make you believe your machine is infected. However, only Alfa Defender Pro must be removed from your system because it won’t leave you alone until you pay for its license. To stop its misleading campaign, remove Alfa Defender Pro and all its infected files. We highly recommend using a reputable anti-spyware for that.

  • HKCU\Software\Classes\.exe\shell\open\command “(Default)” = ‘”%Documents and Settings%\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\[random].exe” -a “%1? %*’
Although it is possible to manually remove fake Alfa Defender Pro, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
