Security Defender.

Security Defender is a rogue anti-spyware program that displays fake scan results and security alerts on your computer in order to scare you into purchasing it.
This program is typically installed on to your computer through the use of web sites that display advertisements pretending to be an online anti-malware scanner. When this advertisement has finished, it will state that your computer is infected and then prompt you to download and install Security Defender onto your computer.
When installed, Security Defender will be configured to start automatically when Windows starts. Once started, it will scan your computer and list numerous infections, but when you attempt to remove any of them it will state that you first need to purchase the program. As all of the infections it states are present on your computer are false, please ignore anything that it displays and do not purchase the program.

While the program is running it will also display a continuous stream of fake security alerts on your computer that are designed to make you think that your computer has a severe security problem.

Just like the fake scan results, these alerts are also fake and are only being used to scare you into purchasing the program. Therefore, please ignore them.
Without a doubt, Security Defender was created to scare you into thinking your computer has a severe security problem so that you will then purchase this program. For no reason should you purchase Security Defender, and if you already have, you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges stating that the program is a computer infection and a scam.

Location of the infection:
  1. c:\Program Files\Security Defender\Security Defender.dll
  2. c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\56a10a26-dc02-40f3-a4da-8fa92d06b357_.mkv
  3. c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\56a10a26-dc02-40f3-a4da-8fa92d06b357_.avi
  4. c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\56a10a26-dc02-40f3-a4da-8fa92d06b357_.ico
  5. c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\56a10a26-dc02-40f3-a4da-8fa92d06b357_.lnk   
  • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{56a10a26-dc02-40f1-a4da-8fa92d06b357}
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "56a10a26-dc02-40f3-a4da-8fa92d06b357_33"
Although it is possible to manually remove Security Defender, 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.
