WinPC Defender.

WinPC Defender is another fake anti-spyware application.
The main goal of this parasite is to ruin and compromise system integrity and security. WinPC Defender is a clone of malicious and infamous application called XP Police Antivirus. This parasite enters the system after the installation of trojan application that pretends to be a video codec.

Once installed and active, WinPC Defender performs fake system scan and basically generates misleading pop-up windows and fake error messages attempting to scare the user and hopping that he will purchase a license of Win PC Defender. However, WinPC Defender is totally worthless application and should be removed immediately after first appearance. It is obvious that this rogue is unable to detect and of course to remove any kind of infections. We strongly recommend to remove WinPC Defender from the system as soon as possible after detection. Removal delay can only worsen the situation.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • 1234.exe
  • pcdefender.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\AppData\
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\ext\stats\{96ad72e4-2e2b-4ffc-a5bb-279c2714af12}
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\winpc defender 
Although it is possible to manually remove WinPC 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.
