Iron Defense.

Iron Defense is a poorly made rogue security tool. It’s a typical rogue anti-spyware.
It pretends to detect infections in order to gain a purchase. Iron Defense belongs to the army of fake tools such as IronDefender, Safety Guard and Protect Soldier. It is able to imitate system scan and several types of notifications. The fake alerts usually report numerous threats and demands purchasing Iron Defense for fixing the problem. Do not trust a single word on Iron Defense’s messages! The fraud is not able to actually detect a thing; the alerts are there for luring people into giving their money away. Delete Iron Defense as soon as possible.

The most typical software removal method is to remove Iron Defense by using "Add or Remove Programs" service. However there may be hidden Iron Defense files, running processes and registries in your computer, so Iron Defense may recreate all other files after reboot.
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • F0E84.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. c:\Program Files\FDFCA\
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IronDefense
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\IronDefense
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "F0E84.exe"
Although it is possible to manually remove Iron Defense, 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.
