ScreenshotTotal Defender or TotalDefender, is a program that may disguise itself to appear to be Windows security program. After extensive research it was found that Total Defender is not more than a rogue anti-spyware application. Total Defender, when installed, will perform illicit actions to get you to purchase a registered version of the Total Defender program. Total Defender may do this through many annoying popups and system alert messages plastered all over your screen.

Total Defender may come from an ActiveX control or fake video codec which might install Total Defender automatically without your permission. Total Defender is a very misleading program that should be detected and safely removed with a spyware scan tool.
