Orange Defender Antivirus

Posted: April 13, 2020

The Orange Defender Antivirus is a piece of software that is able to scan your computer and detect popular malware that may have been able to penetrate your system's defenses. However, the Orange Defender Antivirus is not the best choice when it comes to picking a new anti-malware software suite. While this application can be useful, there are some things about it that are very shady – such as the fact that it is known to display exaggerated search results to convince its users that they should pay for the full version and have their computer cleaned. However, this information may often be misleading – the Orange Defender Antivirus may report minor problems as very serious ones, therefore leaving users with the impression that their computers need to be cleaned urgently.

Another problem with the Orange Defender Antivirus is one of the promotion tricks it uses – it may try to reach more people by being featured in software bundles that you may encounter while downloading freeware applications such as video and audio converters, document viewers, etc. Of course, these bundles give users the opportunity to opt-out of the installation of 3rd-party software, but many users might miss this option and end up installing the Orange Defender Antivirus on their computers.

Once the Orange Defender Antivirus is installed, it may perform an initial system scan that will report the presence of various threats or system issues almost always. Users will then begin to see regular reminders that there are unresolved problems, and they should buy a full license for the Orange Defender Antivirus to take care of the pending issues.

While the Orange Defender Antivirus is a handy application, it is linked to suspicious behavior and deceptive advertising. It is recommended to remove this application from your computer if it keeps prompting you to purchase a license key. Since this is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), its removal can be completed with the help of a trustworthy PC security tool.
