What is Content Defender ?

Content Defender is PUP (potentially unwanted program) that could infiltrate your system. It usually install from untrustworthy sites , ads or directly from main site. What is more important and interesting at the same time is that this program/adware claims that will protect you from unwanted content and give you safe browsing . This is definitely not true ,and furthermore it is very dangerous to keep that program installed on your computer . As you might know Adware might be catastrophic for your computer and your personal data . There is a tricky moment in contamination with Content Defender . Wherever you are installing some application or program the installer provides you more than one option of installation . In most cases there are normal and custom installation options. But let’s be honest , almost no one of us is reading the contents of installers and we are trying to install the product faster . The default option is normal installation , but when we install programs on default(normal) installation there might be more than one application that installs in parallel with program that we want to install . So my advice for you is : ALWAYS check your type of installation , it is preferable to choose custom installation and un-tick other unwanted programs . But in case you didn’t knew about that before – don’t worry we are here to help you !
