    Not detailed enough though.

    I do NOT recommend that anyone follow these instructions as it will provide you was a false sense of having removed the rogue. Rahul964, you are missing a number of files that PC Defender creates. Furthermore, no instructions for editing the registry should be given without providing proper instructions for creating a backup.

    I have been helping people remove rogues from their computer for over five years. They mutate (WinPC Defender was in fact replaced by WinPC Antivirus at the beginning of this month. Other rogues by the same creator include XP Police Antivirus, IE-Security, WinDefender 2009 and Total Secure 2009.)

    Even the specialized tools, such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, generally do not get all of the files of the recent variants. In addition, depending on other software on the computer (i.e., vulnerable SunJava), many rogue infections are also coupled with Vundo.

    For additional information on rogues, my friend Subratam Biswas co-authored Rogue Antivirus - A Closer Look at Win32/Antivirusxp. Also see the excellent advice provided by WinPatrol developer, Bill Pytlovany in How to Stop AntiVirus 2009.
