Proof Defender 2009  seems to be from the Perfect Defender 2009 fake family.  Our scan results from this product picked up zero traces.  While this product when we tested it did not show false posatives it looks to be all a scam. When we did attempt to purchase the product we noticed that the website it sent us to to actually make the sale was a bogus safe cart.  In adition to this the so called hacker safe warningings and so called awards seem to be 100% false.  We could not verify one single shred of so called proof from this  client.  Also the website when going to it directly does not show up.  Only when going there using the register button on the site does a page show.  We list this client as fake and misleading. If this client auto installed on you then please report it below so others know. We urge everyone out there not to purchase this product as it seems totally fake and we consider it a virus.  Follow the guide below to remove this client.
