How to Remove BlockDefense | Block Defense Removal



Blockdefense is yet another of these wolves in sheep clothing that make some computer users lives so miserable these days. It is from the same group of malware that includes Trustninja, save soldier, and savedefense. These are part of a group of rogue antivirus programs that are part of the WinGuard group of related malware.

Like so many of these it encourages users to buy based on trumped up fears about files that it claims are threats. (Which it created on the disk.) So, here is how you go about removal of blockdefense


First off you will want to visit the virus removal toolkit and download malwarebytes antimalware. If possible you may be able to install and update this program without needing to visit safe mode or disable blockdefense outright. However, you may need to disable the blockdefense running processes first.

The processes that run as block defense are:

BlockDefense.exe and
BlockDefenseSvc.exe

If you want to go for a manual removal, you may want to boot into safe mode first and or disable the running processes listed above. The files you need to delete in order to remove blockdefense are:

C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersStart MenuProgramsBlockDefense
%ProgramFiles%BlockDefense Software
%ProgramFiles%BlockDefense SoftwareBlockDefense
%ProgramFiles%BlockDefense SoftwareBlockDefenseBlockDefense.exe
%ProgramFiles%BlockDefense SoftwareBlockDefenseBlockDefenseSvc.exe
%ProgramFiles%BlockDefense SoftwareBlockDefenselicense.txt
%ProgramFiles%BlockDefense SoftwareBlockDefenseuninstall.exe
%Documentsroot%All UsersStart MenuProgramsBlockDefense1 BlockDefense.lnk
%Documentsroot%All UsersStart MenuProgramsBlockDefense2 Homepage.lnk
%Documentsroot%All UsersStart MenuProgramsBlockDefense3 Uninstall.lnk
%Documentsroot%All UsersDesktopBlockDefense.LNK

After this I still recommend running a good malware removal tool like malwarebytes antimalware (Mbam). It can help clean out blockdefense and any other traces it may leave on your system.

Update — additional running processes may include:

9zgr7zsq.exe
v4rb9isc.exe
and uninstall.exe

and additional files to remove may include the following:

%user%Local SettingsTemp9zgr7zsq.exe
%user%Local SettingsTempv4rb9isc.exe

%WINDIR%10365not-a9virus53z.dll
%WINDIR%1051zwor94a1.ocx
%WINDIR%11101vi9us57z.ocx
