Fix IEDefender Without Licensed Or Trial Software
I’d recently found myself in the predicament of having Internet Explorer hijacked on my Vista laptop. IEDefender was the culprit.
I find that the most disheartening part of this situation wasn’t the fact that any time you attempt to do anything on your computer, a little window pops up saying you’ve been infected by an “unknown Trojan,” and that you must download a certain piece of free software to be rid of it. No, this was annoying, but not disheartening.
Disheartening was the fact that any software you tried to download to supposedly “fix” the problem would tease you by saying that yes, you are infected – showing you the file(s) in question, along with any additional information. But, here’s the kicker. In order to fix this problem, you must pay $29.95 for the “Full Version,” or the “Licensed Copy” of the program in question. Fuck that!
If I didn’t know any better, it almost seems as though the ones claiming to be able to “protect us” from these threats would be gaining a whole lot by perpetuating these malicious pieces of software. Pay up, $29.95 to fix the problem.
Anyway, the reason I’m writing is to tell you there is hope. A solution! And here it is! Just click the link. The only place on the web that offers a program whose sole purpose was to remove the IEDefender Trojan. No “Trial Version,” no “Nag-Ware,” and no “Licensed Copies.” Just a simple solution for $0 down and $0 per month with 0.0% APR. What a deal!
All of the instructions are on the site. Enjoy your pristine, working Internet Explorer… or at least as pristine as Internet Explorer can get.
I’m offering this advice even though I’m strongly against using Internet Explorer. FireFox is much more reliable and has much more to offer. Funny thing is that IEDefender had no effect on FireFox. Wow, what a surprise…
In fact, I had to use FireFox just to get to the website offering this solution. IEDefender totally disabled my Internet Explorer, rendering my web browsing capabilities useless.
