I just recently downloaded Perfect Defender 2009 to my laptop computer, within a day my laptop started to do some crazy things. I believe this to be a scam and am looking into this some more, not only has it possibly ruined my computer but it cost me $50 too and where ever it came from, it has my credit card info also. If anyone knows anything about this please respond!!!! Thanks

That is a dangerous rogue program. You should be concerned that they have your credit card info. The people that distribute the program are criminals.

Thanks for the info...fortunately I was able to cancel my credit card before anything went through so now I just need to see if my computer can be fixed. I unfortunately cannot do anything with it at this point...everything seems to be frozen, no internet...nothing!

If you can boot into Windows on the infected computer, but can't use it to surf, then you have an option to download MalwareBytes AntiMalware using a different computer and transfering to the infected computer using a CD or other medium.
Once the program is on the infected computer, find the MBAM.exe and rename it by right clicking on the file and choosing rename. Name it maam.com then click on it to run it.
