When I scan my pc, for viruses, it doesn’t find any, I’m using windows defender please help
Yes - it's very confusing and that's why these rogue programs are so insidious. rizlo29 is using an AV program called Windows Defender, and was trying to remove a rogue program called Digital Protection. Les28 said Windows Defender was not an AV program - but he was of course thinking of the rogue Windows Defender
If rizlo29 is using Microsoft Windows Defender as his or her antivirus protection and hasn't upgraded to Microsoft Security Essentials they are not running an anti-virus program. Defender is an anti spyware program, not an anti virus.
