As you already stated, it won’t allow you to do anything on computer, actually it has hijacked all the useful setting of the computer and taken over all the rights to change them. Anyway, we have the proper solution to solve that issue. please follow the following steps carefully.

Once you got Windows Pro Defence Kit installed into your computer, first of all it changes the main setting of executable file’s registry the “file association”. It linked it to Windows Pro Defence Kit warring message, that means if you try to run any .exe, .lnk(shortcut) files you will get a warring message and the actual .exe file won’t be start. The warring message shows that .exe file has infected with virus, but it’s a fake warring actually that file do not have any type of virus, it’s just shows the same message on all executable files when you run. Do please ignore all the warning message which comes from Windows Pro Defence Kit program because all the warning messages are totally fake.
