Star Defender 3

What is Star Defender 3?

Star Defender 3 is a free casual game distributed via the MyPlayCity installer (the installer will modify the user's web browser home page and search provider to myplaycity.com for IE, FF and Chrome). While the game itself is free to download, uninstalling it will not restore the changes made to the user's browser, although this can be done manually.


A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 12.16 MB (12,754,414 bytes).
