You can boot into Safe Mode, then remove /Applications/Mac Defender.app, and the Login Item in System Preferences -> Accounts -> Login Items.
That will remove it

SIMPLY READ THE ARTICLE FROM INTEGO SECURITY.

This is a simple login app that can be easily removed. If you hadn't typed your admin password to allow it to install, you wouldn't have this thing. Not trying to lay blame, just want to allay fears that this thing installs itself. It does not.

Thanks! for the tip! My kids downloaded this thing and I was freaking out! Very simple fix. It worked. Thanks again!
