Security Shield

Security Shield Description

ScreenshotOur malware experts have dug into Security Shield and found that it contains no ability to remove viruses and protect you from malware or any of the other functions that it markets. However, Security Shield has shown a marked proclivity towards traditional rogue security program tactics, including presenting itself as a free product while attempting to steal money by forcing you to register it. Since Security Shield hasn’t even a drop of positive features, you should immediately uninstall Security Shield with a genuine security program to protect your computer and your wallet.

The Emptiness Behind Security Shield’s Shiny Marketing

As far as rogue security products go, Security Shield has an exceptionally resilient and multifaceted marketing scheme. You’ll find glowing references to Security Shield on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, as well as scattered throughout the web in general software storehouse sites. Security Shield claims to be able to perform a multitude of unrelated PC security and maintenance functions, but this isn’t terribly surprising, since, although it would be difficult to program a product that had such functions, it’s a cinch to market functions that aren’t present in the first place! Despite Security Shield’s various claims and the persistently positive marketing veneer that it hides behind, Security Shield isn’t capable of performing even one of the functions that it advertises.

Don’t Let Security Shield’s Fancy Image Seduce You into Giving Away Your Wallet

Like other forms of scamware from the WinWeb Security family, Security Shield’s only real purpose is to steal money and credit card information.

and steps to uninstall SpyHunter.

You should, therefore, avoid giving away either of these in your attempts to remove Security Shield and stop any of the many problems that it may cause while on your computer. Security Shield hasn’t been linked directly to older scamware like Windows Ultra-Antivirus, Dream Scan Soft, Attentive Antivirus, Smart Fortress 2012, Live Essential Platinum, System Tool 2011, Advanced Security Tool 2010, MS Removal Tool, Smart Guard Protection, Security Tool, Live Security Platinum, Antimalware - Proven Antivirus Protection, Personal Shield Pro, Antivirus Security Pro, System Care Antivirus, Antivirus Center, Antivirus System, Microsoft Antivirus 2013, Rogue.System Doctor 2014, Total Security, Futurro Antivirus, Windows Attacks Preventor, Advanced PC Shield 2012, Antivirus Security 2013, Security Shield 2012, Antivirus Security, Winweb Security, Sinergia Cleaner, Windows Secure Kit 2012, Smart Protection 2012, Security Shield/Scanner, Antivirus Security Pro 2014, Windows Secure Kit 2011, System Adware Scanner 2010, Antivirus Security Pro 2013, AntiSpyware Pro 2009, Security Scanner 2012, System Security, System Security 2012, AVASoft Antivirus Professional, Security Sphere 2012, Disk Antivirus Professional, Security Monitor 2012, Total Security 2009, Antivirus Defence, Antiviral Factory 2013 and System Progressive Protection.

Typical rogue security program dangers that Security Shield variants may incorporate include:
  • Creating fake error messages or infection warnings at random opportunities.
  • Blocking programs, such as anti-virus scanners, Notepad or Task Manager, under the fiction that they’ve been infected or damaged.
  • Hijacking your web browser to redirect you to one of Security Shield’s websites, as noted earlier.
  • Setting your web browser’s homepage to a Security Shield website and refusing to let you change it back.
  • Constant requests for you to spend money on Security Shield to fix any or all of the above problems.

However, there’s no need to pay Security Shield’s rather expensive price to delete it; instead, you can delete Security Shield with any sufficiently-competent anti-malware program.

    Security Shield just showed up on my computer last night – how do I get rid of it – I can’t get on the internet without this screen popping up saying I have viruses – no number to call – just a screen on what type of subscription I want and to put in my credit card #.

  • TrickyMisfit says:

    Tried all the solutions below without luck. In C:/Users/[username]/Local Settings I found a file named afimba.exe (Icon is a shield with light green and white squares) that had the date/time about when I contacted this bast*ard. It would not let me delete it. I found the registry entry for it in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node/Microsoft/DirectDraw/ Trying to delete the Key causes a blue screen of death. First delete the values. I then changed the file name of afimba.exe to 0000.exe and it seems to have stopped the program from running. The program can be deleted using the DOS prompt. This malware seems to be self-mutating. Running McAfee virus scan did not detect it.

  • Daniel says:

    I had Security Shield on my computer and it did not appear as any of the files, processes or services that various removal instructions said it would. However, AVG found a file called liquid9529749.exe in C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local\Temp\ which it removed and I now appear to be clean of Security Shield.

  • Fredrik Eriksson says:

    I got this installed from surfing at…… WTF is up with that?

    System restore seems to have solved my problems for now at least. Doing a full system scan and I will try to different malware remvoing softwares. ESET NOD32 might not be good enough since it didnt report anything…

  • Iam Yourhelper says:

    (Username)\Local Settings\Application Data\
    There will be an exe file named something random. The symbol is a green V thingie.
    Open Task Manager and type in the letters. Close the file to make it stop popping up all the time, it will just stop the pop-ups until next time you start Windows.

  • Ian says:

    Security Shield has driven me crazy, opening up porn sites i do not want my kids to see and then not allowing me to use the PC. Malcolm Morris advises to use system restore and he is correct, but Speed is essential. Power down your PC and leave a few minutes. Re open and as soon as you get to the start screen click
    Start – Control Panel – Performance & Maintenance – System Restore.
    If Security Shield starts to scan press STOP on it.
    Choose a date before SS infected you and let the PC restore your PC to a good working date. Seems to have fixed my PC for now. Good luck.

  • KAS says:

    Hi, I’ve just removed this shit from my notebook running XP. Reboot you machine and hold F8, you’ll get different options to boot with, take safe mode with command prompt. Once you’ll get the command prompt, follow the above mentioned 3 steps and you’ll be fine. Type “regedit” on command prompt to get the registry editor. In my case the directory structure was c:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\[RANDOM CHARACTERS].exe.

    Hope this help.
