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.

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 Futurro Antivirus, Total Security 2009, Antivirus Security Pro, Microsoft Antivirus 2013, System Progressive Protection, Windows Secure Kit 2011, AntiSpyware Pro 2009, Live Essential Platinum, Antivirus Security 2013, Antiviral Factory 2013, Security Shield/Scanner, Smart Guard Protection, Live Security Professional, AVASoft Antivirus Professional, Security Scanner 2012, Advanced Security Tool 2010, Antivirus Security, Windows Attacks Preventor, Antivirus Center, System Security 2012, Antivirus Defence, Smart Fortress 2012, MS Removal Tool, Windows Ultra-Antivirus, Attentive Antivirus, System Adware Scanner 2010, Rogue.System Doctor 2014, Smart Protection 2012, Antivirus Security Pro 2013, Security Monitor 2012, Dream Scan Soft, Total Security, Security Tool, System Care Antivirus, Windows Secure Kit 2012, Disk Antivirus Professional, Antivirus System, Winweb Security, System Tool 2011, Personal Shield Pro, Security Shield 2012, Sinergia Cleaner, Live Security Platinum, Antivirus Security Pro 2014, Antimalware - Proven Antivirus Protection and System Security.

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.
