Security Shield 2010

Posted: August 23, 2010

Although it strives to present every appearance of legitimacy, Security Shield 2010 is purely a malicious rogue scanner program. Along with advertising fake services and creating inaccurate error messages, Security Shield 2010 may hijack your browse, cause security issues in your system, or disable the functions of important security and system management programs. If you're unlucky enough to find Security Shield 2010 installed on your machine, grab your trusty security scanner software and delete Security Shield 2010 before the day is out. Security Shield 2010's multitude of warnings and interferences are all ploys to turn you into another victim, and there's no need to get along with the scam.

The Story Behind Security Shield 2010

The sad truth is that Security Shield 2010 was a real and useful product in times gone by. Since that time, company ownership has changed hands with poor results. Management decided that marketing a rogue scanner was more profitable than selling the real thing. Security Shield 2010 retains an extremely polished interface and website design, but regrettably Security Shield 2010's actual functions as a program have taken a turn for the worse.

What Security Shield 2010 is Today

As of present times, Security Shield 2010 is now no better than any other rogue software that fakes functions it doesn't actually have. Security Shield 2010 may be packaged with Trojans or otherwise bundled in such a way as to infect computers in secret. Security Shield 2010 and its siblings such as Security Shield will always show a large number of error messages about your computer's health no matter what your system is doing, so these messages don't have an ounce of accuracy! Security Shield 2010 is also no longer able to remove known threats, and there's no reason to buy this cheap imitation when you can get a real anti-malware scanner for no cost at all.

Another unpleasant trait to Security Shield 2010 goes beyond what most rogue software programs are willing to do - Security Shield 2010 serves as a hijacker. As long as Security Shield 2010 is installed, you'll find yourself redirected towards Security Shield 2010's website frequently no matter what you happen to be browsing before that. The primary domain for Security Shield 2010 is www.pcsecurityshield.com.

Security Shield 2010 's Customer Disservice

Customers who've tried to reason with customer support over Security Shield 2010 have found that the supposed employees respond only by trying to sell more junkware. If you're subscribed to Security Shield 2010, your subscription will be renewed automatically for another charge to your credit card. You may have to make a particular effort just to get yourself off the hook if you've been suckered by the Security Shield 2010 scam. If you haven't actually purchased anything yet, then you're in luck - just use basic removal methods for malware, and you're home free.

    I managed to locate and remove the file as follows: In safe mode, I removed all of the files that i could named Security shield, then went to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce "[RANDOM CHARACTERS]" Random characters could be anything, it was "ywnpffq" in my registry, delete this file.

  • EdB says:

    Maybe I caught it early, but I deleted the desktop icon right away and removed it fr 'Add/Remove', then sent it to the 'virus vault' where it can't harm anything. So far, so good. Scan after scan and no more SecurityShield. Also, I copied the virus name to my browser...lotsa info on that virus and others. Removal tool for this virus too, should show up when you 'google' it.
