Soft Soldier (SoftSoldier) is a rogue anti-spyware program that comes from the hackers that created WiniGuard, Trust Soldier, Safe Fighter and Trust Fighter, which are fake security applications. Soft Soldier, through the use of fake popup messages and bogus system scans, attempts to push computer users into purchasing a full version of Soft Soldier making them believe that it will resolve all issues it detected.

Soft Soldier is not able to detect or remove legitimate computer parasites. Instead, Soft Soldier is virtually a bogus security application. Manual remove of Soft Soldier is somewhat difficult to successfully complete.

    A friend of mine got SoftSoldier on her computer, she consulted me about it.
    The removal instruction here did not help, perhaps they have renamed the files, registry keys etc?
