Personal Security Sentinel

Developers of rogue antispyware applications such as Personal Security Sentinel have no squabbles about sinking to the lowest depths of depravity in their campaign to defraud honest consumers who care about their systems’ security out of their hard earned money. This is proven by the vitriolic intensity behind the attack of Personal Security Sentinel, which hails from the FakeVimes family of rogues which includes the likes of Internet Security Suite and Internet Antivirus 2011.

It is obvious from the company this rogue keeps that users infected with it will need to get rid of Personal Security Sentinel if they value the safety and health of their systems. Following the same route of attack as most other rogue antispyware applications, Personal Security Sentinel will start its attack off on the PC by falsely informing the user that his PC is under attack from various harmful Internet viruses.

This falls in line with Personal Security Sentinel’s attack on the system as it aims to create panic in the user, afterwards offering him a seemingly easy and legitimate solution to his troubles. If the user does not go on to pay for a licensed copy of Personal Security Sentinel, this rogue will cripple the system and render it ultimately unusable and utterly useless.

Users who did not delete Personal Security Sentinel in time have reported on various distressing symptoms, which include being denied access to their Desktop items, being unable to connect to the Internet and ultimately an utterly slowed down system.

Do not take chances with Personal Security Sentinel, and do not become its next victim. Eradicate Personal Security Sentinel from your system by making use of the removal power of a genuine and powerful security application. This will not only effectively and permanently destroy Personal Security Sentinel, but will offer future protection against similar threats.
