My Shield Security
Should you be in the market for a powerful and effective security application which will keep your PC safe from the many online threats facing it then you will certainly want to give My Shield Security a miss. This terrible rogue antispyware application is good at tricking unsuspecting users into believing in it and paying for its worthless software. Despite what My Shield Security would like you to believe, it does not have the ability to detect or remove any type of threat from the system, and is really nothing more than a malicious infection in itself.
My Shield Security makes use of established forms of infection which may range from using browser hijacking websites to fake online malware scanners. Of late, it has also been reported that My Shield Security makes use of infected online flash ads as part of its online marketing campaign, and also that it bundles its Trojans and malware together with other legitimate third party downloads.
It uses genuine looking Microsoft icons in its interface, in a further attempt to convince its prospective victims of its legitimacy. It will encourage the user to “Activate Ultimate Protection” so that My Shield Security can protect the PC against identity theft, viruses, malware and other threats.
If the user does not immediately pay for My Shield Security, it will initiate a fake system security scan which will yield bogus results of fake threats being present on the system. Some of these fake threats are listed as:
Symptoms associated with My Shield Security range from blocked Internet connections to extremely poor system performance and erratic system behavior. It will also block the user from launching his applications. This is all done in an effort by My Shield Security to further annoy and panic the user into thinking his PC is under attack, as well as to prevent the user from running or downloading an application which may be able to detect and remove My Shield Security from the system.
In order to regain control of your PC, destroy My Shield Security immediately. This is best achieved by using the removal power of a genuine and powerful security tool. This will also effectively protect your PC from future attacks.
