Advanced PC Shield 2012
Advanced PC Shield 2012 is not a legitimate security application. In fact this rogue antispyware application was never designed with the intent to protect your PC or offer you any benefit whatsoever. Criminal developers developed this rogue to act as a vehicle with which they would rip honest, hardworking consumers off. Of course Advanced PC Shield 2012 will do everything in its power to convince its victims of its legitimacy, but at the end of the day this rogue does not have the ability to detect or remove any type of threat from the system. Even though its title should make you trust this program, that would be a very bad thing to do, the reason being that you might end up losing your money.
This rogue uses any tactic at its disposal to facilitate its surreptitious infiltration of the system. This can range from using seditious browser hijacking websites which make use of drive-by download tactics to using bogus online malware scanners. Whichever tactic is decided on, Advanced PC Shield 2012 will not seek the user’s permission before rooting itself in the system.
Once installed, Advanced PC Shield 2012 configures your operating system in a way that it allows the rogue to load automatically whenever you load your computer. It constantly sends you messages about supposed infections ruining your computer, and does not allow you to work properly with your machine, slowing it down, and blocking your favorite applications. Advanced PC Shield 2012 makes it seem like you are terribly infected with various viruses and it even performs a full system “scan” to determine the main problem your system is experiencing. Advanced PC Shield 2012 says that your security level is low and it finds a whole list of “parasites” that are there in your computer. Do not forget that the scan and the results are fake, and they are only there to scare you into buying this absolutely worthless program.
Users whose systems were infected with Advanced PC Shield 2012 complained about being unable to connect to the Internet, as well as not being allowed to launch programs on the infected PC, saying that they are infected and they must be closed in order to keep the rest of your system safe. Whenever the rogue terminates a program, it sends the following message:
Application has been attacked with the virus!
