Soft Barrier is the latest in rogue anti-spyware applications. Soft Barrier is a clone of rogue applications Shield Safeness, Soft Stronghold, Soft Veteran, SoftCop, Trust Soldier, Safe Fighter, Trust Cop and Secure Warrior. What Soft Barrier does is make use of fictitious system scans and fabricated system alert messages to coerce users into believing that Soft Barrier has found several parasites on the computer system, and will further suggest that the user purchase the full version of Soft Barrier to remove these supposed PC threats.
One should always be aware of this tactic employed by rogue applications, as Soft Barrier is unable to detect or eliminate security threats, in addition to all types of spyware. The presence of Soft Barrier could only cause damage to the infected system - if it is not removed immediately upon detection. Manual detection and removal of Soft Barrier has proven to be quite difficult for those individuals not familiar with the registry files of a computer system, therefore it is recommended to use a legitimate antispyware tool to remove Soft Barrier as soon as possible.
