This is the information that you can see in Personal Shield Pro's scan window. If you have come as far as the fake system scan, then you are definitely seriously infected with this rogue. Personal Shield Pro looks very much like a reliable security tool, but it is designed to look like that so it would be able to persuade you to buy its services. The services which do not exist not even a bit. By purchasing Personal Shield Pro, you would only lose your money and allow cyber criminals to hack into your bank account.

In a nutshell Personal Shield Pro falsely claims that your computer has been infected with a whole list of malware. So, if there is no viruses in your computer in spite of what this rogue is telling you, then you don't need to use Personal Shield Pro to remove them. In fact, the only thing you must remove is Personal Shield Pro itself.

You must have noticed already the number of security notifications you are receiving from Personal Shield Pro. These messages are about false detections of viruses and errors which you should ignore. Have you also noticed that Personal Shield Pro has a logo on its interface that impersonates the logo of a famous antivirus system? Everything that you see is done to convince that it is worth paying for Personal Shield Pro, but it is not. This rogue is a robber and a computer system killer.

Personal Shield Pro also blocks other security programs in order to remain in your system for a longer period of time. It will block the security program and display the following message:

Application cannot be executed. The file taskmgr.exe is infected. Please activate your antivirus software.
