Windows Web Shield

If you want a reliable and powerful anti-spyware and anti-malware program, Windows Web Shield is the worst choice. Windows Web Shield imitates system scans and displays fraudulent security warnings, according to which, you should register the application as soon as you can to have all the threats removed. The recommendations provided in the warnings are a scam. Windows Web Shield cannot protect you against computer threats, and the sooner you remove it from the PC, the better.

Windows Web Shield may seem to be a very convincing application because of its user interface, scanner and pop-up warnings. However, the fake scanner and pop-up warnings are not the only features of the fraudulent application. The malware program may also display fraudulent browser warnings to prevent you from using the Internet. Moreover, it may disable built-in security programs and other executable files so that you cannot launch any other programs.

In order to get rid of the malfunctions caused by Windows Web Shield, implement a powerful anti-spyware tool. Do not try to remove Windows Web Shield manually because you may skip some important files of the application. Instead, implement SpyHunter, which will easily remove Windows Web Shield and shield the system from other computer threats, including browser hijackers, ransomware infections, rootkits, etc. Before you commence the removal of the rogue, we suggest that you learn a little bit more about this clandestine infection.

Windows Web Shield comes from a family of rogue anti-spyware tools which is know by the names FakeVimes or Rogue.VirusDoctor. Other rogue anti-spyware tools which belong to the family include Windows Internet Guard, Windows Internet Watchdog, Windows Pro Defence Kit and Windows Defence Master. In fact, there are hundreds of unreliable security tools which belong to the faction. Luckily, all of them act in the same way and are represented using the same interface, which is why their detection and removal is now much clearer.

If you do not ensure reliable Windows protection, the misleading Windows Web Shield could corrupt the PC without any warning. The threat may use bundled downloads, false advertising scams, social engineering scams and various other tricks to enter the operating system. Immediately after this, the threat can remove your administrative privileges. Windows Web Shield can block executable files disabling access to web browsers, Task Manager, Registry Editor and other important Windows utilities which could help you delete the infection. Here is a notification which you might be presented with after trying to launch Internet Explorer

If you trust the misleading warnings, pop-up alerts and fictitious scanner reports identifying bogus threats, you might try to use Windows Web Shield for the removal of fictitious malware. Since the program installed onto the PC supposedly is a trial version of the full-feature removal tool, you will be asked to pay from $49.95 to $99.90 for the fake malware remover. Needless to say, this is not a program you should invest in. We recommend that you install a more reliable security tool.
