My Security Shield

My Security Shield Description

Type: Rogue Anti-Virus Program

ScreenshotMy Security Shield is a rogue security program that should not be trusted. My Security Shield can enter a system via malicious online scanners, malicious websites or sneaky Trojans. Once My Security Shield is inside a system, My Security Shield will create fake malware files and run a bogus system scan which will detect those files as dangerous malware that can only be removed with the "full version" of My Security Shield. Users are advised to ignore all security notifications displayed by My Security Shield and have the rogueware removed from your system upon detection.

My Security Shield, a new member of the FakeVimes family, was discovered near the beginning of August of 2010. Since that time, its designers have created other malicious applications very similar to that of My Security Shield which use the same aggressive tactics that push computer users into purchasing a full edition of a bogus security application. Among My Security shield family members are Virus Melt, Presto TuneUp, Fast Antivirus 2009, Extra Antivirus, Windows Security Suite, Smart Virus Eliminator, Packed.Generic.245, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Enterprise Suite, Enterprise Suite, Additional Guard, PC Live Guard, Live PC Care, Live Enterprise Suite, Security Antivirus, My Security Wall, CleanUp Antivirus, Smart Security, Windows Protection Suite, Windows Work Catalyst.

My Security Shield is also known to display a specific type of alert message that not only warns of a detected threat but says the affected PC has a 'memory access problem'. Not only is this message wrong, but it could be correct in the since that My Security Shield actually causes damages.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot

    My security shield infected my wifes computer. I tried Norton, Mcafee, Spybot, and even the MS scanner software and none could remove the malware until I tried this software. It worked great. I highly recommend it........

    This is the worst software in the world. You use it once and remove and out of nowhere in installs a new version and locks up the machine. They must this this is funny, but the whole thing sucks and so does their software. Getting rid of it is a pain in the a**, just like the software itself.

  • Simon Dekker:

    I ran into Spy Shield and it took control of my computer with continuous fake pop-up security message. The computer was rendered unusable. To get rid of the malicious spyware, I booted the machine in the safe mode with network capability. When booting press the F-8 key several times until a text prompt comes up. Use the arrow keys to select the safe mode with network. Hit the return key and the system boots. Note the word "safe" in the upper portion of the screen.

    Use another browser like Safari, Chrom or Firefox to search for Spyhunter. Once you are on SpyHunters website, from Enigma, type in "Spy Shield" and down load the Spyhunter software. Run the scan and a malicious "run once" will be found. Make sure this routine is disabled in SpyHunter. The Spy Shield problem goes away. SpyHunter worked for me. I have used the product for several months now and the support is excellent.
