The numerous, unwanted advertisements displayed by a program named ShieldMe are caused by an annoying adware that may enter your computer by default, bundled with a free software. ShieldMe offers its no-cost application as a tool that will protect your child while browsing the net. However, ShieldMe may trace the PC user's Web browsing and create annoying pop-up advertisements. ShieldMe may record the PC user's unique identifier number, websites visited and viewed, IP address, browser information, OS, search queries entered and other information. ShieldMe may generate and display search, banner, text link, transitional, interstitial, and full page advertisements in a variety of well-known social networking, online shopping or other websites. ShieldMe may also display various coupon advertisements when the computer user is browsing online shopping sites. If the screen of your PC is showing ShieldMe advertisements when you are surfing the Internet, this means that Web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox were corrupted by ShieldMe.
