WiniShield Image

WiniShield is a rogue security application that is part of the FakeSmoke family. Through many aggressive and misleading tactics, WiniShield attempts to force computer users into purchasing a full version of WiniShield. The Trojan called Zlob may be responsible for installing the WiniShield application without permission from the computer user.
