Do you know what Secure File Shredder is?
Secure File Shredder is a fake security program that does not really offer a "shred" of protection against infections on the internet. Secure File Shredder is known to be spread fast through a malicious website or download of a Trojan through a fake video codec or other malware. Secure File Shredder and any website responsible for promoting this useless program such as www.securefileshredder.com should be avoided in any situation to prevent having Secure File Shredder installed without your permission.
After Secure File Shredder is installed then it starts to perform many functions just like a rogue anti-spyware program does. It displays popups or warning messages to make you feel like you must purchase the full Secure File Shredder program to resolve certain issues.
In non-techie terms: Secure File Shredder does not remove parasites, delete harmful files or fix any system issues. Secure File Shredder is a worthless program that should never be installed, downloaded or purchased under any circumstances.
