Do you know what Security Shield 2011 is?
One might clearly start thinking that creators of rogue antispyware never sleep, because here comes another computer threat, ready to put your system through a serious threat. Security Shield 2011 is not a new player in the field it is a new version of other notorious rogues such as Security Shield, Security Tool, System Tool and the like. It masquerades as a reliable security program in hopes of ripping unsuspecting users off. Actually, Security Shield 2011 might be relatively successful in its task, because it looks very much like a real antivirus program.
It has all the usual sections that security software should have – System Scan tab, Protection, Privacy, Update, Settings, and the ultimately golden “Get Full Protection with Security Shield” button at the left bottom corner of its interface. Security Shield 2011 tries to persuade the user to register for the full version of the program by using the fake system scan results. The fake system scan is performed the moment Security Shield 2011 installs itself in the system and initiates certain changes, so that it would load automatically along with the Windows. During the scan, the rogue “detects” a long list of rogues, warms, adware, spyware, backdoors and Trojans. It also gives the file names and details about the threats, for example, which family of malware it belongs to, how the parasite spreads, what is its purpose and so on.
Despite its informative nature, Security Shield 2011 cannot protect you against various threats. All the viruses and parasites detected by the rogue do not exist in your computer, even though the names are not made up. Actually, these parasites Security Shield 2011 warns you about and the rogue itself share something in common – they all are dangerous infections. Security Shield 2011 does not have the ability to protect you against cyber threats. In reality, it slows down your computer, and hinders the overall system performance, until the user things there is no other way to get rid of these symptoms, but to register for the full version of the program.
That is a wrong choice, because with your personal and credit card information exposed, the hackers will easily be able to perform illegal operations and in the end you will be left penniless with a damaged computer to top it all. If you want to avoid that, you need to remove Security Shield 2011 right now. Use this code to “activate” the program:
Once the program is “registered” it is easier to get rid of it. You can either do it manually or automatically, although automatic removal is more efficient, especially if you are not confident of your computing skills. Get yourself a reliable antispyware tool and delete Security Shield 2011 for good.
