Do you know what Security Shield 2012 is?
Rogues usually come in blocks and there is one particular group of rogues that share the name “Security Shield”. Security Shield 2012 is one of them and it is the newest version of Security Shield – a rogue that belongs to the Rogue.Winwebsec cluster of fake antispyware applications. Security Shield 2012 does not differ much from its predecessors. It comes with intention to rip you off, and does all it can to achieve this goal – it displays fake security notifications, performs fake system scan, blocks various executables and even does not allow you to open your Internet browser, so that you would not be able to find means to remove Security Shield 2012.
Security Shield 2012 tries to persuade the user to buy the license for the fake program by imitating the behavior of a popular antivirus program. Outwardly, it does everything what a real security program is supposed to do – it “detects” malware and informs you about the potential harm they can pose to your computer. The pop-up messages sent by Security Shield 2012 look rather professional and it is of no surprise that a lot of users panic when they see these notifications appear on their computer’s screen:
Warning: Your computer is infected
Windows has detected spyware infection!
Click this message to install the last update of Windows security software…
Security Monitor: WARNING!
Attention: System detected a potential hazard (TrojanSPM/LX) on your computer that may infect executable files. Your private information and PC safety is at risk. To get rid of unwanted spyware and keep your computer safe you need to update your current security software.

Due to the fact that Security Shield 2012 blocks various programs and even the Internet browser it might be rather tricky to get rid of this rogue. In fact, when nothing works but Security 2012, it might actually seem that purchasing the license might be most efficient way to get your programs back, but there is another option, and that includes “registering” Security Shield 2012 with the following registration code:
“Activation” will disarm Security Shield 2012 and will be as effective as it has been on the previous versions of the rogue, including Security Shield 2012, Security Sphere 2012, Security Tool and others. However, your job is not over just yet. While Security Shield 2012 is stunned you have to acquire a trustworthy antispyware application that will help you to delete Security Shield 2012 at once. Do what is best for your system and your financial security; get rid of Security Shield 2012 as soon as you can.
In non-techie terms:
Security Shield 2012 is a rogue antispyware application and it will destroy your computer’s system if you do not remove it in time. Security Shield 2012 does not have the ability to detect and erase malware, it only wants your money, and so the sooner you get rid of this program, the better.
