Do you know what Web Sentinel is?
Web Sentinel is not a popular newspaper, it is a fake anti-spyware program that comes from the Your Web Safe family of rogue anti-spyware programs. Web Sentinel does not protect you from parasites or spyware, it actually is the spyware. Web Sentinel like it's Your Web Safe family of infections, uses a bold tactic for getting you to purchase the full version of the Web Sentinel program. Web Sentinel uses a locker.exe file to display a purchase screen that cannot be closed unless the Web Sentinel program is actually purchased.
Action should be taken to remove Web Sentinel if you ever get to the infamous product purchase screen that is "locked" in place unless you purchase the program. Have you ever seen a screen that is locked on your desktop that requires an action that you do not want to perform? Web Sentinel and any other program in its Your Web Safe family should not be downloaded, installed or purchased under any circumstances.
