My Security Shield should never be trusted because it is a typical rogue anti-spyware which has many similarities to the earlier released Security Master AV, My Security Engine or Virus Doctor. However, you may also be having problems with its newer version Security Shield which has slightly different GUI. Just like any other scam, MySecurityShield offers to purchase its license by telling people that they have tons of viruses on their PCs. In reality, all the files reported by this scam as infections are nonexistent system files or the ones that My Security Shield creates after getting on board. Remember that these “viruses” should be ignored instead of being removed from the PC, here is their list:
Undoubtedly, My Security Shield is designed to mislead people into thinking their computers are infected and sell its “license”. So trying to annoy them to death, malware will also display numerous pop-up ads, alerts and notifications that will all announce viruses. However, in reality such messages should be ignored just like the scan results. Some of alerts look like that:
Warning! Access conflict detected!
An unidentified program is trying to access system process address space.
Process Name: AllowedForm
Warning! Identity theft attempt detected
Memory access problem
WindowsErrorForm has encountered a problem at address 0x1FC408.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If you see this error again, operational information can be irrevocably lost.
Warning! Virus detected
Threat Detected: Trojan-PSW.VBS.Half
Description: This is a VBScript-virus. It steals user’s passwords.
My Security Shield will never leave you alone because it is usually set to start just after Windows is launched. If you have it on board, you are most likely to have “caught” this threat through a Trojan or directly from some kind of fraudulent website. The one and the best solution after noticing My Security Shield on PC would be running a scan with completely trustful anti-spyware and removing its files. Of course, you can delete My Security Shield manually, but you should be very careful. If you have already purchased this fake security app, contact you credit card company to dispute the charges.
My Security Shield might hijack other websites using hosts file. It is critical to empty hosts file and double check security settings during this rogue removal.
