Security Shield Virus Removal
My main computer has a virus called My Security Shield. Can it be removed??
My Security Shield Virus is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Virus Doctor. This infection is promoted through websites that show advertisements that pretend to be online anti-malware scanners. These scanners will then pretend to scan your computer, and when finished, will state that your computer is infected and that you need to download and install My Security Shield to protect yourself. The truth is that these online scanners are all fake and are only an advertisement. They have no way of knowing what is running on your computer. My Security Shield is a scam and was only created to trick you into purchasing it. You should not purchase it, and if you have, you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charge. It can be removed, and we recommend having a professional do it (either a computer shop or a remote service like ours). We are able to remove this infection. We have one-time service subscriptions as well as yearly subscriptions. There are also online guides to removing this infection but we do not recommend using them unless you have experience in virus removal as they have a tendency to reinfect if not removed completely.
