Posted by Steven in Computer Help, Security Shield on 02 7th, 2012

Security Shield is another malicious program that many PC users have been complaining of. Security Shield is known to conduct itself in a way similar to legitimate security programs. The main issue with Security Shield is that it does not complete its tasks of detecting and removing malware. Security Shield will render pop-up warnings and system scan results that are actually bogus. Then it claims that it will remove all of the detected threats if a PC user purchases a registered version of Security Shield. Unfortunately, it will not do anything if purchased.

Security Shield is basically a scam. PC users who run across it are strongly urged to utilize a method for removing the Security Shield app and any of its associated files. This process is easily performed if the PC user uses a trusted antispyware app to detect and remove Security Shield. Manual removal is also possible but puts users at risk of causing damage to the Windows registry. Moreover, Security Shield has many associated files that flood different areas of a PCs hard drive that could cause additional issues.

How Can You Remove Security Shield?

What is XP Antivirus 2012 and How to Remove XP Antivirus 2012 Rogue Anti-Spyware Application from Your PC 13
Jul
Posted by Steven in Computer Help, XP Antivirus 2012 on 07 13th, 2011

XP Antivirus 2012 is a fake anti-spyware program that is well known for promoting purchase of a full edition of XP Antivirus 2012 through vigorous Windows attention notifications. The XP Antivirus 2012 pop-up messages look very convincing which is why many PC users have succumb to the XP Antivirus 2012 program by paying upwards of $80 for it not knowing that it will not live up to its promises.

What does XP Antivirus 2012 do?

XP Antivirus 2012 was created with the main purpose of extorting money from computer users. This process is accomplished after the installation of XP Antivirus 2012 occurs. The installation of XP Antivirus 2012 may come automatically through a Trojan horse that is installed on a PC user’s system without their knowledge. Sometimes surfing a free porn site will allow this to happen. In other cases PC users may have downloaded some type of software from a P2P (peer 2 peer) network not knowing it was laced with malware.

After XP Antivirus 2012 starts to load during startup of Windows, it presents users with a plethora of alert notifications that look rather legitimate to the untrained eye. These notices along with system scan results, are all fabricated by the XP Antivirus 2012 program. After the trust of XP Antivirus 2012 is gained through these bogus messages and system scan results, the computer user is apt to click on one which may redirect them to a purchase site for XP Antivirus 2012. If purchased, XP Antivirus 2012 will not remove any type of malware nor will it resolve previously stated PC issues. The best thing to do when presented with XP Antivirus 2012 is to take immediate action to remove it.

How Can You Remove XP Antivirus 2012?

XP Antivirus 2012 can be very difficult to manually remove if you are an inexperienced computer user.

‘Windows Easy Supervisor’ Fails to ‘Easily’ Detect and Remove Malware 4
Jul
Posted by Steven in Computer Help on 07 4th, 2011

A number of computer users have unfortunately run into an application called Windows Easy Supervisor which has been verified by many security research sites to be a fake ant-spyware and computer repair program. Windows Easy Supervisor is known to render fake system scans and several annoying pop-up alerts that keep computer users from utilizing their PC like they normally would. Even still, computer users who have encountered Windows Easy Supervisor are not able to view web pages like they normally would mainly because Windows Easy Supervisor keeps rendering alert notifications plastered across their screen.

Windows Easy Supervisor is not a viable solution to detecting and removing any type of computer malware including viruses, spyware, and Trojans. Windows Easy Supervisor can be compared to another popular fake security program called Fake Microsoft Security Essentials. The creators of Windows Easy Supervisor want to make it look like a program that should be purchased so it can remove all of the nasty parasites that are supposedly on your computer. The problem with that is two-fold because Windows Easy Supervisor is not able to remove parasites and any parasite that it says it has detected is actually fabricated. Computer security experts will suggest that users faced with Windows Easy Supervisor should take immediate action to utilize a trusted and updated anti-spyware or anti-virus program to safely remove Windows Easy Supervisor.

How Can You Remove Windows Easy Supervisor?

Windows Easy Supervisor can be very difficult to manually remove if you are an inexperienced computer user. Not to mention, Windows Easy Supervisor has been known to populate the Windows Registry with many different entries and removing the wrong entries could render a PC damaged or useless.

What is ‘Essential Cleaner’ and Why Should Computer Users Remove It from their PC? 22
May
Posted by Steven in Computer Help, Essential Cleaner on 05 22nd, 2011

Essential Cleaner has shocked a number of computer users when they found out that it was not a legitimate security program. Essential Cleaner is rather a rogue anti-spyware application that has been touted as a program that will protect a PC from malware in addition to removing malware parasites. Not only does Essential Cleaner fail to perform those actions, but it entices computer users to purchase a registered version for a price of $60 to $80. Spending that much on a so-called security app for your PC should resolve just about any malware issue, right? Not exactly!

Essential Cleaner has a conspicuous interface that closely resembles trusted security programs that can be purchased at your local electronics or computer store. Essential Cleaner was designed this way by hackers on purpose for the task of tricking gullible computer users. In doing so, hackers are able to mislead computer users into buying Essential Cleaner in hopes that it would actually remove malware. Unfortunately, after purchasing Essential Cleaner, all a computer user will get are repeated pop-up alerts and bogus system scan results. At no time is Essential Cleaner able to remove malware even if you opt for the expensive $80 version with the so-called $19.95 ‘Lifetime Premium Support’. Essential Cleaner is nothing more than a bogus security program.

By removing Essential Cleaner and all other related files, you would have eliminated the threat and risk of real malware. All malware parasites that Essential Cleaner supposedly finds are fabricated results. Do not ever trust Essential Cleaner under any condition!

How Can You Remove Essential Cleaner?

Essential Cleaner can be very difficult to manually remove if you are an inexperienced computer user. Not to mention, Essential Cleaner has been known to populate the Windows Registry with many different entries and removing the wrong entries could render a PC damaged or useless. The use of a reputable antispyware or antivirus tool is recommended to safely remove Essential Cleaner from your Windows computer.
