Secure Your Machine - Remove My Security Shield

It's only natural that you might want to protect your computer from problem programs in  a time where viruses and spyware often outnumber legitimate programs, but the reality is that all of the programs marketed to do just that aren't as reliable as one might hope. My Security Shield is one of these, and while it won't provide you with the level of protection you need, it will likely provide you with some level of annoyance.

What is My Security Shield?

You may have heard My Security Shield called a rogue antispyware program, and there's a good reason for that. Security experts have defined rogue antispyware programs as those that mislead you into believing you're actually purchasing real security software without providing the resources you need to actually protect your machine. While My Security Shield may seem like a good solution to all of your needs, the scans it provides and resolutions it can offer simply won't have the backing of a more legitimate security program. The program itself is related to another similar program called VirusDoctor, and there are four different things you may notice right away if it is installed on your machine.

1. Initially, the most prominent sign is the scanning window itself. It will pop up almost right after you start your machine and throughout the day. Each time, it will continually test your computer to find viruses or other problems. This can be quite scary, because it does come back with a number of concerning results. It is, however, essential that you understand the program was designed to find these results whether you actually have them installed or not. It actually creates those files for you to find during its scan process, so you're not likely to find any of those same files with any good security program.

2. In addition to those scans, you're also going to notice some security warnings. They appear like pop up ads or Windows notification balloons might. Most of them say something like Memory Access Problem, or Access Conflict, or even Virus Detected. All of them suggest that upgrading your security protection by purchasing My Security Shield will solve the problem immediately, and clicking on any of these ads will lead you right to a website where you can purchase the full version of the program. Here is the text of a few of these ads.

3. As with most of these kinds of applications, you can expect to notice some very sluggish performance on your machine as well. Because My Security Shield tends to eat your system's resources, you won't really get the performance you might expect. It will be very slow to start as well as to switch between the various programs you're trying to run. Even opening a new application window can prove cumbersome at times.

4. The biggest problem with this program is the level of legitimacy it presents. It looks just like any other software security suite. Across the top, you'll see a menu bar that resembles almost anything the Windows company puts out, and the entire left side of the panel looks like your control panel. Even the scan window itself says "Windows Advanced Security Center" at the top and puts forth some pretty scary warnings in the scanning pane. Despite appearances, though, this is not a Windows based program, and you should remove it at your earliest opportunity.

Can My Security Shield Be Taken Care of By Antivirus Software?

Even if you have antivirus software installed, you still won't be protected from My Security Shield. This program is not a virus, and what many don't understand is that antivirus software is only designed to take care of those issues that are designated as viruses. As a result, the only option is to get a comprehensive security suite to take care of My Security Shield and other similar programs.

Removing My Security Shield

You can remove My Security Shield, but you'll have to decide which is the best way to handle that. You have two primary options in this process. The first is to handle the removal on your own. In most cases, you'll have to delete several program files, then you'll have to enter your computer's registry and delete the affected registry keys. The real problem with this method, however, is that it can be quite dangerous if you're not exactly sure what you're doing. Editing the registry of your computer is a very delicate task, and hitting the wrong key or eliminating the wrong entry will only cause you further problems. As a result, if you're not really experienced in this arena, it's best to leave this removal method to the professionals. A list of affected files and registry keys does appear at the end of this article.

Your other option to remove My Security Shield is to let a respected antispyware program handle it for you. There are many of these on the market, but before you download the first one you see, make certain that you do a bit of research so that you actually get a good program, not rogue antispyware. Two great options are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) and Enigma's SpyHunter. No matter what program you decide to install, your task will then be to ensure it's properly installed on your system, update it, then set it to scan your computer. It should immediately pick up My Security Shield and eliminate it from your computer. Make certain that you set it up to update regularly and scan at least weekly to pick up any additional problematic programs you may encounter in the future.

No matter how you finally choose to remove this program, it's essential to do so as soon as possible. After all, because it has the ability to open security holes within your system, you could be putting yourself at risk of getting additional programs that My Security Shield won't be able to protect you from. Installing a solid security suite as soon as you clean your computer is an absolute must to get maximum protection.
