ProtectShield is a rogue security program. It may look like an antispyware tool at the first glance, but its functions are completely different.
Protect Shield is not meant to secure a computer. It is meant to make a PC look like it was badly infected and thus make people interested in buying ProtectShield which is nothing but a scam. ProtectShield displays numerous warnings and alerts. If clicked upon, the pop-ups demand paying for keeping the program. Do not let the program trick you into paying for its “features” or something else. ProtectShield is incapable of detecting or deleting malware and it is not worth a nickel.
Protect Shield may hijack web browser and disable real security applications. Remove Protect Shield as soon as possible.
