Hard at work even over the holiday, Emsisoft’s Malware Research team has just detected a new variant within the GuardSoftware Protector Rogue re-emergence known as Windows Premium Shield.
Like Windows Expert Console, Windows Cleaning Toolkit and Windows Active Hotspot, “Windows Premium Shield” is yet another rogue scanning application designed to trick users into installation by leading them to believe their computer is infected.
As has been the case with its predecessors, Windows Premium Shield begins infection by restarting your computer and then locking Windows until you ‘purchase’ the rogue in full.
Fortunately, Windows Premium Shield is fully prevented by Emsisoft Anti-Malware; and, anyone else who may have been infected can view full removal instructions at the Emsisoft Support Forum.
Have another Great (Anti-Malware Free) Day!
