Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why can't I remove Security Shield
Security Shield is an
extremely complex spyware infection. It places a large number of
random files and registry entries on your computer. Because there are
also legitimate Windows files that are random strings of numbers and letters,
knowing which files to delete is near impossible (I know because I
tried!) and if you delete a legitimate file that your computer needs this
could lead to further problems, including causing your computer to
Security Shield also has the ability to recreate itself - meaning that unless
all traces are removed entirely, it will simply reinstall itself each and every
time you reboot your computer.
Why use Spyware Doctor?
Out of all the different tools I
tried, Spyware Doctor was the only one that completely removed Security

infections before they can install on your computer.
Spyware Doctor has also won over
100 industry awards, including:

have antispyware software running on your computer that uses aggressive real-time
protection methods to detect and block threats before they get a chance to infect
your computer (i.e. Spyware Doctor) then the chance of you getting infected again,
regardless of your activities, decreases exponentially.
