Windows Premium Shield. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

Windows Premium Shield is also known as WindowsPremiumShield | Type: Rogue Antispyware
Severity scale:  

Windows Premium Shield is a dangerous application, which is designed to show forged system scanners and fake alerts that all report about invented viruses. No matter how trustworthy these alerts look like, you should remember one thing – this program has no virus data base and other elements that are important for normal antiviruses. In fact, Windows Premium Shield displays the same alerts on all computers, so you can be sure that you can ignore these alerts safely. In addition, it's also recommended to check the system with updated anti-spyware and remove Windows Premium Shield and other malicious programs from the system. Otherwise, you can expect system slow downs, browser redirections, the loss of your personal information and similar troubles.


Windows Premium Shield is spread just like any other rogue: it can infiltrate computers with a help of trojan horse, which typically hides inside infected emails, misleading alerts that offer downloading updates and similar things. If you received the message that says that you need to update some program, go to its official website and download updates from there. Basically, this is the only way to make sure that you won't download virus on your computer. If Windows Premium Shield infiltrates the system, it modifies several system settings and starts displaying its forged alerts. Some of them look like that:

System data security is at risk!
To prevent potential PC errors, run a full system scan.

Warning! Identity theft attempt detected
Hidden connection IP:
Target: Microsoft Corporation keys

Please, ignore these alerts because they are forged and misleading. If you see Windows Premium Shield's alerts on your computer, it's a sign that it's infected and that you have to check it with updated antispyware. Leaving this program on your computer may initiate various problems.
