Remove Windows Prime Shield scam

Windows Prime Shield is a new fake antivirus program originating from FakeVimes rogue family. Infiltration of this program into computers is absolutely illegal. It doesn’t come into PCs according to user’s wishes and intentions. Likewise, the virus doesn’t have any Uninstaller (which doesn’t really surprise us because it doesn’t have a legitimate installer either). The aim of this rogue is to scare you into buying its so-called “ultimate protection”, which is the total waste of funds. In this article you will find out how to remove Windows Prime Shield malware from your computer.
