I have just purchased this Dell PC for 2 weeks now. This comes with a dell security shield. However, I decided to change this with a better one AV and Internet Security that I purchased.

I just want to ask how to completely remove Dell security shield. I removed it using the Control Panel but there are still components left and this affects my subsequent installation. Please I need your opinions. 

Thank you.

Hi William,

I never imagined that this software is remarkably hooey. It’s been rumored that this is a fake program and it’s also capable of putting viruses in your computer instead of protecting it. I’m glad that you decided to get rid of it. There are a couple of methods that you can try but the most effective one is to restore your computer to a restore point when this program was never installed. This is how you do it.

  1. Restart your computer to safe-mode with networking. (Press F8 during the boot process).
  2. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

You will find restore points from this page. Just read the on-screen instructions and you will be fine.

If the method above won’t work then you may want to check this site for another method.

Keep us posted!
