In this case we write a article about the removal instruction for Web Shield. Do notice that Web Shield is not a virus. But it does act like a Potentially Unwanted Program. We got questions from customers who installed Web Shield on their computer without notice. This is because Web Shield comes bundled with known adware contained custom installers from Download.com and CNET. The CNET custom installer is where we got Web Shield installed. If you try to decline Web Shield during installation of the free software you are trying to download, the whole installation quits. Even the free software is not installed. This behavior might vary from customs installer.

You are being forced to install the offered application if you want to try the free software you originally trying to install. Therefor this removal instruction for Web Shield.

Also we added 3 free tools to remove additional offered adware that is also forced to be installed onto your computer.

Both AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Tool are known adware removal tools and just as MalwareBytes Anti-Malware completely free of charge.
