Your Web Safe Removal Guide

Do you know what Your Web Safe is?

Your Web Safe is the name describing a group of rogue anti-spyware programs such as The Web Sentinel and The Registry Sentinel. Maybe hackers are getting the word "Sentinel" confused with a newspaper because these programs do not guard or protect you from anything. Your Web Safe is nothing more than a series of useless software.

In non-techie terms: We have found that the Your Web Safe programs use advanced tactics to get you to purchase the full version of the program. If Your Web Safe or its family of applications is installed, they will at some point display a purchase screen that cannot be closed until the program is purchased. That's pretty up-front and demanding if you ask us. Other programs in the Your Web Safe family use similar tactics such as displaying parasites that it found on your hard drive to scare you.

Do not trust Your Web Safe or any other program that is directly related it's family of fake anti-spyware or fake registry cleaner programs.

    Web Sentinel actually was a legit web filtering software/service that was provided by certain ISPs throughout the nation.
    I am unaware if it still is, but I know that Mstar in Utah offered it for a premium fee up until about a year and a half ago.
