Hi, my computer was infected with Windows Private Shield virus. My antivirus is not working anymore and some of my files are missing. Also, I cannot run any programs because Windows Private Shield hides my shortcuts also. I can see that my antivirus program is also deactivated; icon is no longer on my system tray.
My first contact with this malware was about two days ago when my cousin used my laptop. I suspect he downloads something from the Internet. He was a game addict. At first, my computer is not cooperating when I am browsing the web. It tends to redirect to other pages. Next time I open my PC, Windows Private Shield is scanning my whole system with a virus. It founds many Trojans and viruses. I will not buy this trick though because I know it is rogue and I am clearly infected. Aside from doing an online scan, are there any tools that can catch the malware for sure? Please tell me.
