My Security Shield. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

by ,   Also known as MySecurityShield | Type: Rogue Antispyware
My Security Shield is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Security Master AV and My Security Engine. Just like its predecessors, My Security Shield is promoted through the use of fake online scanners and other bogus websites or malware that displays fake security alerts on your computer. The scareware states that your PC is infected with spyware, adware and other viruses and that you should download and install My Security Shield in order to remove the infections. In reality, though, this is nothing more but a scam. And if you decide to install My Security Shield then it will make your computer almost unusable.

Once installed, the rogue program will install a variety of files on your computer that act as fake malware so that the program will find them while scanning. These files are: cid.drv, CLSV.tmp, DBOLE.exe, delfile.sys, fan.dll, grid.sys, kernel32.exe, kernel32.sys, PE.dll, PE.tmp, runddlkey.drv, SICKBOY.drv, std.dll, tempdoc.tmp, tjd.sys and other. All these files are located in %UserProfile%Recent folder.

While My Security Shield is running, it will automatically start scanning your computer and then will state that there are many infected files that should be removed, but this can be done only with a full version of the program. You may also find that your computer starts to become slower. Furthermore, My Security Shield will constantly display fake security alerts stating that your computer is infected and that you should purchase the program immediately to protect your computer. The text of some of these alerts are:

Warning! Virus detected
Threat Detected: Trojan-PSW.VBS.Half
Description: This is a VBScript-virus. It steals user's passwords.

Memory access problem
WindowsErrorForm has encountered a problem at address 0x1FC408.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If you see this error again, operational information can be irrevocably lost.

As you can see, My Security Shield uses misleading methods to scare you into purhcasing the program. The removal guide below will walk you through removing the My Security Shield and any associated malware that may have been installed with it. You can remove this virus manually, but we strongly recommend you to use an automatic removal tool. Finally, if you have already purchased the bogus program then contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.

I had the same problem. If you use Windows 7 check for a repair disk. You have this if you had backed up your computer before this incident.
The disk will check for problems with your boot directory and registry. Let it run and follow the prompts as needed. Once the system has rebooted the program has been removed.
Got the Security Shield and fell for it. A week after my purchase, every trace of the program disappeared. Well, except for the fact that someone in the Mideast now has my old debit card number and has attempted to use it. Luckily, it was caught by my financial institution. Now I have to get some ID insurance.
Im so confused. For some reason it inturrepted my virus ware, that I already had and now I dont know what to do!!!!!! I hate downloading things becuse im so worried now.....
