The instructions given by Grinler on this matter is good advice and the registry entries need to be removed...but that is not the end...this program drove me crazy and I was relentlessly determined to rid my computer of this fraudulant garbage...first it gives the impression it is a windows component and then proceeds to constantly bombard your computer with false spyware and virus notices...as I said...Grinler's advice is valid and worth doing...but there is a file called LWGEWVBY.EXE in the C:\windows\system 32 folder that get's into your startup and executes upon starting your computer, it disguses itself as a windows security center file. There is also a file called LWGEWVBY.EXE-035AE5DC.pf in your C:\windows\prefetch folder...both these files need to be deleted. Uninstall program...follow Grinler's advice with the registry entries...open task manager...end process: LWGEWVBY.EXE...delete those files...use Tweaknow registry cleaner and delete LWGEWVBY.EXE from your startup...you should be rid of winishield :thumbsup: . Hope my explanation is understandable.

I wish there was a way to report these fraudulant software companies and have charges brought up against them!!!

OOps...should have looked closer....guess I should have posted this in a different section....Moderator? Whoever....move to proper section please.

If you would have posted in the Am I Infected forum you would have been instructed to use Auto runs:
to kill the process at Startup

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
