I unfortunately was infected with the Security Shield virus earlier today, but was able to remove it thanks to your very helpful uninstall guide at (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-my-security-shield). However, I had an issue when I got to Step 18. Windows would not allow me to save the new HOSTS file at C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\HOSTS and instead forced me to save it in the users folder. Is it a problem that I no longer have my HOSTS file saved in the original location?
Thanks in advance!
