I am/was infected with security sheild virus. I followed your instructions on how to remove it and completed almost the whole process. I'm having trouble with the last step and I was hoping you could help me.
I downloaded the hosts-perm.bat link. The black box popped-up and disapeared. When I try to run the host-perm folder, a black box will pop-up and disapear, that's it.
When I right click on the folder and then click edit the folder will open. It says
echo,Y|cacls "%WinDir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" /G everyone:f
attrib -s -h -r "%WinDir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"
I have know idea what to do from here. I'm not very computer smart, so could you please respond with a "dumbed down" post? Sorry to ask that but I easily get lost when it comes to fixing computers. On the other hand I am impressed that I made it threw "most" of the removal process. Normally, my goofy neice attempts to fix it. Anyway,
Thank you for your time and help,
