Today I was on a popular sport website and this programme called Security Shield came up and somehow installed itself. I've had a search on here and see it's quite a common problem. Basically I just wanna run by you what action I took and whether i'm likely to be left with any issues still.
I used a youtube video guide to remove it. I downloaded and ran RKill, then Malwarebytes, did the scan and it picked up 2 virues. I wiped them, restarted and here I am now. The thing is, I didn't do this in 'safe mode with networking', I just did it in my normal log on. Is that a problem? Will my PC be completely clear now? I have McAfee and that didn't pick anything up, waste of money!
On one youtube video they said if you get Security Shield on your PC, it means you've probably had a virus/trojan on your PC for a week or two! Is that true as i've used credit/debit cards online in the past fortnight...
Thanks for your help.
