I noticed the security shield pop-up a few weeks ago, and have been trying to remove it since. I actually posted on the Virus/Malware section of this site, but after trying many difference things the moderator suggested I post here.
I've followed the security shield removal process from this site several times, both in and out of safe mode, but nothing seems to be helping. When I run Malwarebytes, it freezes up and is “Not Responding”
This thing is really stressing me out, so I appreciate any help I can get. My main issue at this point is that I cannot do a system restore. I have read that Security Shield blocks system restore. Other than that I have not noticed any other problems with the computer.
Thank you for taking the time to respond.
