Hi I have a security shield that keeps poping up telling me I have a trojan and a worm 38mof them. My McAfee tells me my computer is fine. But I can`t open up pages because this shield keeps poping up and...

A fella at work had this happen to his profile.
I fixed it for him.
I found
on the above page it talks about putting in an activation code ( 64C665BE-4DE7-423B-A6B6-BC0172B25DF2 ) to the Security Shield app which shuts down the Security Shield and stops it from popping up.
Then you can delete it.
run some cleanup software
like Ad-aware
Spyware doctor
spybot search and destroy

let me know if this help or not.
Thank you

Easy tip to clean your computer quickly

There is a product called Pc Guard
Once Pc Guard is installed on a computer, it takes less than 10 seconds to undo any damage caused by virus infections, spyware etc.
Also it will revert problems caused by user's mistake, misconfigurations, Windows corrupted files, even registry problems.

Its easy to use. Just pressing the F9 key on the keyboard while the computer starts up or restarts
There is a video on youtube explaining how to.

This is not the Pc Guard Internet security offered by Virgin Media or Comcast

E machine search page keeps poping up when Im looking at other sites

It is possible you have a virus. Check your anti-virus software is up to date and you should do a complete scan of your computer. If you do not have anti virus software then I would recommend Avast free version, with this you can schedule a boot time scan which will remove a virus hiding in the windows system files. you should also scan for adware and spyware with one of the free programs available to do this.

Contrast100 do not disappear from my monitor screen

Its a virus.
You need to run these 3 essential programs to remove all the spyware on your computer.

If you do not have an internet security suit and only an anti virus
1. Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
2. Run a complete scan with free curing utility Dr.Web CureIt!
3. Run the anti spyware removal programs spybot or Superantispyware
Use Mozilla firefox or the google chrome browser for browsing unsafe websites

Install ThreatFire.ThreatFire, features innovative real-time behavioral protection technology that provides powerful standalone protection or the perfect complement to traditional signature-based antivirus programs offers unsurpassed protection against both known and unknown zero-day viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, spyware, adware and other malware.
Run an online virus scan like Trend Micro HouseCall,F-Secure Online Virus Scanner etc etc
update your software by running
Secunia Online Software Inspector
Install a good antivirus in your computer.
Keep your antivirus updated. If automatic updates are available, configure your antivirus to use them.
Keep your permanent antivirus protection enabled at all times.

I get out of my system after getting 2010 on my r52

Do you have a reliable and updated virus guard? This might be virus.
Try booting in safe mode and install Avast! (or any other virus guard). Make sure you start computer in safe mode each time it restart. (Press F8 before windows logo appears and select 'Safe Mode' and press Enter)  Update the virus guard, run it (and shcedule a boot-scan if you installed Avast!).
Let us know what happens.

I had the same issue with McAfee but I figured it out. Her it goes... Uninstall your Virus guard and downgrade your Internet browser that you use the most then reinstall your virus guard. In other things, try a different web browser such as "Microsoft Internet Explorer".

I purchased the AVG Anti-virus & anti- spyware cd

Installing AVG might not be able to solve your spyware problem.

You could try downloading free mbam:

Double-click and install it. Then run it. Click the Scan button, It will detect and remove the Spyware Guard 2008

After clicking on OK button for scan is complete, you need to click the Remove Selected button when the malwares are listed.

Let the computer reboot if mbam needs that.
Then try installing AVG.

Just in case, you could also try booting from the AVG CD. If it's bootable, it will be able to scan your computer without the need to boot in to windows. Try it too.

2009 anti virus program keeps on poping on the computer screen. It's massing up my software.

Hi nhnvk,

Hope you have anti-virus and anti-spyware programs If so, boot your computer to "Safe" mode with networking. Update your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. Then run the programs either one at a time or simultaneously (tip: run both programs twice). If this does not work, then the next best thing to do is to reformat your hard drive and re-install all your programs. Of course you'll need to back up all your pertinent files.

Good luck and thank you.

Sounds like you have spyware, adware, and maybe even a virus. Try using lavasofts ad-aware personal edition, or spybot search and destroy, or avg anti virus. To get rid of the infection. If that doesn't work maybe try Norton or you might have to re-install windows. Sorry try those and see what you can find. Hope this helps. M~
