Personal Shield Pro.

Personal Shield Pro is the latest member of an old malwares’ family where other its members are Antivirus Scan, Antivirus .NET, Antivirus Action and many other that have done numerous troubles for computer users.
Seems like creators of Personal Shield Pro are still capable to infect targeted computers with a help of Trojans, that get inside without any user’s permission. They just use poorly protected, vulnerable systems for distributing their malicious software. However, while Personal Shield Pro in most cases stays unnoticed, you will definitely notice additional activity of Personal Shield Pro.

When running inside your machine, Personal Shield Pro will create some Registry keys that will help this scamware to launch once the PC is rebooted. Besides, there are also some harmless files dropped that latter will be detected as malicious. Additionally, after being launched, Personal Shield Pro will play havoc with your computer what will result in annoying system scanners and alerts displayed once you turn on your computer. Malware will also begin to display unwanted popup alerts, telling the same as earlier mentioned alerts that your PC is dangerously infected and that you must purchase Personal Shield Pro. However, this scam must be removed instead of paying for it. 

By detecting those imaginary or harmless ‘cyber threats’, Personal Shield Pro hopes to make you register its full version. However, registering it means more problems to you and your computer. There is no chance this rogue anti-spyware helps keep your computer safe, so remove Personal Shield Pro as soon as possible.
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %Temp%\[random]\[random].exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “RunInvalidSignatures” = ’1?
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PhishingFilter “Enabled” = ’0?
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “CheckExeSignatures” = ‘no’
Although it is possible to manually remove Personal Shield Pro, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
