How To Remove Protect Shield Malware / Spyware

Protect Shield is a rouge Windows anti-spyware tool meant to trick computer users into thinking that their system has errors and viruses. Protect Shield is usually downloaded to a computer automatically from unsafe websites and low internet security settings. Once the computer is infected, Protect Shield is programed to start up when Windows boots up making the start up time a lot longer. Because Protect Shield is running in the background the computer may seem slower. Protect Shield will periodically display notifications and warnings of “threats” and other infections, these warnings are generated by Protect Shield itself and should not be taken seriously. If a user attempts to use Protect Shield to remove the warnings it generated it will lead you to their product software site which will tell users they must pay to have these issues removed. Users should know this is a scam and by no means should be purchased.

Manual Removal: Because Protect Shield runs without being started users will first need to stop the program from running before removing it. Simply closing the program won’t work because its programed to run in the systems background, so to stop it from running press Crtl+Shift+Esc on your keyboard, this will open up the Windows Task Manager. Under the processes tab look for ProtectShield.exe or Protect.exe. Once selected choose “End Task” and this will stop the program from running in the background and allow us to remove the files that were created by Protect Shield. Next delete the following files:

  • c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\ProtectShield.lnk
  • c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\ProtectShield\
  • c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\ProtectShield\1 ProtectShield.lnk
  • c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\ProtectShield\2 Homepage.lnk
  • c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\ProtectShield\3 Uninstall.lnk
  • c:\Program Files\ProtectShield\
  • c:\Program Files\ProtectShield\license.txt
  • c:\Program Files\ProtectShield\ProtectShield.exe
  • c:\Program Files\ProtectShield\uninstall.exe

Protect Shield Registry Entries that should be removed:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ProtectShield
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “ProtectShield”
