  • Green Shield Virus/Malware Removal Help

    Anyone? I've gotten this twice, once at work and once at thome. Work just formatted the computer since my profile is networked. At home though I took it to a shop and they got rid of it for $95. Next time it happens I would like to do it myself if I have the time, but I have no idea how to do that. Also, if there is a good way to block it that would be even better.

    For those who don't know the Green Shield Malware infects your computer by installing and posing as a virus protection software that you need to purchase. Apparently the only thing it removes is itself. However, once the virus takes over your computer you can access any files, as it tells you the file is infected.

    This is probably no help, but I'm trying. This is at the top of the list from a Google on your topic. Green Shield Virus/Malware Removal Help

      I guess it either helped you or the virus wiped out your PC. In any case, I hope the problem has been rectified in some manner.

        I got an email from Cyberdefender about the new viruses it takes care of now and this Green Shield virus was one of the ones on it. Cyberdefender won't deal with it for free, but I have been using the paid version now for some time and have been happy with it.

            I don't know if it will get rid of the particular problem or not, since I don't think I had it, but in a search for Green Shield Virus/Malmare Removal, I ran across SUPERAntiSpyware, I got the free edition and it seems to rock.

              Build a LiveXP boot cd

              Put DrWebCureit and Emsisoft Emergency Kit on a USB drive

              Boot the computer with the LiveXP CD with the USB drive in the computer, then run DrWebCureit and the EEK.

              If you don't want to make your own LiveXP CD, then do a torrent search for a LiveXP CD or a pre-built Bart PE CD - it doesn't much matter what's on the CD as long as it's got USB support.

              MalWareBytes also has a portable antimalware, but it doesn't run on some LiveCD's - I've never had trouble with EEK or DrWeb. Be sure to use updated versions of EEK and DrWeb - with EEK run the update program on a networked computer before attempting a recovery, with DrWeb download the latest executable.

              To best utilize DrWeb I suggested you put a .bat file in the same folder as the executable that looks like
              Code:
              @ECHO off
              IF EXIST c:\windows\explorer.exe (
              SET ScanDir=C:
              ) ELSE IF EXIST d:\windows\explorer.exe (
              SET ScanDir=D:
              ) ELSE (
              EXIT
              )
              SET UserProfile=%ScanDir%\Quarantine
              MKDIR %UserProfile%
              EXECUTABLENAME.exe /al /arm /icm /mwi /sd /tb /ts /ha /go %ScanDir%
              Change the EXECUTABLENAME as appropriate, DrWeb changes the name of the executable with each build. These parameters will move all infected files to a quarantine folder, will do a deep scan, will only scan the system drive, and will put the quarantine folder on your system drive.

                I will post a mediafire link to a LiveXP ISO if I haven't been banned yet for being an obvious DL - mods, if you could please hold off for an hour or two that'd be much appreciated. Unzip the ISO and burn it to a CD using ImgBurn or whatever.

                  http://www.2shared.com/file/0IsweC1a/LiveXP.html

                  This ISO contains a (currently) up-to-date copy of DrWebCureit - just double-click the Antivir.bat shortcut on the desktop and it will call the DrWeb exe with the command line arguments I detailed above. You're on your own with the Emsisoft Emergency Kit, it doesn't run properly from a CD. The link will probably die in a week or two (in my experience free uploads rarely last long on these sites), so if you need my services again just click your heels three times and say "zim-zam o'pootertoot" and I'll return with a new ISO.

                  The ISO contains a LOT of dangerous software because I couldn't be arsed to rebuild the ISO (other than to replace DrWeb with the newest version), so please don't **** up your MBR with it, just stick to de-virusing your computer.

                      Its almost as if the antivirus people have created the viruses so their bots could take over message boards.

                            He won't need it, since he's bought a new machine since then.
                            It's almost as if all his overconfident, absolutist assertions were spoonfed to him by a trusted website or subreddit. Sheeple
