Re: my security sheild

If you suspect you're infected and have trouble finding what is causing the infection, I'd suggest giving this handy tool a try.

"McAfee  GetSusp is intended for users who suspect undetected malware on their  system. By using a combination of clever heuristics and querying  McAfee's online database of known clean files to gather suspicious  files, GetSusp eliminates the user's need for deep technical knowledge  of computer systems to isolate undetected malware. McAfee GetSusp is  recommended as a tool of first choice when analyzing a suspect machine."

Get it from here:

Once GetSusp identifies and collects the suspect files, post the logs here and we community members can help.
