Removing Security Shield (Uninstall Guide)

I recently wrote an article on how to remove a System Tool fake anti-spyware tool. If you missed to read the article, here the link (Uninstall System Tool).

Today, I received another request on how to remove a Security Shield another rogue anti-spyware program similar to Security Tool. The step-by-step is already provided by the bleepingcomputer.com website, so I will not create another how to article. Instead, I will share a different approach on how to remove the program without installing any anti-spyware program e.g. MalwareBytes or HijackThis.

You should know how to use a command prompt to navigate your workstation directories. Here's a simple guide on how to remove the Security Shield.

  • Restart your workstation in a SAFE Mode.
  • Login to your workstation
  • Open a command prompt, click on Start, Run, type CMD [Enter] (not case sensitive)
  • In command prompt, go to this subdirectories c:\Documents and Settings\Medialogy\Local Settings\Application Data\
  • Check if you find any random .exe file. When I help cleaned one infected workstation, I saw ptpckschld.exe under Application Data. I deleted this file and restart the computer.
This is a quick fix, though I highly recommend that your run full scan using Malwarebyte's software. 

Buy it from Amazon.com website:

Merry Christmas.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
