So far I don't see any problem yet. I will uninstall MCShield and plug in the pen drives again to ensure my laptop is free of shortcut virus.

Ya... I would keep that. I just uninstalled MCShield and tried to plug in the pen drives, so far no more shortcut is in the pen drives now. I would like to reinstall MCShield soon.

If you are happy I will tidy up now

Subject to no further problems :)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :thumbsup:

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

Download and run Delfix

Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

CryptoPrevent install this programme to lock down and prevent crypto ransome ware

Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean


It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this little guide Best security practices Keep safe :wave:
