Nava Shield is what many people call a “rogue antivirus” program. This basically means that this infection will place what appears to be a legitimate antivirus tool onto your PC, and will consequently then try to con you into either buying the upgrade of the software or stealing your personal details to make money for the developers. If you are unfortunate enough to have this virus on your PC, you need to get rid of it in the most effective and reliable way possible, to ensure that no further problems will beset your system. This tutorial is going to show you the best & most effective way to remove the Nava Shield virus, and to keep it gone from your PC for good.
In order to get rid of this infection, you need to first know what it is. Described as a “malware” virus by industry professionals, the Nava Shield infection will basically disguise itself as a legitimate antivirus tool in order to get you to trust it. Although this program is continually being promoted as an effective way to protect your PC, the fact is that it will infect your PC from the likes of Trojan Horse viruses, fake email attachments and rogue downloads… in an attempt to try and get you to buy it. Further problems the infection will cause include the likes of disabling Internet access, as well as blocking the likes of “Task Manager” from loading up correctly.
Removing Nava Shield is actually relatively simple if you take steps to get rid of it in the most reliable way. The way to get rid of the infection is to first remove the fake program files it has placed onto your PC, as well as to then remove any settings or other files it has placed there. Because Nava Shield is a piece of software, it has placed program files into a specific folder on your PC. You could attempt to remove this folder manually or using an automated tool, and you’ll be able to get rid of all the infected parts of the virus:
- C:Program FilesNavaShield
You could try and remove that folder manually (by browsing to it on “My Computer” and then deleting it), but more often than not, Nava Shield will have placed some hidden virus files onto your system in an attempt to load itself back up if only partially deleted. Most people who try and manually remove the virus will end up seeing it return, meaning that if you really want to get rid of Nava Shield, it’s recommended you use a reliable piece of software that will get rid of all its infected parts.
The most reliable & effective way to get rid of Nava Shield is to use what’s known as a “malware removal tool”. This is a type of software which has been designed to scan through your PC and remove all parts of the infection from your system – allowing Windows to run much more reliably and smoothly as a result. We’ve found that a program called XoftSpy is the most effective at removing Nava Shield, as this tool will be able to scan through your PC and get rid of all the infected files it has placed on there. You can download XoftSpy, install it and then let it clean out your system to ensure that NavaShield is removed for good, as well as preventing it from returning.
