Malwarebytes and Security Shield

Specs: Windows XP
I already have Malwarebytes installed on my computer. I ran a quick scan and a full scan and it didn't get rid of Security Shield. What should I do now? I can't afford to take it in and I really need my computer. Can someone talk me through the process of removing it?

Try doing a search on Google for 'Security Shield Removal' - there are loads of manual walkthroughs to do it (don't bother downloading any 'removal tools' as these are generally just trying to sell you programs).

The main steps are to stop the malware from running, either by catching it early in the start-up process and stopping it through Task Manager, or start in safe mode, then remove the start-up item, either directly in the registry, by using MSCONFIG or by using the Tools/start-up section of CCleaner, then delete the folder containing the file. Lastly run CCleaner registry section and Malwarebytes again.
