I have a computer affected with "My security Shield" spyware.
This machine is running WXP SP3.

Do you have any removal ideas for me?

Of course feel free to try other adware/spyware removal software too but my experience shows combofix should work fine.

never heard of this malware before but am sure malwarebyte is a good tool for things like this.

MalwareBytes as already suggested should removed it... but oftentimes these rogues also come with their friends, so if the problem persists after MBAM, then use ComboFix or other tools like TDSSKiller etc... and attach the logs for us.

To clean and to check if you system is clean do following:

Run malwarebytes in Safe Mode with Networking and update it before running a full system scan:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php

Then try HitManpro to make sure anything which might be left behind is clean:
32bit
http://dl.surfright.nl/HitmanPro35.exe

64bit
http://dl.surfright.nl/HitmanPro35_x64.exe

If issue is not resolved by these tools try TDSSKiller:

http://support.kaspersky.com/downloads/utils/tdsskiller.exe

Tutorial on TDSSKiller:

If this does not resolve your issue then try Combofix:

Download Combofix
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe
