I notice that the folders created by gamarue virus has a strange attributes. At first the folder is hidden when see it in windows explorer. However when it is checked the attributes it returns as an ordinary directory. I need more time to analyze this behavior or a volunteer who will solve this problem.
Shiela will go under code revision at bugfix on 2014. I received some bug reports regarding these matters:
Some users say that the interface of Shiela USB Shield is not pretty and does not notify for new updates. Well there is a reason behind of it.
About Interface: Performance is more important than appearance. I made the interface a simple as possible but still user friendly in order to perform Shiela's essential task fast and also to make run in small memory footprint.
About update notifications: Every version of Shiela USB Shield was designed to be dynamic and to survive at any possible situation. If you want to be informed about new version, just visit the Shiela USB Shield here at sourceforge.
My account on sourceforge was disabled without any notice. It means that the original page of Shiela USB Shield was deleted together with the source code and programs. As of now I will attempt to restore files and articles as soon as possible.
