This fake anti-virus program stops me from opening any process on the infected PC, each time when I try to open some programs like Internet Explorer or Word, the Windows Prime Shield will pop up and tell me that the program I want to open is infected by Trojan horse, it has blocked the program from accessing the Internet.

What is the manual way to get rid of this nasty virus? Any help will be appreciated.
