It doesn't help, you have lost the venturi effect the fan sets up when t draws air in. You need to have the A/C system pressures checked, I think that the high pressure goes too high while driving and the high pressure cutoff kicks in and shuts the A/C down. Something you can do yourself is make sure the air ways are clear through the A/C condenser and the radiator. If you don't replace the shroud you might have to put on an auxiliary cooling fan just for the A/C.
