My Brother-in-Law had this come up on his computer and he needed help getting it removed. Some of the symptons were it would constantly say the file being executed had a virus and it would prevent you from loading any and all programs. Anything you do with your computer whether trying to remove this from your desktop was a hassle. I did have to do some things to remove it but I will talk about that in a few minutes!
Malwarebytes And SuperAntispyware!
If it was for Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware, this would of been even harder remover than previous. I must say when I first install these a few years back, I didn’t know how well these guys worked and kept my system clean. I decided to try these two on my broather infected system to try to remove this scareware.
Removal of this virus!
If you are like me you probably used Google to find out how to remove this virus but I think the virus makers are getting smarter because it wasn’t as easy as it was a few years ago. They made it virtually impossible to find the answer with the computer you have that is infected. So you have to hope that you have another system to do the searching for the answer of the removal. Here is what I did to help remove this malware and scareware:
- Startup in Safe Mode [LINK]
- Login as Adminstrator
- USE MalwareBytes and do a FULL SCAN, this will take a while and once done remove what you see.
- Do a System Restore [LINK]. The Earlier the Better.
Once you have did those restart your computer then you should be able to install Malwarebytes to all users. When you can do that you are basically home free. Just install it again and do a full system scan, to help make sure you get rid of this scam and scareware malware. Once you do all this, if Malwarebytes did what you needed, it might be time to upgrade to Buy Malwarebytes Now!
I really am glad I had a full version of Malwarebytes to remove this annoying little scam and scareware. My brother is happy and I am happy.
