I have followed the instructions for the removal of AntvirGear Removal (Free) (Automated).I am unable to proceed beyond para 6 of this instruction.I get the credit screen but when I press 'any' button the screen freezes.I have deleted the SmitfraudFix program twice and reloaded but to no avail. I must have tried at least 12 times but every time it freezes at the same point. Any suggestions please ?

I suggest you try doing it in safe mode if you have not already have.

Get to Safe Mode by continuously tapping the F8 key as soon as the computer begins to boot. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Thank you annabackwards,

All the attempts I have made to follow the instructions have been in safe mode as per paragraph 3 of the instructions but when I get to para 6 and attempt to go to para 7 by pressing any key the screen freezes and the only way I can proceed is to turn off the PC and reboot. Since posting my original problem I have attempted to carry out the instructions about 6 more times but with the same result. Any other solutions please ?

If there are not further problems, you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recent Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
