Uninstall the Ares program. Go to C:\ProgramFiles\ and delete the Ares folder.

Next, run an antivirus scan and an antispyware scan:
download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop
  • Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
Empty all temps and reboot your computer.
