I got a nasty virus by this name that my AVG doesn't detect. Is there a way I can get rid of it? When I try to go to any websites pertaining to removal (such as spybot) I am redirected to an error message. and it is the same 'error- server cannot be found' message for all those sites. but most websites function normally, not all though.

I also mistakenly downloaded winbluesoft to try and get rid of the first one, but now that program seems to be inhabiting my computer as well. I looked at the tutorial on this site about removal of it and downloaded malwarebytes anti-malware and it installed correctly, but my computer is unable to launch the program. when I click on the icon it just does nothing (after proper installation).

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it.

  • Before saving any of your security programs, rename them first. For example, before you save Malwarebytes', rename it to something like MBblah.exe and then click on Save and save it to your desktop. Same thing after you install it. Before running it, rename the main executable file first

    Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

    If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run..
  • Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.
