By that I take it that you're using a recovery partition that will allow you to restore the computer to the state it was in when you first purchased it. If so, sometimes that's the best solution.
I am just going to move aaaaaall my files and F-12 it to start fresh.
Antivirus System Pro is a rogue security program which infect machines by using social engineering and scams to trick a user into spending money to buy a an application which claims to remove malware and is often seen with a Vundo infection. Vundo is a Trojan that infects a system with malicious Browser Helper Objects and .dll (Dynamic Link Library) modules attached to system files like Winlogon and Explorer.exe. The infection is responsible for launching unwanted pop ups, advertising for rogue antispyware programs, and downloading more malicious files which hampers system performance. Newer variants of Vundo typically use bogus warning messages and alerts to indicate that your computer is infected with spyware or has critical errors as a scare tactic to goad you into downloading a malicious security application to fix it. The messages can mimic system messages so they appear as if they are generated by the Windows Operating System. The problem with these types of infections is that they can download other malicious files so the extent of the infection can vary to include backdoor Trojans and rootkit components which make it more difficult to remove.
