OK, I read the removal instructions for Antivirus pro, but I could not get malwarebytes or combofix to run except in safe mode. This did not remove the malware. Also, none of the registry edits were the same as in the removal instructions. Finally, I read this forum and ran rkill and stopped the processes and ran superAntispyware. I am runnning everything else now, but have already spent 3 hours on this issue!! :thumbsup:

Don't run ComboFix. See the note in blue above^^ We don't want to turn your computer into a vegetable.

Please post your MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware logs. Thanks

I got rid of it with a combination of SuperAntiSpyware and Combo Fix and then Malware bytes. The process killer "rkill" made it all possible, but that program even killed it the first 2 tries every time. I also had to do a registry clean afterwards, because even after all of the malware was killed, it still had a popup on reboot. The PC ran fine all day, it was just a loooooong night.

Thanks to the help from all of the problems posted here, it is a great resource for finding a roadmap as to what to do. :thumbsup:
