Antivirus system pro decided to install itself on my computer again.

It installed a while ago, but prevx easily got rid of it,
this time, whenever I try to open privx, it says "Application cannot be executed. The file prevx.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus now?" And obviously If I click yes, it brings me to a website to install this freaking rogue antivirus crap. WHAT SHOULD I DO!!!!
Also, I know I'll be recomended malware bytes, but it says the same thing for that to. And I just installed it 10 minutes ago.

And that ad that keeps popping up about Erectile Dysfuntion syndrome is annoying. I hate this rogue crap. And the lowlifes who brought it to existence.

other info-
operating system: Windows Vista
mode: Safe Mode (due to other unexplainable problem that I couldn't get any fixes for)
other: Windows Security Center is turned off and I can't turn it on because I'm forced on safe mode.


Just in case prevx doesn't find anything, I was going to copy/paste this to a notepad. But apparently notepad.exe is infected... prevx really needs to save my butt!

6 infections found... 0 left. I am golden now. The rogue is gone. Hopefully it won't come back for a third time.

You mods can lock/delete or do whatever to this topic. I longer require service. Have a nice day.
