So the other day my computer got infected with antivirus live. I looked online and tried to remove it. I read some instructions sayin to download combo fix and MBAM so i did and the virus seemed to have been gone for good but a couple days later it came back but this time it was worse. My desktop background turned green with a black square saying my computer was infected. This seems like it just wont go away. Some one please help me get my computer back to normal!! :thumbsup: Thanks in advance

I have personally removed this from many machines. I would first disable system restore. Boot in safemode and run a full scan. Usually if you can run taskmgr as soon as windows loads and stop the process sysguard, then you can run Malwarebytes. It is very important that you update MBAM before you run a full scan. I would also suggest using Spybot S&D to immunize the system. Its a great program even though teatimer.exe is a resource hog.

Please leave System Restore Enabled as it is far better to have an infected Restore Point to go back to than have none at all if you run into problems when you are running scans etc

Do please fully update the Malwarebytes program, reboot and run a full computer scan, then let us see its report for checking

(Please do not post anything from ComboFix ;you will also ultimatey need instructions for removing ComboFix tool from your computer as it is a tool you should not have on there unless someone trained in its use has requested you to use)
