I followed the instructions to remove from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...urity-antivirus - however, it is not working! After doing all this, and then attempting to run ComboFix, it tells me that "ComboFix has detected the following real-time scanners to be active: Security Antivirus" .... I also then looked at this site to look into manually removing: http://www.spywarevoid.com/remove-security...l-tutorial.html ... strangely, though, none of the entries listed are in the registry. Yet ComboFix is still detecting Security Antivirus!

I am having the same problem. I downloaded malwarebytes yesterday and am not trying to download ATV. I cannot find Security Antivirus listed to uninstall it, but when I try to download ATV, it says it's still there. Hmmmm

Hello I would recommend noting the blue Text atop this forum..
Now you Both did to post these ogs so we can get a better look,thanks.


You will need to Download and Run DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log..
If for some reason you cannot perform a step, move on to the next.
Please follow this guide. go and do steps 6 thru 8 ,, Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis. Then go here HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.

Thanks; I made the new post, pasted the DDS, and attached the "Attach.txt" but did not have success with the GMER - the first time it froze after scanning for a long time; was probably almost finished. The second time, the whole computer screen froze and required rebooting by the power button. Again, it had scanned for a long time and was probably near the end of the scan. So on the new post, I asked if I should try to run the GMER scan in Safe Mode. We shall see.

Thanks.
