Hello everyone,

I'm having a really bad night! Somehow I got infected with Antivirus Soft.

I tried getting rid of this by myself. I followed the directions exactly. Yet, when I ran the scan with MalwareBytes it said there were no infected files, meanwhile the popups of porn, viagra, and the damn false alerts kept coming! :thumbsup:

These are the steps I followed exactly:


Yes, I was able to update it to the latest database version but it still didn't get rid of Antivirus Soft!

I could really use some help.

I'm hoping someone can tell me how to get rid of this with combofix.

Thank you in advance!

My OS is Windows XP Home.

Hello please run RKill.... then rerun MBAM.

Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
  • Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
  • If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
  • A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
  • If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
  • If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
  • If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
You will need to run the application again if rebooting the computer occurs along the way as the malware programs will start again.

Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.
