Hello. I want to start by first apologizing for this posting not having all the requirements. I began to have problems with Antimalware Doctor this morning. I found the removal instructions for this particular issue and ran rkill to stop the virus processes but when I attempted to run Malwarebytes' it will not open. I also followed the Preparation Guide but the DDS did not produce the Notepad windows and whenever I attempt to run Gmer everything freezes and gmer fails to run.

I started to get all of the Antimalware Doctor popups and such, a desktop shortcut named ACommander has appeared and my system restore capabilities have been disabled. I don't know what to do. The only log I have is the log produced by rkill after it terminated processes. Please help. Thank you so much in advance.

I have a similar problem, but have had some success. Several days ago I did a Google search and suddenly Antimalware Doctor took over, disabled Mcafee, SkyBot, Trojan Remover, Task Manager, etc. It would not allow me to download Malwarebytes' Antimalware. But I was able to download it to another computer and using a thumbdrive transfered it to the infected computer. Had to run Malwarebyte's Antmalware (MBAM ) several times, with several reboots, but finally reached a point where 90% of the damage was overcome. I also downloaded Security Task Manager ( STM ) and that helped me identify and remove a few files that MBAM missed. Now I have only two symptoms remaining, namely ( 1 ) "something" is trying to access three websites and is being blocked by MBAM. Those sites are and and ( 2 ) my system restore is disabled and none of the several security programs I have have been able to overcome that.

So for me is is simply irritating, but my computer is apparently fully functioning. Now I am simply using STM to progressively quarantine files, one by one, in the hope that I can determine which one is the culprit. My guess is "it" has hijacked a legitimate file.

In any event, I would recommend trying MBAM 1.46 again, then STM as I have done.
