For the sake of expediency...you might try to follow the procedures listed at BC Removal, AV Security Suite..

I suggest that you read through all instructions carefully...before doing anything.

In the event that this doesn't solve it, post back and we'll try to overcome this.

If you feel that the above instructions are too intensive or laborious for you to follow, let me know and I'll move you to one of our malware forums.

The instructions in the link provided...should be effective against the listed malware item, but it may not necessarily be effective against others. Users seem to think that it's only one item that they have to deal with...that may not necessarily be the case.

Thanks guys. I've already read through the Uninstall Guide for it but it didn't help with anything... sad.gif I can't even get the computer to the login screen... It keeps saying: "Invalid System Disk. Replace the disk and press any key." I've had a fake Windows Vista Anti-Virus thing before on my dad's computer and used a guide just like that for getting rid of it but this time it didn't work for mine... dry.gif

Hi Ryuu,

I am going to assist you with your problem.

Please refrain from making any changes to your system (scanning or running other tools, updating Windows, installing applications, removing files, etc.) from now on as it might interfere with our fixes. Please let me know in your next reply if you agree with this.

Do you have a Windows installation DVD?
