So my netbook got this annoying antivirus, which is fake, called Antivir Solution Pro. It slows down the pc significantly, blocks my internet connection and i cant start programs. I googled around and saw that these are common issues with this trojan(or atleast i guess it is a trojan). I ran mbam in safe mode and removed the files it found but it didnt help. I eventually got mbam started in normal mode too but when it asked to restart the computer the antivirus was back again. I tried to remove the proxy server connection through internet explorer, but apparently it reconnects as soon as you shut down the window. Im kinda stuck, i hope someone can help, id be very thankful.

EDIT: Task manager doesnt work either in normal mode and ive tried rkill too, it didnt work.
