When it wouldn't let me run my spyware programs, I tried just searching for the Antimalware Doctor files on my computer. When I found some, I deleted them. That seemed to take care of the problem. I then ran Spybot Search and Destroy and got rid of a bunch of files that were associated with AMD (Antimalware Doctor) But then later when I turned my computer off, well, it wouldn't turn off and I had to turn off the power source eventually to get it to go off. Then when it started up again, AMD was back. This time when I searched for its files, I could not find any at all.
I have tried installing programs to remove it, but AMD won't let me. It just says something about the file being infected (yeah right) and it won't let me download.
It also stopped me from using my "run" feature to get to the redgit thing.
What's more, it even stopped me from viewing this forum. I am now using someone else's computer to post. It apparently wouldn't even let me post on this computer under the name I had registered under on my computer - I had to re-register on this computer.
Ok, let me tell you the last thing that I tried to get rid of it. On a page for something called PCTools Spyware Doctor, they gave instructions to manually remove the virus without using regit or other things that AMD wasn't letting me into. These are the instructions I tried to follow:
"Restart computer, before it launhes click continuously the F8 button. Choose Safe Mode." ---- When I clicked the F8 button it brough up 2 options I could choose from. Neither said "Safe Mode", the options weren't descriptive to me at all. I just clicked the second one in desperation.
"Press Ctrl + Shift + esc to start Task Manager" -- - - - I did this after my computer had booted, and it worked.
"Stop the following processes...." ------ it then gave a bunch of names that contained words like malwaredoctor.exe and setupapp. HOwever noen of these processes were shown in the processes section! The only thing I could find in Task Manager was one application running for AMD. I turned it off and it seemed to somewhat stop the flow of popups, but it certainly didn't stop AMD and some of its "warning" messages stayed put.
So since that wasn't working, I came here. Now that I'm on an alternate computer and can post, I'm hoping someone can help me get rid of this
garbage once and for all. I would appreciate it greatly!
