I accidently clicked on a "free antivirus scan", which proceded to cause my internet explorer to block access to every site. I tried using both AVG and McAfee only to get a message claiming they are infected. How can i remove this program?

Another detail i found out, apparently this wil send your browser to an (easily closable thankfully) illegal "adult entertainment" site as well. Dont know the details on that though.

I'm trying to fix a computer with this EXACT problem. All the programs are taken over, even task manager, but when I start it in safe mode, I can't figure out what to do.
everything leads back to "softwarear.com"
Help please!

I initially followed my avg recomendations and accidentally removed 2 files this bleepty virus detected as a problem

i have also done a system restore and it seems to have worked ok

how to do it:

press F8 whilst pc is booting and at the bios info just spam click it

select safemode with networking

then through windows start menu went to search for system restore

then select a date prior to when you were infected

and select restore and follow the prompts

(damn porn link popups from this bloody virus)


I wish you luck with it

PS: i had a usb keyboard and couldnt access F8 function had to fit an old ps2 keyboard that enables when system starts up

Try TRK which you can find at: http://trinityhome.org

"Trinity Rescue Kit or TRK is a free live Linux distribution that aims specifically at recovery and repair operations on Windows machines."

Once it boots, go to Virus Scans, it offers you several choices. I found "BitDeffender" did the trick. It will run for a long time, be patient.

After I regained control of my computer I also ran Malwarebytes as a precaution. You may also find that the LAN setting - Use Proxy Server was still set, follow the directions on this site to unset that under IE.
