I have accidentally got WIndows AV software on my computer which appears to be fake rogue anti virus.
Symptoms of these sort of programs seem to be fake scans, asking you to install stuff and then asking you to purchase licenses and scare you.
I need to remove it and found http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-av-software
which describes what to do
However the resolution it suggests for removing windows av involves installing lots more programs (RKILL, Shell, Malwarebytes),
it then runs a scan and finally suggests you purchase a licence: "consider purchasing the PRO version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to protect against these types of threats in the future."
These instructions sound just like what the original fake rogue program was doing - ie infecting my computer and then trying to charge me.
How can i tell if it's safe to follow these instructions and install this software, or if i'm just giving my computer more viruses and corrupting the registry?!
Don't know what to trust! would really appreciate your advice
