I had the fake security center, webpages being redirected, rkill wouldn't work, couldn't update to pro version of malwarebytes anti-malware...so, I tried the following from the malwarehelp.org:
Fake Windows Security Center Removal (How to remove Fake Windows Security Center)
Proceed in following fashion:
■Boot in to Windows Safe Mode - ok, did this
■Install and scan with Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool. - ok, did this..it found a bunch of stuff, some it deleted, some if disinfected, some it said it would delete about reboot
■Install MalwareBytes’s Anti-Malware (mbam-setup.exe Direct download), Open and choose a full-scan. Once the scan is completed, click “Show results“, confirm that all instances of the rogue security software are check-marked and then click “Remove Selected” to delete them. If prompted, restart immediately to complete the removal process.
ok, did this, but i bought the pro version, and it wouldn't allow me to choose the protection button, got an error
■Turn System Restore off and on. - i turned system restore off, but then when i tried to turn it back on, it said i couldn't do this in safe mode....
■Restart in normal mode and repeat the above scans...i tried to restart in normal mode and safe mode...each time, the login screen would appear, but my mouse wouldn't work, so I couldn't even click on my name to log in...i don't know what to do
Please help!! thanks!!
