Hello. About 2 hours ago, I was infected with the Windows 7 Antispyware 2012 virus. Now, I have been infected before by a similar virus, so I was quick to react to the situation. I google'd a quick removal guide and found one on this website. I downloaded the required files, which were FixNCR.reg and RKill.exe and continued the removal process. After RKill.exe ended its search for any malicious software that were currently running(not really sure how to explain this), the guide informed me to install MalwareBytes, which I already had installed before, and run a full scan. I did. Nothing was found. I was very perplexed by this. The guide informed me that MalwareBytes should have certainly found the virus and removed it from my system. I ran a quick scan as well as a full scan. Still nothing. So, I decided to download and install SuperAntispyware Free edition. However, it also found nothing besides some cookies. Like I had said before, I had been infected by a similar virus in the past and used Malwarebytes to successfully remove the virus. My question is, is the virus gone? Is it still wandering in the vast memories of my system? If so, please assist me in the removal of this horrendous virus. It is currently bedtime for me, as it is quite late, so please forgive me if I do not reply until tomorrow morning. Once again, thank you for your time and effort.
