Trying to remove Anti Virus Security Pro for someone and it seems like it became smarter.

It will simply reboots when trying to boot in Safe Mode.  Even Safemode Command Prompt.

I've run into this feature with variants of the FBI/White Screen virus. You should be able to boot into Safe Mode with Command Line.

 

I use Hitman KickStart on USB to quickly find the FBI virus files, then boot into Command Line and rename them before booting Normal. You might try it as well. The One Time Scan will find the files only; you have to pay for a full version to quarantine/delete them. I run it, not the filenames and their location, then boot into Command Line and isolate the files. Then boot Normal and run AV scan. Simple. LOL.

Sorry, I missed the Command Prompt part.

 

Why not try sticking the hard drive into another computer and running a AV scan there?

 

And it's possible that the malware is not the culprit here- there is possibly a trojan or ZeroAccess rootkit that was installed with the copy of malware you received. Malware generally never travels alone...

Tried to do a restore from a restore point and no luck as well.

 

 

Will try booting up from Hiren's later and running MalwareBytes from there.
