I need help.
Earlier today I installed Handbrake on my PC, and wasn't paying 100% attention as I was clicking through the installation menu. As a result, along with the HandBrake software, one of those fake PC health scanning apps called "GOPCPRO" was installed.
I can't seem to get rid of this thing. The UnInstall option actually re-starts the application. Apparently they want me to enter some sort of uninstallation key in order to complete the process, which involves submitting a request to them with personal information. Obviously this is one big bogus affair, and a huge scam.
I'm running AVG Internet Security 2014, and a scan of my system doesn't pick up on or remediate the issue.
I've been doing some searching and haven't found many people reporting this - I assume it's relatively new. I did find this post (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/550751/go-pc-pro/), which is about as close to my problem as possible. I'm in the process of running a Hitman scan to see if it picks anything up, as well as a REVO uninstall.
So far Hitman hasn't found anything.
REVO launches the native uninstall routine, which of course launches the application (the only way I can close it is to start task manager and kill the processes). It's now at the point of performing a moderate scan of the system... but since the app didn't actually uininstall, I'm not sure what good it will do.
AVG prevents a lot of additional tools from running alongside it. I tried ADWCleaner, but AVG didn't like it. I assume MaleWareBytes will have the same problem.
Has anyone run into this one? Any suggestions? Please help!
