Never mind, I have fix it by me self! Heres how: 

 

1. Since your Samsung Galaxy S5 device is blocked by this Vanilla Reload malware virus, you will need to restart your phone to safe mode which starts up without loading any third-party add-ons. By this way, you are capable to carry out malware removal steps on your Android. Here are two examples for you to put your Android phone to safe mode.

 

a. For Samsung Galaxy S5 and others: 1) Power down. 2) Turn on till you see the Vendor’s logo, press and hold Volume Down (Galaxy S3 and others), Volume Up (HTC One and others), or Volume Down and Volume Up together (various Motorola devices).

 

Once in safe mode open your browser and soft tap near the top to bring open the web pages list. Tap the - on the vanilla reload virus page. Now restart back to normal.

Thank you for sharing the fix with us. Glad you were able to resolve your problem.

My job has blocked Europe by the firewall which means I can't access this site from the office anymore. So I will barely be here if at all. In case you cared.  :smash:
