Hi there folks, My fathers PC has AV Security on it for some reason and for the life of me I cannot get rid of it. I used a guide on google search and ended up buying Spyware Doctor to try and get rid of it but that did not work either. It is brutal and flashes up Security Warnings constantly and will not let me launch any spyware programs etc and seems to hijacks google (a google search gets routed to another bogus search engine).
Anyone any ideas with this? Pretty desperate at present and it is frustrating as hell. Every 30secs or so some poxy warning flashes up and I cannot get rid of it.
An online search has not been great. I have found a general guide but cannot find a more specific one i.e. I do not know what file is causing the problem.
If the various programmes won't shift it, a reinstall of operating system will be OK (except you'll lose all data). However, Bleeping computer/malwarebytes is normally very good for removing these pests
