How do you remove Cyber Security?

  Chris Webster 18:52 12 Oct 2009


My sister has been 'infected' with Cyber Security, I've tried everything I know to try and remove it but I can't get rid of it. It won't let me uninstall it through Add and Remove Programms and I can't get her laptop to boot up in Safe Mode to try it that way.

Packard Bell Easy Note - XP

Any suggestions please.

Regards, Chris.

I have not used this, nor do I know what it costs, but this does purport to remove Cyber Security ...

Can you get malwarebytes to download.
click here

Is it Vista? Can you run Windows Defender. Don't know if that would find this particular one ?

Thank you all,

I've downloaded Malwarebytes. I'll see her tomorrow and let you know if it's removed it.

Thanks everyone, Malwarebytes did the trick, it removed Cyber Security and a few other nasties she had.

I've got A-Squared and Ad-Aware 8.1 on my laptop and now Malwarebytes too.
