My brother in laws laptop has a prog called advanced virus remover and I think its a virus . It seems to have hijacked the system saying that you cant use your pc until you have run your antivirus prog . I have run spybot and found 13 viruses but this is still there . I cant find it to remove it in add and remove progs and it seems to block me using a usb pen to put avast on. It wont even let me run cmd / or chkdsk .
Any ideas

reload the whole operating system by formatting the hard drive is the only way, no tool in the world can remove a virus like that without formatting

good luck
