Have seen alleged tools which will remove the dreaded antivirus 2010 virus.

Are these tools any good,also which site can I trust to download the tool from?.

There is a 'portable' antivirus called DrWeb CureIt that you can download, save, and put on a flash drive. This is mainly for removing virus rather than malware ; click here

I would strongly advise that you run the Bleeping Computer solution in rdave13's first link to begin with - then SAS.

I know that Malwarebytes works with this infection. If you find that Malwarebytes is prevented from installing or running use the RKill from the same forum click here
