PS Guard

My computer has been infected by a virus put there by an antivirus software vendor who want me to instal their product. The virus has changed my wallpaper and removed the menu for changing it back. It has also changed my home page to theirs. I also keep getting popups telling me the the popups are because the PC is infected. I have run ASquared but it hasn't worked.

Try running your AV and A² in safe mode (Tap F8 on boot) Also turn system restore off before scanning.

Type ps guard in google and you will get loads of links to remove it. My mate had it a while back and he said it was a pain to get rid off.

One person on the web says Adaware removes it

I would still scan in safe mode.

Tried Adaware but can't get it to run. I download the file but when I try to instal the soft ware it just hangs.
