1. Build a fucking LINUX box

and forget this shit forever.

really.

I've been using LINUX since 1995, never a problem with viruses, being hacked, trojans, or found the need for ANY anti-virus software.

Word.

You want to compute without needing to pay some fucking idiots to "keep your computer safe'??

Get a nice easy distribution of LINUX and learn a little about computer safety, and you a will be secure.

Unless the NSA wants to root you. In that case, all bets are off.

2. Try Malwarebytes and Super AntiSpyware

They have saved the day when I've fought really bad malware.

3. MalwareBytes in Safe Mode

If you have access to a clean computer google whatever info you can observe about the name of it. Some of them have very specific removal procedures.

4. Agreed. MalwareBytes in Safe Mode (with networking) will knock that fucker out of there.
