I managed to remove it by choosing a restore point one day before this awful thing infected my PC. Start-up windows in safe mode and then select your restore point.
After restore and re-boot all works fine!

Tried it, even in safe mode, did not find Antivirus IS. Found a tracking bug, but required you to purchase subscription for removal. This is not a free site.
