    Yeah i too was using this antivirus and was fed up a lot. now am using comodo internet security. It offers anti-malware protection, a personal firewall, a sandbox and a Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) called Defense+.

  • Allen

    Ya I agree with hercules that Comodo internet security is very effective in its malware removals and which not only destroy viruses but also prevents it.

  • Patris

    You can enter safe mode by rebooting the machine and holding down F8 key. If you dont trust the network, use a USB stick for the cleaner program or write down what you see for manual uninstall using regedit. I found this guide using my netbook, as the Internet Security 2012 malware didnt let me run task manager or process explorer. I ran Ad-Aware first, then AVG, and deleted the keys they had left untouched using regedit. Cleaned it up.
