    For those of you struggling with these instructions, I wasn't sure how It worked as I couldn't find all the files shown to delete. By simply deleting all of the present files listed (not all of the ones on the list) It has ridden me of the irritating virus!!

  25. Guest says:
    July 30th, 2010 at 9:07 am

    I have all the correct tools to get rid of this malware doctor, but it blocks ANYTHING i try to boot up or turn on. It reports it as a trojan trying to attack my computer. Is there another method around this madness?

    I'm trying to get rid of this bugger from my Windows. Just out of curiousity, HOW did all of us get that in the first place? Where did that come from? I'd like to take prevention measures.

  27. FuzzyBat says:
    August 4th, 2010 at 6:08 am

    I did a search in C:/ for


    and it returned this file called MpRTP.dll and it's found in C:Windowswinsxsx86_security-malware-windows-defender_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_579306edb982ae36

    Do you guys think it's dangerous?

  28. Guest says:
    August 4th, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    the virus must have changed or something, because half the file names are different, and there is no hookdll.dll file.

  29. Guest says:
    August 6th, 2010 at 11:08 am

    i got this when visiting – also having trouble with removal because I think I have a more advanced version, it won't let me open task manager or perform any of the functions necessary to perform these steps.

    On Vista SP2 I can open TaskManager and stop the process. Only that there seems to be a new version out and the process name is newsecureapp70700.exe. Registry entries still under 'Antimalware Doctor Inc'.

    Norton Antivirus sucks. I had Mcaffe for years through comast and it worked fine. This went right through Norton and nothing will touch it. My computer is hosed. Thanks you Norton MORONS.

    Simply perform a system restore to a point in time before the infectation. No need to performs al these difficult steps!

    I just built up a brand new system and left it alone for an hour with nothing running and now I have this? Must have leaked in from copying in some old files. I haven't run a browser only run driver disks. I normally run Macs and Linux and this never happens, thanks for the tip I'm out of here…

    October 21st, 2010 at 8:10 am

    I think I managed to get rid of it. The app on my pc was called aerovision70700.exe. I used Malwarebyte's, then did a sweep overthe registry for leftovers and searched my pc for files with the apps name on it.

    Seems to have worked.

    October 22nd, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    woww mmmmaaannnnn… 'system restore' really works. I was absolutely sure that this problem started in the last 24 hours. by 'system restore', the system went back to how it was 3 days ago and there's no antimalware doctor there anymore. all my data is safe as well…

    Yes System restore very well worked for me and I could get rid of Antimalware Doctor easily without any antivirus software. So Thanks for mentioning this quick fix.

  53. Guest says:
    December 6th, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    December 27th, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    The process that you have to end may vary with the words it uses, but it always ends with 70700.exe. That's the one you need to end.

    System restore worked for me too. In windows 7, just type ‘System Restore’ in the search function and restore to a time before you downloaded the bad files.
