  • Guest

  • Guest

    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!!
    Thank you!

  • Guest

    appreciate all the help… it really worked

  • MArC

    I removed this rogue program by doing a System Restore and was very successful. All 3 computers that were infected with Animalware Doctor were fixed up via a System Restore.

  • Guest

    Is this legit?!?!

  • Guest

    This is perfectly legit.

  • Guest

    If this works u guys are my heros

  • Guest

    Removed it using microsoft MSE. Online scan on the microsoft site.

  • Guest

    I done a system restore and all is now fine. 🙂 🙂

  • Guest

    because of this virus being on my computer is does not let me open taskmanager, regedit, or cmd. i can not open anything. what do i do?

  • Guest

    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?

  • FuzzyBat

    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.

  • FuzzyBat

    I did a search in C:/ for

    Antimalware*

    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?

  • Guest

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

  • Guest

    i got this when visiting tvshack.cc – 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.

  • Ron

    pep ole! reboot the computer, press F8. go 2 safe mode. go 2 accessories, tools, system restore, go like 2-3 days back and ur good. good luck.

  • Guest

  • Guest

  • Guest

    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.

  • Joost Buitelaar

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

  • Guest

    I have this but have none of these reg entries

  • Guest

    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…

  • Bia

    A file I got on my attack was Antimalware Doctor.lnkStartup

  • .

    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.

  • mehboob

    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…

  • Guest

    YOU DON'T NEED TO INSTALL THE REMOVAL SOFTWARE, TRIED IT BUT PROMPTS TO PURCHASE IT. SO THANKS TO RON, ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS…. GO TO A SAFE MODE BY PRESSING F8 WHEN STARTING COMPUTER AND THEN RUN A SYSTEM RESTOR… AND IT WORKED!!!!!!

  • Guest

    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.

  • Guest

    could a system restore work, i had antimalware doc install on my pc and my norton went wrong (thats proably connected) but when i did a system restor i cant find any trace of antimalware could it be gone or is thah a trick?

  • Guest

    Antimalware is llike a virus that will not stop selling to the user !!

  • Guest

    Antimalware doctor is virus itself, what can done I delted the file but it still popps up like I am customer.

  • Guest

    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.

  • Guest

    Hi Guys & Gals I used Pctools to remove except now the laptop starts to boot up gets upt to the welcome screen in Vista business then goes to a blank screen and just hangs. I think it has changed the startup code. Can anyone help me please.

  • Guest

    mine was under bootmdlink700sys.exe

  • Guest

    hi i deleted my bootmdlink700sys.exe thinking it was this antimalware doctor.
    how do i get it back?

  • Guest

    STOPzilla was not helpful, but would of had to purchase it first. I like that when it say free trail and you can't use it until you BUY. A waste of my time

  • Guest

    woow tis really helped

  • Guest

    obviously this virus is smarter than all you experts, you are probably
    the [people who wrote it. prove me wrong and post a real fix that works.

  • Christopher

    Thank you VERY much for this guide! Excellent job! It helped me to prevent this crap

  • Guest

    i don't get it D:

  • Hurricane

    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.

  • me!

    the processes changed. its now sfmoc700init.exe its all i could find. my version is 6.1.7600
    also im not sure but their was no hook.dll. not when i checked

  • Sam

    I found the processes also changed. The files I had to get rid of were trsin24pob.exe, xkf.exe, xmyfoa.exe and they were in Application Data in the MUI Cache. :). Thanks for your help though. That program is horrible.

  • europe
