Antivir Solution Pro. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Gabriel E. Hall - -   Also known as AntivirSolutionPro | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12

Antivir Solution Pro is a rogue anti-spyware application from the same family as AV Security Suite and Antispyware Soft. This fake program is typically promoted via fake online scanners and misleading web pop ups that appear when browsing bogus websites. Those pop ups will state that your computer is infected with adware, spyware and other malware. Then you will be prompted to download and run their malware removal tool which is Antivir Solution Pro of course. Please also note that the rogue program may come bundled with other malware or it can enter your computer through software vulnerabilities. However, most of the time it has to be manually installed. If you find that your computer is infected with this virus, please follow the removal instructions below.

Once Antivir Solution Pro is active, it will be configured to start automatically when loading Windows. The rogue program will scan your computer and detect non-existent or system files files as infections, but won’t let you remove them until you purchase the program. This is obviously a scam because it asks you to pay for a license of a program that removes non-existent infections. What is more, the rogue program will display fake security alerts on your computer screen like every one or two minutes. These alerts will range from warnings about your computer be hacked to active malware processes being detected. Some of the fake security alerts read:

Windows Security Alert. Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the scan your computer. Your system might be at risk now.

Antivirus software alert
INFILTRATION ALERT Virus Attack
Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trogan – dropper or similar.
DETAILS
Attack from:152.179.59.20, port 4703
Attacked port: 29484
Threat: BankerFox.A
Do you want block this attack?

Last, but not least, Antivir Solution Pro will blocks anti-spyware programs, Task Manager, Registry Editor and other useful system tools to protect itself from being removed. It will also block nearly all websites and especially security related ones. It won’t let you download malware removal tools that why you will have to end Antivir Solution processes first or reboot your computer is Safe Mode with Networking. As you can see, the main purpose of AntivirSolutionPro is to trick you into purchasing the program. Don’t purchase it. If you have already paid for it then contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Then please use Antivir Solution Pro removal instructions below to remove this malware from your computer as soon as possible. Also, beware of such misleading websites as antiviractive.com.

    Thank you so much for posting how to delete this program……

    This program blocked me from everything what I was doing…

    Thank you so much again and have a greate day.

  • Guest

    OH THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!
    the program/virus antivir just kept blocking me
    trust this program its great

  • Guest

    It isn't a scam. STOPzilla scans your computer; and detects real threats; then makes you pay to get rid of it. This is nothing new. The fake AVG programs are not virus scanners, they are trojan horses which make up fake threats and can literally make your computer nonfunctional.

  • Guest

    Great instructions — nothing else that I did worked. I sincerely appreciate your help.

  • Guest

    I managed to get spyware doctor on my infected pc, and run the scan. It located the threats and asked me to buy online, but it could not access the website due to the trojan!!! now what?

  • Guest

    Thanks for the information, i will noted that

  • Guest

    I followed the instructions and used Malwarebytes to get rid of Antivir…. but now when I power up I get “RUNDLL. Error loading oqnqp.dll The specific module could not be found.” I now cannot access the internet or my e-mail .Please help !!!!

  • Guest

    Thank you, made it easy to follow and remove malicious software.

  • Guest

    I tried rebooting and continued clicking F8, however my screen stays black, I can't see anything. After tapping for so long the tapping begins to come from the computer. Eventually windows comes back on line. Any help here

  • Guest

    i used malewarebytes and it found nothing but when i boot up antivir pro is there

  • P.

    Thank you so much for the information. Clear and concise. How would I go about make a donation?

  • A Happy Man

    Thank you guys/girls so much, your always helpful

  • Sam

    It was tough to remove Antivir Solution Pro But this site helped me. Thanks

  • Guest

    Thank you! I could not go on my internet for days. I tried everything but nothing worked until this.

  • Guest

    Thanks for this page- Antivir Pro infected my work laptop and so I was sweating a bit!!

    Had to use the manual method as I don't have admin rights on the machine. Didn't see all the lines in the registry- but I deleted as much as I could and it seems to have worked.

    Thanks again.

  • Joe

    thank you!!!!!!!!!!!! This worked wonderfully. if only there were more helpful websites like this one..

  • Guest

    does this really work?

  • Guest

    System restore in Safe Mode (running vista) worked for me so far. It doesn't show up in your installed programs so just restore back a day or so.

  • doc

    I got rid of this problem without any download at all. It's the best advice already posted here:

    System restore in Safe Mode.

    That's all. Problem solved.

  • Guest

    I was so scared, thank you for this

  • JohnJ

    FYI – Antivir inactivates Spyware-Doctor. You must download, install, and run Spyware-Doctor in [F8] safe mode, at least initially.

  • Guest

    Do you have to remove anything now? Or will your (Real) AntiVirus remove damaging stuff for you?

  • Guest

    this did not help…once you get the spydoctor theyb want you to purchace it. i thought this site was to help those who were infected to get rid of it. Not happy with the results

  • Guest

    you people are idiots. their are other links for antimalware, one of them is malware bits or something like that. you dont have to use spyware doctor. this guide was perfect and helped solve all my problems!

  • Guest

    The best advice given for all you non-computer intelligent people like myself. Go to Safe Mode with Network. Then just do a system restore. I can't say this is right or wrong but it worked for me and my computer is back.

  • Guest

    uh it wont let me load in safe mode with networking

  • Guest

    these instructions were really helpful. thanks!
    i used windows defender to remove it because it was already on my computer

  • Guest

    thanks a lot! this looks like it's working so far!

  • rincosplayer

    Just start in safe mode then use system restore, it seemed to have worked for me

    When I attempted to use spyware doctor, I scanned and it didn't even detect it in the first place, then it asks you to buy the program to remove the threats

  • Guest

    after several attempts from other websites; your method actually worked; thank you very much.

  • Guest

    YEEEEES!!! Thank's so much!

  • Guest

    Best advice, I tried everything, but they either wanted money or didn't work.

    Simply start in safe mode network, and system restore, worked a treat (just go back a few restore points).

  • Guest

    I'm a gamer and my computer is not the best. But i have a program called Game Booster, Witch when you use it, It stops most programs in back round. Making it more easy to do this with out all that crap popping up. Grate guide! Thanks a bunch.

  • Guest

    Cheers for the advice. I tried the Safe Mode and ytem restore first as it seemed the easiest option and it worked fine

  • misstee

    The STOPzilla would not clean or fix anything unless is subscribed or whatever… So I tried the System restore and it worked fine.
    Just restore it a few hours or a day or so before the Antivir crap started happening.

  • Guest

    tell me how to kill the process running if the cmd.exe is not working, even the regedit is not working due to this fake software

  • Guest

    Get to safe mode (F8 at startup)…go to system restore, pick a date a few days earlier than the infection, and your good as new. Then flush all cookies and history for ie just to be safe. What pain though…..should be illegal.

  • zen

    thank for the post this help alot.

  • Guest

    woooooowww thank you so much i thought for sure my computer was a gonner. thank you sooooo much. i hate the pricks that cant get a job and decide to try and scam someone rather than use their talents to actually MAKE money. Thanks again

  • Guest

    I ended the process for that stupid bug. But, I can't restore the interenet access. And. Just because I ended the process using task manager would that mean that the viral program is dorment on my computer??

  • Jenn

    Oh my gosh. Thank you thank you thank you!! I wish I could give you a hug right now for helping me save my system!!

  • Guest

    Used the manual instructions and it seems to have worked.

  • Guest

    Oh well, scanned with STOPzilla, but unfortunately you have to buy the program, off to try anoher solution.

    Anyone else thing virus and malware writers should be fed through an industrial wood chipper feet first?

  • MTO34

    I followed the advice to restart in safe mode, then use system restore to a couple days before i notice the virus. Seems to be working now. Thanks for the advice everyone.

  • Guest

    easiest solution is to get malwarebytes' anti-malware. its free and works just install in through safe mode and run it and it will get rid of it. as far as virus protection goes, i would recommend AVG.

  • Guest

    Just delete the files, the registry files are deleted as well. I looked for the registry problems and I found none of them. THen I found the files and killed the virus at the root.

  • Guest

    THANK YOU!!!! My son must have accepted this pop-up and I thought he system was history.

  • Guest

    by bg 2010-08-02
    Thanks. Did the safe mode and system restore which seemed to take care of it. Does the restore delete the registry files or virus files that could be on the computer?

  • Guest

    System restore then update all virus, malware programs. I'd like to punch these punks in their grill for doing stupid stuff like this. How about some good will payback in the form of hacking into their systems and executing a little justice for us all? Ok, sorry for the rant.

  • Guest

    From safe mode I was able to remove (random)tssd.exe from startup, and then clean out the registry as directed. Thank you!

    ps it looks like this is a big problem right now judging by all of the messages in the last few days.

  • Guest

    Top info. You are the savior.

  • Guest

    AMAZING! Worked like a charm! I followed the instructions and then ran the Malwarebytes. Once I logged back in I downloaded Kapersky antivirus for a year for like $60, its the best one out there.

  • MeOW

    hmm.. i did the same thing but my malware didnt find anything it says you 0 infected files for full scan and quick scan in safe mode.. then i did the same thing for normal mode and still did not find it… :/ what shall i do? i went to start and search and it didnt find anything 🙁 pleeaseee help..

  • Josh

    This, my friends, has been quite an intriguing experience. This spam message has popped up on my moms computer, and she paid for it. XD

    No we have sufficiently treated the situation.

  • Guest

    I'm having the same problem as another user below- the steps fixed everything, but I still can't seem to et the Internet access back up… Any tips? This has seriously altered my stance on buying programs for protection! Eff these malware writers!!!

  • Guest

    You rock. I was at screaming point, iexplore solved it in one hit. As a freelance journalist, the laptop is my lifeblood. I think I love you. I almost certainly want to have your babies.

  • Guest

    I'm not very happy with Spyware-Doctor. I spent $30 thinking it would remove the Antivir Solution Pro, but it did not find it. Now I'm trying a system restore *crosses fingers*, and even if it works, i'll still be out $30 un-necessarily….

  • K.G.

    Thank you so much!!!

  • Guest

    How come when I put it in safe mode and the LAN thingy my Internet won't work after I do it

  • Guest

    thanks this works quite well

  • Guest

    Thanks, I followed your instructions and used malwarebytes…so far so good.

  • UGH!

    my internet is still NOT working…how am I going to download the removal thing…with no internet?

  • Guest

    You are a life saver !!!!!

  • Guest

    For your internet to work, you have unclick the box for the proxy server thing, and press ok.

  • Guest

    A combination of things here helped. I put my laptop into safe mode and done the recommended things but it was still there. A system restore worked, and I am goin to look into decent laptop protection.

  • Guest

    Thank you so much for this advice. I used AVG instead of Spyware doctor and it worked just as fine. =) I greatly appreciate it your help! You helped me alot, I thought my comptuer was a goner!

  • Guest

    While the initial advise was good, it was misleading because there is no mention of having to purchase the software to solve the problem. And at $39.95 – pretty pricey for a one time fix. I used Spybot Search & Destroy – everything is back to normal.

  • Guest

    Don't panic. Start the system in safe mode and run the Spybot Search & Destroy a very small very smart program. It will solve the problem in 10 min. Have fun!

  • Guest

    I actually love you for this page. best advice on the net and got my lapop back to normal, couldn't be bothered paying £40 so did the manual way which worked aswell. thank you!

  • Guest

    Spybot (freeware) worked for me (my wifes machine) an old Dell using Window XP. It took a while as the scan had to run twice – once from Windows and then since it couldn't remove everything it asked permission to run again on reboot startup.

  • Guest

    thanks for this. this happened in my entire department too.

  • Guest

    this happened to me a few days ago and i followed these instructions and it worked.. but it happened again!! how?? i never clocked on anything, it just installs itself!

  • Hey

    I had this same thing on vista, but what I did was to ignore the whole program (don't click anything) and did a system restore. That helped with me.

    What a system restore point actually does is backup the registry and system settings.
    (Just as Spybot and other spyware things repair the registry)

  • Matt

    And this is why I'm buying an Apple computer. I think I'd literally take the life of the person that created this program, literally, with my bare hands. I'd make their family watch. This person deserves to die.

  • Guest

    i got this spyware stuck on my computer…
    I WILL DESTROY who ever made this program
    i don't care if i lose everything, ima sue the person
    if you find him, find me before you kill him
    i wanna watch him/her die

  • Guest

    Quite simple if you don't want to go through that, log off the account that's been hacked get on another administrative account and do a system restore, was about to re-install my whole computer for no reason. =)

  • Guest

    How do I do a system restore?

  • Guest

    What if after I use Malwarebytes and it says it is removed and Malware says to restart and I did. Well, after that it came back. As of right now I am not sure so I had spyware doctor as a back up. I am going to run it and see if it works be back soon.

  • Guest

    I've done this, tried malware bytes tried spyware doc. I havn't tried windows defender but I am doubting it seeing is how it is a 3rd source.
    I've tried spybot.
    Any suggestions? God knows I need em.

  • Guest

    I have tried everything and having no success. It will not let me run spyware doctor. When I try to go into safemode with networking, it will not let me connect to the internet. Some adivce would be greatly appreciated.

  • Guest

    hey before for you people try these instructions disable your system restore first
    and reboot then follow the instructions turn back on system restore and reboot and see if that solves the problem for you
