Antivirus Suite. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

Antivirus Suite is a rogue anti-spyware program, a clone of Antivirus Soft malware. As a typical rogue program, AntivirusSuite is distributed though the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners, bogus online video websites. It can also come bundled with other malware. Once installed, Antivirus Suite will run a fake system scan and display a list of malware infections on your computer and state that you should purchase the program to remove the infections.

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 you computer. Your system might be at risk now.

Windows Security Alert
Application cannot be executed. The file cmd.exe is infected. Do you want to active your antivirus software now?

    my computer will not let me enter safe mode at the start. is there any other way around this??

  • Guest

    when you start your computer, repeatedly hit the F8 key until it opens the safemode option menu. You may end up starting your computer a few times as timing is of the essence when trying to do so.

    Thank you so much. Sites and information like this is very useful

  • Guest

    I'm in safe mode but it won't let me open Internet Explorer just Firefox. And it won't let me open Windows Defender either.

  • Guest

    im going to see if it works. it wont let me access the internet!!!!!

  • Guest

    I was not able to enter safe mode at the start. However following the other instructions seemed to work. If I just do a scan now is that good enough?

  • MK

    This worked perfectly. Remember that to enter Safe Mode, you have to shut down and then power back on your machine… a Restart won't go back far enough to hit F8.

    Thank You! Thank You!

    If you can hit CTRL + ALT + Delete and get Task Manager to run IMMEDIETLY after start-up, BEFORE the AV SUITE program starts, you can then END PROCESS and get control of your computer back. Just remember to stop the ***********ssd.exe file.
