    My dad had this virus. When programs can't open, try right-clicking and choose "Run as administrator." The program should then run.

    Everything is running fine except for IE. I just want to get rid of the problem permanently.

    Get on another computer if you have one. There are tons of guides out there on removing Win 7 Antivirus 2012. My dad had this same problem. The malware will prevent you from going to websites that will help you get rid of it. So, you need to go to a non-infected computer and get all the tools and the removal guide. If you don't have another computer, go to a friends and get everything you need onto a flash drive.

    For me, once a computer is infected, even if I remove the malware/virus, I can't trust the computer anymore until I reformat/reinstall.

    turn on computer and keep pressing F8 to boot into safe mode as mentioned before. you will not get rid of this bugger when you are logged in as normal.

    Thanks for the tips. Everything seems to be working fine at the moment, so using another computer may not be required right now. It might reappear later tho, like it did last night. I will try running the scan again in safe mood like MrDJ suggested.

    Manually removing suspicious registry files and suspicious files in the appdata folder. This was enough to seriously cripple it to the point where the computer could run RKill and MBAM.

    The results kept showing that the virus was located in an appdata folder for me as well. Can you tell me where I can access that folder? I can't find it. Would you mind giving a step my step instruction on how you got rid of it? Are RKill and MBAM both free programs? Thanks.
