    the problem with this Virus Program is that it is now fine tuned enough to shut down your Fire wall, and all your legitimate programs that pertain to virus, malware, and other infections. I tried to turn them back on and Antimalware would not allow it. Every time you close one pop up window in this program, another pops up. I even tried to uncheck the setting that allows it to open when windows starts to no avail. This monster showed up on my 13 yr. old granddaughter’s computer. I finally gave up and wiped the hard drive, and started over, so she has a fresh install.
    Anything I tried to do to uninstall or get rid of this infection was in vain. Her computer is clean now, and she is more careful to update her IOBIT 360 and her microsoft security essentials and her Advanced System Care programs.

    A good free program to use is Malaware Bytes. Download, install, update ( as free it does not keep itself up to date ), if virus wont let you install then install in safe mode with networking ( on boot up press F8 key ). Safe mode with networking allows you to do updates of Malawarebytes.

    Run a few scans in safe mode and when the majority have been removed then run in normal mode.

    When it reports cant find anymore do full scan to make sure then update your own virus software and do full scan.

    Expect the whole lot to take about 6-7 hours to make sure it is really gone !
