My wife's computer has been invaded by Antivir Pro. Anybody familiar with it and how to kill it?
The computer is a Dell desktop running WinXP SP3. The malware has the classic approach of a warning screen with the message "Your computer may be infected. Start virus scan now?" With other such pop-ups, to avoid touching the offending program I have always gone directly to Task Manager (ctrl/alt/del) and shut it down from there. Has always worked in the past. But Antivir blocks the Task Manager from coming up. It won't let me start AVG (which is probably running in the background anyway, but has somehow been outsmarted by Antivir.)It even sends a message via the Windows Security icon (making it appear legitimate), asking if I want to run a virus scan. I can't find any way to get around this thing. Any ideas out there?
