Please download Ice Sword from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  1. Download the zip to your desktop and extract it.
  2. Open the Ice Sword folder and then launch IceSword.exe.
  3. Will that open?

I was able to download and open the IceSword. I used the control panel to terminate the fake anti virus. What else do you suggest? How do I find it and remove it?

Thanks so much for your help thus far :-)

  • Open the Ice Sword folder and then launch IceSword.exe.
  • Then look in the left hand bottom of the program and press "Registry"
  • When the registry list opens, drag the line between the two windows so you can see which registry hive you need.
  • Next, open the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, and navigate to the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

  • Now look in the right side pane for two run values that are just random numbers.
  • Once you have found the value(s), right click it and press "Delete"
  • Okay the prompt and close IceSword.

Yes delete them, if the sub folders don't have random numbers don't delete them.
