Fake Security Virus - "Activate Security"

Post by jbruhn on Wed Mar 31, 2010 4:29 pm

My computer is infected with a fake security virus. The screen contains the name "Activate Security" It has disabled my antivirus programs, it will not allow my computer do install malware removal programs, I cant get open and use task manager. Any suggestions as to how I can remove this virus from my laptop?

Thanks,
Jim

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.

Thanks for the help. I also got onto the websites online chat and threatened them with legal action and I immediately was directed to a site which uninstalled this problem.
