Antispyware Soft has taken over

Post by harrissj1 on Mon 10 May 2010, 11:37 pm

On my son's laptop the Antispyware Soft fake antivirise software took over all of the programs on the computer. I could not open any application on the computer with out it telling me that it was infected. I found some solutions online but when I tried to attempt them I still got the infection popup and it would not allow the programs to open. The Command Prompt would not open, and even the Task Bar would not run without this popup preventing me from using it. I would let you go to the internet, only to sign up for their service, but after I left the computer alone and came back it had opened over 20 Tabs on my IE to porn sites. Am I screwed or is there still something I can do to save this computer?
