    I am using ESET Smart Security ver 4 with updated virus signature database. My system is attacked by Rogue spyware, Antivir Solution Pro. Eset Smart Security cant detect and clean it and I am getting pop ups to buy this spyware.

    This rogue spyware act in the same way like Antivirus Live and Antivirus Pro 2010. I cant open any other applications.
    Is there any permanent solution by ESET to these rogue spywares as it keeps on bugging again and if cleaned, comes in a different varients

    Now how do I clean this Antivir Solution Pro?
    Administrators, please fix these bugs in next virus signature update

    Thanks mate, I have tried with full version of Spware Doc in safe mode - full scan ..... it didnt work either, I have tried all modes..... sleep mode, cry mode, shout mode, yell mode, mad mode, weep mode, unhappy mode, bugger off mode, laid back mode, eyes crossed mode, blink mode .... nothing worked.

    on the Serious side, I would like the moderators to look at this problem and fix this bug in next virus update as the other users may hit by this rogue spyware.

    Moderators, developers.... please help me out

    BTW the link which you have provided explains the process but talk about registry keys and I dont want to mess with it around or else the computer will stop working

    Have you tried Malwarebytes

    http://www.malwarebytes.org/

    that usually manages to get rid of these rogue anti virus programs for me.

    Sometimes takes a couple of run throughs to clear it all up, and running it in safe mode as well if necessary.

    I've just had one of the laptops in the company effected with this.

    Eset AV doesn't do anything with it but Malwarebytes found it and has removed it. Just about to check to make sure it's actually gone

    the free version of malwarebytes antimalware removes antivir solution pro very easily.

    I had to clean up a few of these this week...

    The procedure I used was:

    1. boot into safe mode with networking
    2. reset internet explorer using Internet Options | Advanced | Reset
    3. download ccleaner - run it to clean up temp files
    4. find the long random named binary in startup items - remove that startup entry
    4. download and install MWBytes antimalware - run a quick scan - clean all infections found
    5. restart normally
    6. done.
