    Hello, this strange program called Home Malware Cleaner Showed up yesterday and stated that my computer has serious infections and threats in it and that I should clean it as soon as possible with the exact same program. What is this software? Is it real or some fake virus? How can I remove it?? :rolleyes:

    Hello,
    Bob_McCarty and TheKid7, thank you for helping!!!

    I searched for possible manual removal guides and i found those articles helpful
    ~Link removed~
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-home-malware-cleaner (and I later noticed that you suggested the same one :) )

    I read there that Home Malware Cleaner is a fake program that creates some files in my computer and then it hides them in this directory %UserProfile%\Recent\.

    But I am not that good with computer, so I was afraid to delete files from there ( i was not sure what might happen).

    However, I followed the rest of the removal instructions and did everything that was written there.

    I decided to download an antivirus program and I installed Avast, I hope it is a good choice.

    And because you also suggested Malwarebytes, I downloaded it also. :)
