    Ref: Rogue suspect WinAntiVirus

    My Sister in law has this nasty on her PC .---

    Looking for suggestion's on how to best remove it.
    Its causing lots of popups to web sites
    and stating she has issues with her PC..--
    I think its also prompting her to "pay up "to fix the problem

    Like I said - this is a nasty pest

    The free version of SuperAntispyware will remove it if my memory serves me correctly.

    SAS free is on the ball with these infections more often then not(Winfixer type),normaly within 12 hrs of new variants appearance in the wild.I know because i test it daily against a wide range of infections(2-:cool: daily to submit anything its occaisionally misses for their target database inclusion.It has been in my experience the best freeware cleaner of fraudware/smitfraud labelled infections(free codec install) for quite sometime now:)

    I got the same infection earlier this year on a PC. I used VUNDOFIX.EXE to remove the trojan program. You can download it at atribune.org. Norton's website also has a VUNDO/VIRTUMONDE utility remover. The program has several variants so the proper method of removing it will vary. The pop up ads are an attempt to induce you to buy their software. It does not mean that you have the infection that the pop up message is alerting you about. The trojan takes advantage of a flaw in the earlier Java program versions so make sure that you update the Java program if you have not done so.
