Help me remove gorillaprice virus

My browser started to pop-up ads from gorillaprice yesterday. I just noticed that the adware only uncovers when viewing merchant web sites like Amazon, Ebay, Bestbuy, etc… Normal Internet browsing is not affected by the virus at all.

I found a GorillaPrice entry under add/remove program of Control Panel. When I try to uninstall the software, it opens a browser asking me to download ‘Uninstaller’. Funny thing is, my antivirus detects gorillaprice uninstaller as a threat so it was instantly put into quarantine. I did try to delete gorillaprice.exe from Program Files folder but Windows says it is being used and cannot be removed.

Scanning the computer with several antivirus programs doesn’t help in any way. Actaully, no threats or any suspicious entity were found during the scan. I did use System Restore instead to reverse the changes that gorillaprice virus has made. Sadly, the adware is still in one piece. I really cannot remove this unwanted program from my PC.

Is there any other method I should carry out to remove gorillaprice from the browser and Windows? I am willing to try any valid removal tool that you will recommend.

Thanks,
Richi Dan
