Windows PC Aid Removal

Hi there, my computer is infected with a malware called Windows PC Aid. It has overrun my computer and I cannot do anything but to watch how it destroys everything. First, it disables my antivirus program. When I run the antivirus, nothing happens and it does not respond to my command. Now, it is beginning to mess up my Internet. Whenever I did a search, Windows PC Aid will display a blank page stating that I cannot view the web site due to virus infection.

My system was infected when I execute an update for Adobe Flash. All the while, I think it was a genuine update, until I submitted the file to Virus Total and it detected it as Trojan.FakeAV.

What can I do now? I can’t access the Internet and programs are not allowed to run on my computer. Even if I can get a removal tool, I think I may not be able to run it because of this virus. Please advise me for an effective Windows PC Aid removal.

Thanks,
Amit

    If you cannot access the Internet and don’t have another computer where you can download the tool, I suggest you need to activate the Windows PC Aid. You may use the code I got from another forum:
    0W000-000B0-00T00-E0020

    After you have activated the malware, it will now allow you to access the Internet. Download Malwarebytes anti-malware and install it on your computer. Then, run a full scan. It will detect files and registry values that are linked to Windows PC Aid, be sure to remove them all. Restart the computer and its done.

    Thanks nab098. Activating the fake program seems to work. Right after I input the code, I regain my access to the Internet and begin downloading of Malwarebytes. When I scan the PC, Malwarebytes catches all the viruses and instantly removes them.

    As my friend suggests, I also need to run TDSSKiller. That’s what I am doing now.
