  • MalwareBytes anti-malware removes this infection as well as Spyware Doctor. Green AV blocks task manager and other tools or programs that's why manual removal can be quite complicated. However you can take a chance. Manual removal guides:

  • comgeek and ignys, thank you for your posts. Please note, however, that this is not a general malware removal help forum. OneCare users should contact OneCare support for malware that was missed by OneCare or cannot be removed successfully by OneCare.
