How Did I get infected with Win 7 Antivirus Plus 2013?

In our sample testing we located this threat through a trojan downloader virus. Once this virus was on our test computer it went out and downloaded the fake antivirus program. It’s viral that you run a full virus scan even after following our manuel removal guide to ensure you are not infected with anything else.

We like Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. This anti-virus client is from Symantec. They are the same makers of Norton anti-virus. However the SDA interface is very simple to use and we like it better then Norton.

What is Win 7 Antivirus Plus 2013 Doing to My Computer Right Now?

The goal of this false security client is not to harm your computer but to block access to programs and basically attempt to box you into a corner so you can’t get anything done un till you purchase the client. They will attempt to scare users into making a purchase by showing false scan results and constant warnings of an infection and hackers getting in. This is all a trick to scam you out of your money. Don’t trust a thing this program is telling you.

Win 7 Antivirus Plus 2013 Manual Removal Procedures

Like most other false anti-virus clients we need to stop the main executable from running so we can use other programs.

The virus name is like the below

  • [random].exe ( Example is rhf.exe or 3458fgfjr3fv.exe) This will change over time so you are looking for a file that is named something that makes no sense at all.

Here are several ways to stop this threat

A. Browse to the file location shown below under File Locations and re-name the file first and then restart your computer. Then browse to that file location again and delete the file. You can not delete a file while it is in use.

B.  Boot into Safe Mode and delete the file. Again look at the file path below. You can also boot into “safe mode with networking” and download Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. You will be able to install it and run the virus scan. Learn how to boot into safe mode here

C: Log-into another users account and see if you can delete the file. Again use the File Locations below to locate the file

E:  Start the Task Manager the very second you login and terminate the process that way. Then locate and delete the file

F: Use the command line to kill the task and then delete the file using the File Locations below. This is a little more advanced but we have a guide on this on http://www.removevirus.org/kill-running-process-using-command-line

File Locations

Take note that the below file locations contain hidden files and folders. For instance the AppData folder is a hidden folder. In order to view these folders you will need to show hidden files and folders. Learn how to at http://www.removevirus.org/show-hidden-files-and-folders

Windows Vista/7:

In one of the folder paths below you should find the file

  • C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\Local
  • C:\Users\USER NAME\AppData\

Once you have deleted the above executable, Win 7 Antivirus Plus 2013 will no longer be running. At this time you need to run a full virus scan. RUN THE  SCAN!. We recommend wither SpyHunter. You need to ensure no other viruses are on your computer.  So many people skip this very simple step.  Take an extra few min tues and ensure you have all the viruses removed.

If you can’t seem to delete this virus you can hire a professional to help. We recommend http://www.pcninja.com
