How do I remove Antivir Solution Pro?

Our program Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware can detect and remove this rogue application.

  • Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or transfer it from another computer to the infected one.
  • Reboot the computer into safe mode.
    In safe mode:
    • Install Malwarebytes' Antimalware by doubleclicking mbam-setup.exe and follow the displayed instructions.
    • Once you've installed Malwarebytes' Antimalware, navigate to the Program Files\Malwarebytes' Antimalware folder.
    • Locate the file mbam.exe in this folder.
    • Now RENAME the mbam.exe in there to iexplore.exe
    • If you want to avoid some possible problems later, rightclick the file and use the "Create Shortcut" option. Drag the shortcut to your desktop so you can easily start the program once you are back in normal mode.

    [*]After you reboot back into normal mode:

    • Doubleclick the iexplore.exe (the renamed mbam.exe or use the shortcut you created) in order to launch Malwarebytes' Antimalware.
    • Once the program window is open, the first and most important part is to UPDATE Malwarebytes' Antimalware first.
    • This can be done via the Update tab > Check for updates.
    • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    • Once the program has loaded, select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected. Reboot your computer if prompted.
    • When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
    • You will be prompted to let the computer reboot, after which the rogue application should be gone.

    [*]Rename the iexplore.exe back to mbam.exe and delete the shortcut from your desktop, if you created it.
