    Restart your computer and immediately start clicking the F8 key. You should see a list – choose “safe mode with networking” . Windows safe mode will come up. Go online and download and install free version of Malwarebytes. Run a full scan. This should fix it.

    Best way for keeping your computer safe is reinstall window os and install some antivirus software to perform a full scan.

    I lost the battle last time I had it.

    I formatted and reinstalled everything. Anti-virus companies breeding viruses forcing people to buy their products.. disgusting!

    Try this automatic removal tool, this helped for me:
    Before that I went to safe mode with networking and then launched task manager to stop those randomly named processes running (like 946550101.exe) and others Uninstall.exe, SecurityTool.exe. I have read that these processes make this scam launched as soon as you reboot your computer.
