We have a Anti virus program trying to start on our computer, other than McAfee Security Center, how do delete?

Alpha Anti virus is trying to install on my system when I already have McAfee Security. How do we delete this new program?

    Start your PC in safe mode with networking by hitting F8 while your computer is booting (start tapping it before Windows starts to load to get the boot options menu). Then go and download Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/, you might have to download it on another computer and put it on a flashdrive if the site was blocked by the malware, and rename the file to prevent that from being blocked as well), and install, update, and run it. Then remove what it finds and restart your computer.

    Download, install, update and run full scans, in SAFE MODE*, with these programs…

    Then re-start.

    *Note: On start up (before Windows loads) keep tapping either F5 or F8 then use arrow keys to highlight ‘Safe Mode with networking’ click on a user account, enter the password (if you don’t know it, there probably isn’t one so leave it blank) and hit enter/return.

    McAfee isn’t going to help you in this case. You should try an anti-spyware program. Some of the better free ones are Spyware Doctor (available for free at pack.google.com), Malwarebytes, and SUPERAntiSpyware. You will probably have to download whichever program you choose on a different computer, rename the setup file, and install from a flash drive. If you managed to do that, then update the software and scan your system. If not, then try to remove Alpha Antivirus manually:

    That is a fake program
    Boot to safe mode with networking
    Download malwarebytes antimalware
    Install it in safe mode, update it, run a full scan, and remove anything it finds.
    Also download superantispyware when you are finished
    Make sure you install superantispyware in normal mode, since superantispyware does not allow you to install itself in safe mode.
    Then update it, run a complete scan, and remove anything it finds.

    Use combofix from bleepingcomputer.com, then go download malwarebytes from softpedia.com or cnet.com and use it(rename the installer if it doesn’t let

    you install it such as winlogon.exe), then clean the rest of the virus with superantispyware and Hitman Pro 3.5 from softpedia.com/cnet.com
