    "Outstanding product!!!!!"

    August 24, 2009  |   By ritter002


    My computer was hacker attacked yesterday, and the rogue program called "Advanced Virus Remover" was installed.

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware eliminated all of the virus!


    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is not going to repair damage done by that rogue antivirus program, but I didn't expect it to.


    The attack I received yesterday afternoon installed a fake antivirus program called "Advanced Virus Remover".

    Norton Antivirus couldn't eradicate it,

    nor could the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool,

    nor could Windows® Defender.

    The PC Tools AntiVirus Free Edition, Version:, using the Quick Scan, found absolutely NOTHING.

    I downloaded the Free Version, and ran it. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware eradicated all of the virus!!!!! I guess I just couldn't believe a free anti-malware program could do what the "Big Boys" could not.
