According to Shepherd Book, there is a special level of hell that is reserved for child molesters and people who talk at the theatre. While we can all agree that there should be such a place, I want to add a third catagory of people: those who invent malware.
Right now I'm working with great diligence to remove something called "Antimalware Doctor". It has all the typical signs, weird error message and the sort telling you of the fact you have all sorts of nasties and if you get this program you shall be cleared of it all.
Well, no you can't. It is worthless. It does nothing and if you sign up, you are giving the evil people information and money.
To be honest I don't know how I got it. Was it an email with a bizarre attachment. Something on twitter hidden in the bit.ly code? I wish I knew then I could give warning.
To give you an idea how bad it is, if you google the phrase you get page after page of instructions for removal. I am still working on it.
If nothing works, I'm thinking of simply erasing the hard drive and doing a fresh install of windows. It might be the only way to defeat it.
I'll let you know.
