If your PC is hijacked by a fake anti virus this is the tutorial for you!

To begin "Un-hijacking" you PC you will need a tool to actively "put to sleep" or "suspend" the virus(s).

Rkill will allow you to Download, Install, and Run an anti-virus program.

Whats great about rkill is that by suspending the malware / virus processes, it allows you temporary use of your PC.

In many cases without "Rkill", you could not download or install a known anti-virus program or other software and website for that matter!

Because it would be blocked by a Rootkit or other malware.

This tool is only active after you start it and will not automatically start back up when you restart the PC.

More info on Rkill

NOTE: Hijacked computers usually offer a bogus antivirus program that usually tries to scare you into buying that program. Computers with a bogus antivirus may flag rkill.exe as a trojan or virus, disregard these warnings

After you have ran the Rkill Tool you should be able to download and install a Free Anti-Virus program such as MalwareBytes or Avira.

After you have downloaded the anti-virus and installed it; do the following:

  • Reboot the PC

  • When the Windows Start Screen is loading hit F5 key

  • Choose Safe Mode with Networking

  • Run the Anti Virus Software

You may need to run multiple scans in safe mode before everything is cleaned up.

I also recommend downloading and using ComboFix from

Combofix is powerful, free, and user friendly.
