This website does not advocate the actions or behavior of AV Security Suite and its creators. for anyone else struggling, these were my experiences: a) running MBAM whilst not in Safe Mode DIDN'T remove the AV Security Suite - it kept coming back b) I have windows Once installed, this fake antivirus program will report numerous false system security threats, display fake warnings and pop-ups, redirect searches, disable Task Manager and block legit anti-malware or anti-virus programs.

Detect and remove the following AV Security Suite files: Processes %Documents and Settings%\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\[random string]\[random string].exe %Documents and Settings%\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\[random string]\[random string]tssd.exe Registry Keys HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AvScan HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download "RunInvalidSignatures" ="1"
