    I've read enough to know that when I get a "warning" from something called Antivirus Pro it's probably a hoax.

    My problem is, when I google on it and try to find out what to do about it, I can't tell which of the zillion or so sites I find that purport to offer removal software that I should trust!

    My usual rule of thumb is to follow the advice I find here, but when I search on that text string on this forum I don't find much here either!

    Can anyone please recommend me a safe, reliable, trustworthy way to remove this royal PITA? As of earlier this afternoon, I got its usual false positives again (I now know that's what it has been all these times), but this time when I ran AVG Free 7.5 it didn't find anything. The other times it has found and quarantined one single virus more than 30 times, now, for what that's worth.

    This afternoon, I also ran AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and it also failed to report anything other than 40 or 50 tracking cookies, which is all it ever finds!

    What should I do? :confused:

    Thx.
