    Hey guys, my other computer is infected with the Vista Anti-Spyware 2011 rouge anti spyware. I have tried to run MBAM with no luck (the malware opens up instead of MBAM) I am currently trying to see if it will work in Safe Mode. Also, this is my other computer and because of the virus it has no internet access (anytime I try to navigate to a page the malware pops up) so please keep that in mind as you're giving instructions.

    Thanks a lot guys

    Alright, so this is just and update and a bump since I haven't had any replies in 24 hours

    I tried to run MBAM in safe mode and the virus still popped up so this thing is pretty entrenched. Help me out here guys, thanks


    Thanks

    Ok so I just tried to fix the problem myself, but I couldn't because I needed admin privileges, so I logged in to the admin account. Strangely enough I the virus isn't present in the admin account! So does this mean I just have to delete the other account and the virus is killed? The other account didn''t have anything important anyway so it can be deleted without trouble.

    Please explain and help, and thanks again.
