I am working on a Desktop Hp Pavalion p6710f
Windows7 Home Premium 64 Edition
I have a trogan "Win7 anti-virus 2012" virus.
Anyone know how to remove it?
Can't get on the internet..to download anything to remove.
Tried safe mode and used "last know good configuration" but did not work.
Looked in the registry and it did not show up there.
Looked in Programs installed and wasn't there either.
Is there anything I can do withour using "Recovery Tool"?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Just cleared out a similiar trojan file on a neighbor's computer.
1) Turn off computer
2) F8 into Safe mode with Networking
3) download Malwarebytes free version and install:http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_
4) Update Malwarebytes (at top)
5) Run full scan (45 minutes +/-)
6) remove trojan.
If the infected computer will not allow the download, use another computer and put the file on a thumb drive. Go back into Safe mode with networking, Then install from the thumb drive Then followed steps 4-6.

I tried the safe mode with networking and the trogan would not let me run the malwarebytes.
If you can help me from her...Thanks..I will keep trying system restore and the malwarebytes before I do the Full Recovery thing.

It redirects you with message "no Restore or Recore not found ...", You have to run this manually, do not click Restore but go to Windows\System32 right click and run as Administrator
