Recently, I think my computer was infected by a virus called MS removal tool.What it does is it runs like it's looking for spyware/malware/virus and comes up shows that it has found a ton of them. When you ask to remove it, it charges you 49.99 (regulars) and 69.99 (premiums) for the software. I cannot scan the computer (I have Symantec Norton)and 80% of the programs doesn't work anymore. Please if you have a solution, tell me how to remove it?
How to remove MS Removal Tool ?
Put your computer in safe mode
Do a system restore and it will go.
If this doesn't work than please do the following steps :
Turn off the PC and restart your computer pressing F8 key and restart in safe mode with networking
Once computer starts, go to internet and download the Antivirus doctor and restart your computer once the download is done
The scan will find the problems and it might tell you that you need to buy full version to remove problem (you don't have to buy it)
Restart your computer normally after the scan and the MS removal tool should be gone
