Hello,

It will be my pleasure to assist you with your computer today. For removing AntiMalware Doctor virus, I am going to recommend a free program called Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

I recommend printing out this page so that you can easily refer to it during the process.

1. Click here to go to Malwarebytes' website and then scroll down to the bottom of the new page that appears and click on the blue 'Download Free Version' button.
2. Click 'Download Now' again on the new webpage to start your download. Please select 'Run' when given the option for the download.
3. When the installation program launches, Click 'OK' for English (or choose a different language if you would prefer).
4. Click 'Next'.
5. Click 'I accept the agreement'.
6. Click 'Next'.
7. Click 'Next'.
8. Click 'Next'.
9. Click 'Next'.
10. Click 'Next'.
11. Click 'Install'.
12. Click 'Finish'. Leave both of the check boxes checked.
13. Click 'Perform full scan'.
14. Click 'Scan' button in the lower-left.
15. Ensure all of your hard drives are selected (usually C:) and do not check any CD drives.
16. Click 'Start Scan'.
17. It will take at least a couple hours for the scan to complete, so I don't recommend waiting at the computer.
18. When the scan is done it will give you the option to remove all of the items that it found, click Yes. If it asks to run on your next restart, select Yes and then restart your computer if it does not automatically do so.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Hunter O.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
