Fake antivirus infections are dangerous not only in the sense that once infected your computer is then pretty much in the hands of people behind the virus, but you’re also gonna be asked for money, so financial loss is also possible. They completely neutralize genuine antivirus software that you have installed on the system, meaning that it’d be impossible for you to scan with anything other than the rouge antivirus. Here’s a few pointers to help you get started.

How to remove fake antivirus infections and optimize Windows with Anvi Rescue Disk

Use the bootable USB flash drive creator that you get and create a bootable flash drive. Or you can actually burn a CD. If you don’t have .ISO burning software, try to find one, like for example ImgBurn. When the CD or USB drive are created, restart your computer and set it so that it boots from either CD or USB.
