Answer What the person below my answer forgot is the malware will most likely close the browser before you download any of this software. My solution is consult a friend near by and see if they have a store bought copy of an antivirus program. I recommend windows live onecare. You can get windows live oncecare by visiting http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/3/communications/trytoday.htm Maybe you can download it to a cd. Good luck you are up against a formidable opponent AntiVir64 is malware/spyware capable of closing a web browser window and redirecting a new window to a site charging for its own removal. A scan with SpyBot:Search and Destroy, AVG Free, SpyWare Blaster, Kapersky,or AdAware should detect and remove this. www.download.com is a good source for anti-spyware/malware software. The guide at BleepingComputer.com, listed below, will enable you to remove this infection for free.

Not to be confused with AntiVir: Antivir is a security suite from Avira. It is available in many configurations.
