Antivirus 2011 (also known as AntiVirus 2011) is not a legitimate anti-spyware as you may think. AntiVirus 2011 is a rogue anti-spyware which is designed to fool you, trustful PC users, into taking it serious and then steal your money. Haling from a new generation of spywares, program offers for victims to use some basic its functions and then announces numerous infections detected after running a full system scan. Further, Anti-Virus 2011 will keep telling that its unregistered version can’t remove these threats from your computer and will ask purchasing “licensed” its version for fixing everything. That’s how Anti-virus 2011’s brainwashing campaign ends. Don’t feel comfortable after noticing any of its traces because only Anti-Virus 2011 is the virus which must be removed for good.
In general, Anti-Virus 2011 is infiltrated with the help of trojans viruses that look for security holes and after finding some download all the data needed. Then, the same Trojan makes useful configurations to help this roguware launch automatically once the computer boots up and easily display fake system scanners and pop-up ads of its own. Anti-Virus 2011 generates only misleading information about hundreds of spyware detected trying to make users concerned about their PCs. They are completely bombarded by tons of popup ads also reporting “dangerous threat” and finally recommended fixing everything with the “full” its version. Of course, people are misguided about the way how they can remove “detections”. Anti-Virus 2011 will ask people first purchase its commercial version and, moreover, will make some redirections to its official websites for getting a payment much faster.
Anti-Virus 2011 can’t help its victims because there is nothing what needs to be fixed. The only aim of this malware is to rip people off, so delete this application and you will save your money and computer as well. Moreover, hackers may also steal your credit card details, so please contact your credit card details to save your data. While tying to remove Anti-Virus 2011, start Safe Mode with Networking at the beginning of the procedure and then stop its processes and delete the files of this malware for good.

Scan with TDSS Killer first, also try launching other anti-malware programs. AVG is not that good against them.
Then check this guide: http://www.2-viruses.com/how-to-enable-task-manager-and-registry-editor-after-malware-attack
This virus killed my laptop. When trying to desinstall it I had to enter a code (a very log string). It said that antivirus 2011 wasn’t completely removed, that my laptop dhad become a spamsender, that the police would be notified. I rebooted a couple of times and “BLANK” Mij laptop doen’st even want to start up anymore. Broke, dead, lost thousands of info.
I did a system restore from safe mode to an earlier date. Seems to have done the trick!
Boot the infected computer in safe mode with networking,
go online and download MalwareBytes
Install, update, and run FULL scan. Reboot when done.
Restart windows normally
Run MalwareBytes again.
I have a problem while trying to start in safe mode or safe mode with network.
it seems to froze wile iniciating and it never start windows.
I am concerned, how can I stop the malware or make safe mode work?

The only way I have found of removing the latest incarnation is to do the following.
1 – remove hard drive from infected PC
2 – take hard drive to a second, non-infected, PC and connect as secondary drive. I have an ide/sata to usb adapter so I can hook it up externally and then just plug it in to the usb port.
3 – make sure the second PC has the latest free Malwarebyes software (www.malwarebytes.org)and clean the infected hard drive from there.
4 – put cleaned drive back in original PC and it should be ok.
