  1. I got this virus on my computer and was able to download “Malewarebytes Anti- Maleware” and it removed all of the infected files, but when I go to my C drive from My Computer, the “Your PC protector” still has a folder and a shortcut in there, but it doesn’t appear on the “add/Remove program” feature in the control panel. How do I go about removing that folder off my C Drive?

  2. i tried the malwarebytes to remove it but it wont let me open it once i downloaded it so im trying the spyware dr on this site to see if that works, although its taking forever to download because my computers so messed up now…any other suggestions? has anyone used the spyware dr and it worked?

  3. Thanks,it worked for me.I couldn’t figure out how to get it off,it blocked everything I tried. I could have never got it off if not for you,Thanks again

  4. This was downloaded twice onto my computer in one day… first time I did system restore and it worked, but the second time I didn’t. Thanks for your tips! BTW — I got this spyware from lamebook.

  5. When downloading Malwarebytes do a “save as” and save the file to the destop and rename it before saving it to something generic like Jen.exe. Reboot into safe mode by tapping the f8 key on boot and open Jen.exe and this will run the set up and allow install of Malwarebytes.@Jen

  6. Oddly enough, I was blocked from downloading any spyware removals; YourPCProtector shut the sites down instantly saying that the sites contained malware and keylogging codes. Deleting the folders/files is blocked as well, even in safe mode. Once this thing runs its course, it seems improbable of removing. I’m having to wipe the drive. For what it’s worth mine came from Facebook, and there’s a similar one on Encyclopedia Dramatica.
