I have posted this at a W7 support forum but I think it really belongs here !

I'm working on a W7 PC which has had 2gro "antivirus" software paid for and installed (silly person !).

Oddly, the installation also installed something called AMMYY remote control software and the PC is running very slowly. And there are some very odd links to this application eg http://www.pressreleasepoint.com/2gro-win-more-clients-despite-fake-scam

I've uninstalled the 2gro stuff (I think) and am running a Malwarebytes scan (and its come up with Fake Antivirus 7 as well as a couple of Trojans - all deleted now).

I've also disabled Remote Access (which had been enabled, by AMMYY I think).

Meantime has anyone come across this outfit, and is there anything specific I need to look for/clean up ?

Any help appreciated

Sorted !

It was Antivirus7 - nothing technically harmful but it enticed the PC's owner to part with quite a lot of $$

Cleaned up with Malwarebytes.
