Vista anti virus 2012

Specs: Windows Vista
I have the vista antivirus 2012 virus and it is DRIVING ME INSANE. I figured out how to input a fake registration key so it would stop doing pop ups and let me have internet back, but it still redirects all of my pages and full on stops any programs I have or downloaded in attempts to delete it. It KNOWS and I am going CRAZY.

I got rid of it a month ago when I brought it into the computer guys, but I don't have another 100$ to do it again!

Please help, I am kind of computer challenged :(

I used to have Microsoft Security Essentials until this thing destroyed it

I have tried doing this post:

Now, download iExplore.exe, which is a renamed copy of RKill:

[If the file does not download, paste the following, >without the brackets<, in the address bar of your browser:

Save the file to the Desktop, and double-click on it.
Ignore any messages, and allow the file to run until the command window closes.

Without a reboot, download Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (black button with green and white icon) Save to the Desktop:

Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

Run Malwarfebytes’ AntiMalware and update the program.
Once updated, select Perform Full Scan and click the scan button.

When the scan finishes, click OK in the message box, and you will see the results of the scan.

Click the Remove Selected button to get rid of the malware.

When Malwarebytes finishes, you may be prompted to reboot. If so, reboot.

Please post the >Malwarebytes log< in your reply so we can see where we are at, and plan any additional removal strategy.

But get stuck on malwayre bytes or whatever since it won't finish a scan. 3 seconds in it closes

Please download DDS from one of these locations:

Save it to your Desktop

Right-click the dds file and select: 'Run as Administraror'

When done, DDS opens two logs:

Save both reports to your Desktop.

Since these reports are large, please go to the Uploading website:

In: Select files to upload, click 'Browse', and 'Look in' the Desktop.
Select the DDS.txt, and click on 'Open'
You will see the following:
Your file has been uploaded successfully: (Name and size of the file)

Please copy the 'Download link'.

Do the same uploading for the Attach.txt.

Please copy the 'Download link', for each report, and provide them in your reply.

Once the reports are available, we can determine what needs to be done to get rid of the malware.
