Antivirus Soft Removal Guide
Antivirus Soft is a rogue anti-virus program designed to redirect Internet users to scam security websites. Antivirus Soft also causes malfunctions on the Windows platform, especially tools such as folder options, task manager and control panel. Antivirus Soft uses scare tactics to scam users into purchasing a paid version of this useless program. Antivirus Soft will not resolve the issues it has brought to the compromised computer.

This is what worked for me, doesnt sound particularly fancy but worked even after a restart

All i did was downloaded Rkill (google it) which only works using firefox, if not try starting your pc in safe mode:

(for xp repeatedly press F8 while your computer is starting up and select SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING)

Restart your computer once you have downloaded this small file and quickly run it before Antivirus Soft has a chance to start, this should kill the virus

To be extra safe, download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program and perform a full system scan to make sure all traces of the virus have been removed.

Hope this helps!

P.s. Who ever created Antivirus Soft & Antvirus Live etc.. is going to get a kick in the C**T :)
