    Thank you! Malwarebytes removed this infection at the first scan!
    Thank you so much!

  • Jay Desai

    Thank you Stelian. This guide was very helpful. This process took me most of the day, but much of that may be attributed to my lack of technical skill! In addition to the steps you outlined, I ran CCleaner at the very end, and it did pick up some additional junk . Computer seems to be OK now. My thanks to you again Stelian.

  • D.

    Thanks, man. That helped me a lot, but I still have a doubt. I scanned with Malwarebytes (and it looks like the virus is removed), Hitman pro and then with Emisosoft but on my desktop and my Windows 8 application screen is still an icon of System Doctor 2014 sh*t. I know it sounds like a stupid question, but is that alright? Because after scanning with Malwarebytes the other anti-malware programs didn’t find any threat. Could I simply delete the icon and do my normal stuff?

    • http://malwaretips.com/ Stelian Pilici

      Hello D,
      That icon is just harmless left over from the System Doctor 2014 infection. To remove it, right click on it, and select Delete.
      Stay safe!
