  1. Even once you have removed all those files, the SSFK file renamed to “Malware” is still running, which means that the virus is still on eventhough it is not working properly.

    To fully remove it you must find SSFK services on the Windows Task Manager (right next to the Process window). Click on the services button located at the bottom-right corner of the Windows Task Manager and accept to run as ADMINISTRATOR.

    A new window will appear. Find the SSFK name, left click on it and select properties. Another window will appear, modify the “startup type” from AUTOMATIC to DISABLED and click on the “Apply” button located at the bottom-right corner of the window. (this will prevent the program to run under any circumstance on your PC)

    Back on the service window, left click again on SSFK and choose stop. Now you’re ready to go back to the “SFK” folder and remove it with the renamed “Malware” file in it.
