also we (or most of us) came up with a temporary solution for that so we figured that out (kinda) already

Freudian slip? You sure it's yours?

Most antivirus have a specific piece of software, or specific method, to remove them. They can embed themselves pretty well in a system (for good reason; it wouldn't be very useful to have an antivirus just be deleted by any virus that asked nicely).

Look it up on the antivirus creator's official website, they'll probably have a tool to remove the software correctly.

You just said you downloaded and installed the program and now you don't know what it is and suspect it's an anti-virus? How dodgy is that..

I, too, am a bit skeptical that..

  1. Your attempting to delete an 'anti-virus' from a completely new laptop/PC
  2. The 'anti-virus' cannot be removed for some unknown reason
  3. Your immediately going towards a CMD-prompt solution to resolve the issue
  4. It's even an anti-virus in the first place

But you know, don't want to seem like I see you as a stereotypical script kiddie trying to liberate his laptop from the evil IT guys..

Well if two anti viruses are installed and running at the same time strange things can happen ;-)

Yet malware infected warez could have the same effect.

@Rayvn What is the programs name you downloaded?
