Hey Guys,

2014 is still to come but some virus named System Doctor 2014 is already on the roll. I guess I m hit with it. My PC appears to have come down with something nasty. It has hijacked “Microsoft Security Essentials” and claims that the Trojan was on the computer and I need to download “Windows Defender Online” in order to remove it from PC completely. I searched this thing over Internet and found it as legitimate software. But when I downloaded it, “System Doctor 2014” installed in my PC automatically and it displaying false instanced of malicious viruses such as ‘blaster worm’. I tried to open some .exe file but it refuses to open claiming that the file is malicious and its execution have been stopped. This program also prompts to “activate” it in order to cure the PC. I ran some of the renowned antivirus programs like ‘Malwarebytes’, ‘TDSSKiller’ but none of them detected anything. The svchost.exe process is also launching repeatedly, simply no clue what to do….

Please help me to resolve this issue, so that I can return to my PC with working and uninfected state. I would appreciate any help.

Thank you

System Doctor is making the rounds these days, more than 20 PCs fix in just a few days. It's actually either the FBI virus or this crap these days. Most of the time these removal instructions should work:

However, I also noticed that some users got really nasty TDL rootkits that even TDSSKiller can't detect. The only thing that worked for me was the Rootkit remover from BitDefender:

So, if you can't remove the System Doctor malware, run the rootkit remover first.

Actually System Doctor 2014 is a rogue anti-spyware program which is really very difficult to remove from PC because it resists all its ways to elimination. If you run normal antivirus program say Avast, Norton or McAfee nothing will be detected because those antivirus program are built to eliminate only those threats and infections which are there in their database. Any tricky or self evolving rogue that changes its definition on a regular basis like System Doctor 2014 can't be detected by these antivirus programs. So, does it mean that this rogue can not be eliminated from the computer system?

Well, the answer of this question is not 'yes' because in order to remove System Doctor 2014 from the computer system you need special kind of security program i.e. antispyware's.
