Am I infected with System Doctor 2014 virus?

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

    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.

    Cheers!
