Here is what I did to get rid of the Fake Malaware notice
1.0 Removed the HD and used another PC to Scan this HD using Malaware bytes; it detected 1 error (red colored)
but apparently could not remove it
2.0 I put the HD back in the original Laptop & after re-boot - the FAKE notice was still present!!
3.0 I used SYSTEM RESTORE to a date before the virus infection and it got fixed
The suggested way should have worked though maybe the version is a new 1 so MWB did not pick it up.
I would suggest disabling restore now to remove any restore points that have the beastie in them. After reboot reenable restore and make a new point,
