Need help with Paladin virus

I have this on one of my kids laptop and cannot get rid of it. When I download a virus scan it blocks it. If I go to a site that says something about it, it redirects it. I even bought a McAfee full protection kit and it blocks it. What do I do?

Sometimes, you can get around the virus/malware preventing scans, by renaming the executable of the scanner you're trying to use. Like, renaming mbam.exe to bacon.exe, or something like that.

Why do I suggest "bacon.exe" you ask? Because, bacon is just that awesome.

Bacon does make everything better. I will try that and then maybe have some bacon.

Or you can use a boot cd and use that to clean the virus off the drive.

Ultimate Boot cd (haha, just typo'ed that as the ultimate Botto cd...)
Ultimate boot cd for windows

If you can get to malwarebytes site, donwload and run malwarebytes. Maybe donwload it to another computer, burn the file to a cd and then install it on the bad computer that way.
