Windows Activation Scam Message

Are you getting this message on your Windows based PC? If so we have the cure. You will need either another PC, access to safemode or a bootable Live CD/DVD like Linux Mint to perform this operation. The file producing this message can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Update with a file name Activate.exe, this folder/file needs to be deleted. If you are in safemode you will need to run task manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL) to stop the process Activate.exe before you can remove the folder it resides in. It seems no AV or Malware/Adware removal programs sees this as a infection so for now manually removing it is the only option.
