download and install malwarebytes anti-malware, run the program and it should remove total vista security.

And also get Spybot Search and Destroy, and HijackThis!, and Google removal methods for it. You can also see if it shows up in your Programs and Features control panel.

oh wow it worked.. I love MalwareBytes :D
Thanks to both of you guys, and Zet, that link you provided helped a lot.

Got rid of it completely.
I guess you could close this now.

I don't think you would have gotten it from deviantart, so maybe someone else clicked on one of those fake virus scan popups.
