How to Remove TrustFighter | Trust Fighter Removal Guide

TrustFighter sports a very familiar face, but a different name. Trustfighter is a rogue security application that is in the long line of similar applications such as TrustSoldier (TrustSoldier removal guide) and the following others… SafeFighter (Safefighter Removal), TrustCop (TrustCop Removal Guide), SecureWarrior (SecureWarrior Removal), SecurityFighter (SecurityFighter Removal), SecuritySoldier (SecuritySoldier Removal) and it also has gone under other names. These are all scareware style software and will install through web exploits and trojans as well as making false claims about infected files on the disc and the claim that it will fix all of the problems if you purchase. Read on to find out how to remove TrustFighter

First off, TrustFighter creates a long list of files in c:Windows and c:WindowsSystem32 – these are harmless and are the basis for the scan that it conducts and then claims as evidence of malicious content on your machine.

Now, I would start by getting a copy of malwarebytes antimalware installed on the machine. You can find a link to download malwarebytes Antimalware on my virus removal toolkit page.

If you have difficulty installing or getting malwarebytes antimalware to update and run you may try the following tricks to allow it to be installed and run. 1) boot into safe mode. 2) rename the installer file from mbam.exe to something else and then attempt to rerun the installer. 3) Start disabling running processes via the task manager that may be related to TrustFighter. Make use of the list of files below to draw ideas for running processes that may need to be disabled:

If you are performing a manual removal of TrustFighter you should delete the following files and folders:

%progfiles%TrustFighter Software
%progfiles%TrustFighter SoftwareTrustFighter
%progfiles%TrustFighter SoftwareTrustFighterTrustFighter.exe
%progfiles%TrustFighter SoftwareTrustFighteruninstall.exe
%docs%All UsersDesktopTrustFighter.lnk
%docs%All UsersStart MenuProgramsTrustFighter
%docs%All UsersStart MenuProgramsTrustFighter1 TrustFighter.lnk
%docs%All UsersStart MenuProgramsTrustFighter2 Homepage.lnk
%docs%All UsersStart MenuProgramsTrustFighter3 Uninstall.lnk

You should note that many of the filenames listed above are created randomly. In other words there may not be files named exactly as above due to a random component in their file names. You should use the above information as a template to further your ability to remove trustfighter.

Even after a complete manual removal of Trustfighter, I would still install, update and run a tool such as malwarebytes antimalware to make certain that the system is clean.
