MedicCop Removal

How to remove MedicCop:

Download and install SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Both security programs come with free versions.

I recommend that you run multiple passes of SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

It’s important that you keep your security programs up to date. I highly recommend downloading the WOT (Web of Trust) add-on for IE and/or Firefox. The WOT add-on warns you about risky sites before you click.
