How do I remove "vista internet security unregistered version" malware virus.

Most of the articles on the internet say to use malwarebytes malware remover. Is this safe or is it more malware?

To clean and to check if you system is clean do following:

Run malwarebytes in Safe Mode with Networking and update it before running a full system scan:

Then try HitManpro to make sure anything which might be left behind is clean:
32bit

64bit
http://dl.surfright.nl/HitmanPro35_x64.exe

If issue is not resolved by these tools try TDSSKiller:
