Manual removal is all about using your own knowledge to get rid of the malware and this method can be risky at times. If you don’t know how to find the infected files and correct registry entries, you won’t be able to remove the malware fully. On the other hand, If you leave traces of the malware on your computer, System Care Antivirus will return back in no time and start bugging you again.
For this reason, please follow manual removal steps at your own risk and don’t delete any files just because you think that they are infected.
1. Before you do anything else, you need to stop System Care Antivirus from running in your computer so that It can’t interfere with removal process. To terminate System Care Antivirus forcefully, you need to download Process Explorer and save it as “explorer.exe” on desktop.

%CommonAppData%\<random numbers and chars>\<random numbers and chars>
%CommonAppData%\<random numbers and chars>\<random numbers and chars>.exe
%CommonAppData%\<random numbers and chars>\<random numbers and chars>.ico
Please don’t delete any files from your computer If you feel that you’re deleting the wrong onces.
3. After deleting malicious files, edit the registry and remove malicious registry entries so that malware can’t launch itself at startup. To run registry editor, click on “Start—>Run” type, “regedit” and click OK button.
