Before downloading and running GridinSoft Trojan Killer for removal of Windows Armour Master virus several additional preparatory steps need to be done.

Important! Depending on the Operating System of your computer, %UserProfile% stands for C:\Documents and Settings\[Current User] for Windows XP and C:\Users\[Current User] for Windows Vista/7.
In other words, the folder that should be opened is as follows, depending on the operating system:
%SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows XP
