    How does fake antivirus corrupt file

    My brother has accidentally installed Home Antivirus 2010 in my computer. After a sometime I found that it is a fake antivirus. So I had tried many things to remove it from the computer. First of all I had disabled some services from the msconfig box. But I think that there are more file in the computer and the registry entries are also corrupted. Can you show me the way that this antivirus can put file where.
