My email account is sending out bogus emails to people on my contact list. How do I make it stop?


your probably have malware on your system. if you open your email on another system, I doubt it will happen. On your main system that you use your email on run a virus program and a spyware program and see what it comes up with. Its probably as easy as that.

My email keeps sending out messages with a geosite attachment to all the people on my contacts list. I am not sending these emails.


That issue seems to be with virus infected on your system. You can try doing and online virus scan

1) Go to this link and download MalwareByte
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
(Install it and do an update for the antivirus first by clicking on the 'Update' tab, then do a scan either a quick scan or the other one)

2) Once done, download one more antivirus 'Super antispware'
www.superantispyware.com
(Perform and update for this too and do a scan)

Hope this works

Antivirxp08, is the name of virsus on my computer


The infection that you have are rogue antivirus programs that, when run, display false results as a tactic to scare you into purchasing the software. Older versions of XP Antivirus would create 9 entries in your Windows Registry that impersonate infections on your machine. In reality, though, these registry entries were harmless and had absolutely no effect on your computer. Instead, these entries were set so that XP AntiVirus can find them when scanning your computer and report them as infections. The newer of versions of the program , such as XP Antivirus 2008 and XP Antivirus 2009, instead just display false results when scanning your computer that state infections were found. In order to remove these fake infections, though, you would first need to purchase the software as the trial does not allow you to remove them. To get rid of the infections you can goto:

Windows xp virus problem-windows will not boot up


XP Antivirus 2008 is one of the latest counterfeit antispyware that devastates the wolrd wide web. XP Antivirus 2008 usually come up after you installed a video codec that come with Trojan, malware and virus. XP Antivirus 2008 normally generates fake and misleading system popup error messages so end-users will be tricked into purchase XP Antivirus 2008.

This is one of the warnings from the net about this program.

a system restore with disks or a full reinstall may be in your future.... reboot and tap f8 and then boot to safe mode.... does that work ?

OH NO!! I got infected with Norton Antivirus 2009!


Well, one thing.
This virus is more of something to play with your head, more then it is destructive.
What is is trying to get you to do, is believe that you are infected with something really bad, and they found it, but if you buy the full version of their program, it will fix it. Problem is, they don't have a product, they just want your credit card and bank information. (It's an ID theft scam)

Here's a couple of links that will tell you how to remove it.

Trend Micro Antivirus/Vista Antivirus 2008


Hello there.

Unfortunately you have been infected, by the software called "Vista Antivirus 2008". What this software does is infect you, then prompt you to pay to remove the infection that it installed. So it is a scam.

What i would recommend is use the uninstall instructions from here http://www.windowsvistaplace.com/xp-antivirus-2008-removal-instructions-xp-antivirus-2008/spyware-removal

This will remove the infection (and others) from your system.

Once you have completed the steps, be sure to try an online scanner such as housecall here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
This will not conflict with your already-installed Trend Micro software, it mearly runs through your web browser.

On that note, Internet Explorer is not very safe for browsing the Internet with, i would recommend either Firefox or Opera for a safer/better browsing experience.

Hope this helps.

Hi
Antivirus 2008 is an adware program - a form of virus. You should be able to get rid of it using a good antispyware program or something like norton antivirus. If you do not have a program installed I suggest you try using spyware doctor:
http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/download/

That will help remove antivirus 2008. I also suggest you install an antivirus program if you do not already have one. I good free option is AVG antivirus:
http://free.avg.com/

Together these programs should help solve your problem and prevent further virus infection.

Hope this helps, good luck!

Pop ups, infections, viruses ,worms


If you have Vista, try running Windows Defender within Vista. If that does not work, Spysweeper will get it.
