I have Antivirus Pro 2009 and its a fake, can't remove it...


Shut the computer down. Disconnect from the network/internet.
Restart, tap F8 until you get the safe mode menu, chose safe mode no network, uninstall, click start, click run, type regedit, click edit, click find, type antivirus, click next, see if what it found is antivirus pro or norton, if pro delete it hit F3 key to repeat the search and continue deleting the antivirus pro entries until there are NONE left.. if one or more of the entries pointed to a file name go delete that file, restart in normal mode, run Norton, remove any virus found, run Ad-Aware from lavasoft.com remove any critical objects and leave any negligible ones alone, now you should be able to plug back into the net and do ALL windows updates, and update norton and ad-aware.

Replacing Norton with anything else


Norton is a real pain, and can be a bigger pain to get rid of. First, go to filehippo.com and download CCleaner, and also download AVG, but save the AVG download to the desktop. After removing Norton you will be using AVG for your antivirus. Once you have the CCleaner installed, open the tools section on the left. This is an uninstaller, it works considerably better than the add/remove programs section of Windows. Remove anything that reads Norton. This is where it may get tricky, Norton has a couple of blocking programs built in that try to keep you from using another antivirus, or removing Norton. So, the uninstall may run the first try, or you may get a message to the effect of the updater is running. If you get this message, then you will need to open Norton, go into the settings, and turn off everything. Then try the uninstall again. Once you've uninstalled all Norton related programs, run the registry cleaner. Norton likes to leave a little blocker in the registry that prevents the install of other antiviruses. Noe that this is done, you're ready to install the AVG. NOTE at one point there will be a section that will install the AVG internet toolbar, uncheck this box, you don't need it, and once it's installed you can't remove it without removing and reinstalling AVG. Some finer points about AVG is very little maintenance,it updates automatically, will scan at a time preset by you, so as to not hinder your use at the time of the scan, it protects against spyware and adware along with the antivirus, and has real time internet security without using hardly any resources. I believe you will be happy with it. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

I've already purchased Norton antivirus 2008 with antispyware and loaded but my screen still blue and shows Warning spyware detected in computer & to install antivirus or spyware wich i did.


That blue screen sounds like a trick to me. Many viruses and spywares or the websites that distribute them make beleive that they are causing viruses then provide links to fake antivirus and spyware removal programs that actually make your system worst.

Use the Norton to purchased to do a full deep scan of your system. I also like to supplement my Norton by running the free scan at housecall.trendmicro.com when I suspect there might be a problem on my machine that Norton can't fix.

Hi,

You can use the Nortan removal tool available from the Symantec :

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

Download & remove the norton 2007.

This tool can be used to remove all versions of Norton.

First you should shut down all the services of Norton before trying to remove it.

Restart the system.

Now you are good to go.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
