One of the first things you can try is a program called Vundofix. (http://vundofix.atribune.org/). But in my experience it only removes about 60% of cases. Depending on your expertise, your comfort level with command line and how important your data on your computer is. You have a couple of options:
1. You could reformat your computer (This has the down side of removing all of your data and programs but is much faster and easier than the other fixes)
2. You could (with guidance ie.me) try to remove it yourself (This has the down side of being time consuming but will save all of your information and will have the satisfaction of a job well done)
3. Take it in to a professional (Virtuemonde is one of the top 3 infections I see everyday in my line of work)

Uninstall for antivirusxp2008 will NOT work. How do I uninstall


For starters the program you are trying to remove is FAKE!! this is a malware program that doesn't function and tries to get you to "Buy" into it's features. however it will not give you anything in return. not only lulling the user into a false sense of security but often once downloaded also further infect the system

I tend to deal with Malware & spyware using a piece of software called SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY which has consistantly been good and has more than just malware removal tools.
this can be downloaded here http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html


for an in-depth specific "how to remove" guide see here

MSCONFIG allows you to stop programs from starting up when you boot up your computer to windows. This is good cause it will allow your computer to run quicker and more efficient cause less memory will be used. Virus protection is important cause it protects your files and Operating System from corrupting on you due to infections from spyware, malware, trojans, viruses, etc. A good free one if you don't have Mcafee or Norton is AVG and its free on the internet from: free.avg.com

Everybody has different opinions on what anti-virus program is good so decide for yourself which way you want to go. Hope this helps.

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.

It sounds like you've aquired a pretty nasty virus. It sounds similar to the Virtumonde Infection which can be VERY hard to fully remove from your system. If so, I can tell you that using your System Restore will not do you any good. While many of todays virus' are in the process of infecting the computer, they also infect the Restore Points on your computer as well. So IF you use System Restore to try to get rid of a problem, you're really just reinfecting it.

First thing I'd do is go to the url's shown below, read about the Virtumonde infection and download the "VundoFix 6.5.10" utility. Once you have the recommended utilities, run them and follow directions closely.
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/VundoFix.shtml
http://www.windowvistarepair.com/articles/Virtumonde_Removal_Tool.html
You might also go to the below url and download Spyware Doctor.
http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/?ref=afl_onenetwork&ClickID=cn4qs4faeze7fq7aazaxia7qakniankslean
Hopefully that will resolve your problem. If it doesn't, I'd suggest doing the following.

Run a couple online antivirus/walware checks, then, download and install a NEW trial or free copy of a good antivirus program such as Avast, AVG, ESET Nod32. Update all definitions, then run a complete check on the system again. The antivirus/malware checks should find a get rid of all ACTIVE infections. With the active malware removed, you should be able to use your computer the continue get rid of any remaining traces of the infections. Many Active infections (infectins that are currently in memory) may not be able to be removed while active, so it might require a reboot at which time the anti malware program should start up and remove the infection during the boot precess, before Windows starts up. If you're still having problems after the OS loads, that means there's a hidden file that is being loaded and reinfecting the computer when the OS is booting. If that's the case, repost your problem for additional suggested fixes.

VIRUS INFECTION , YOUR SYSTEM IS INFECTED


this is what sounds like a trojan or for of spyware, probably disguised as a screen saver. If you have no anti virus installed download this programme for free http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5#avg-anti-virus-free If you have no anti spyware programme download this for free. http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Edition/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5 on the laptop press Ctrl, Alt & delete or right click on task bar to get to the task manager and on the processes tab look for the scrensaver.exe or similair that is running, click on it and press end process. this should allow you to work with windows Install the programmes, then go to system restore tab in my computer>right click>properties>system restore tab and click 'turn off system restore'(this will stop any virus or spyware backups reinstalling). Run both the programmes and remove any spyware or virus. If it still appears you may have to uninstall it safe mode, which is press F8 key on start up and select 'start windows in safe mode' and run the antivirus and spyware programmes again.
