Anti virus 2009

Hi I got tricked into downloading a part of anti virus 2009 and now it is just constant annoying pop ups and I can't get it off of my computer and my Kaspersky isn't really working good. What do you suggest I do to remove this anti virus???? i downloaded the anti spycheck on my computer--paid for it. I think i downloaded a virus instead of virus protection. I paid for it on line, but all it does is constantly pop up on my computer all day long. Can u. help me? i purchased the anti virus 2009 professional to try and clean up my laptop. however i haven't received a registration number nor an activation number.even though it says its activated, i cannot seem to get it to pop up when i click on it from my desktop. nothing happens.

This is known as a non intrusive advertisement trojan, and it's near impossible to get rid of. The reason is that when this invades your machine it places several inactive copies of itself throughout the computer. When you stop one, the others are basically notified, and one or two more will open and leave several more, but not all of them will open. After a couple of months the number is exponential. Most anti viruses won't find them because they are non intrusive, laying dormant, or are in files that aren't scanned on a regular basis, ie... picture files, screen savers, music, etc... The only sure way that I've found to get rid of them is to completely wipe the hard drive, reformat, and reinstall the operating system.

Tip

Learn the name of your anti-virus program


Its important to know the name of your anti-virus program, because on the web there are spyware pop ups that trick you to download their antivirus. I trust AVG, Avira, or Rising anti-virus programs. Avira is my favorite and I recommend you try that one.

Windows - Internet Defender is constantly warning me of the presence of viruses on my computer, but i already have another Anti-virus doing the job, and am tired of Internet defender giving me pop-ups...


Hi ryan_a_parke
Internet Defender is a virus as you can read here : http://www.spywareremove.com/removeInternetDefender.html
If you can't succeed to remove it with the instructions , try this :
Delete your antivirus , it is useless since it didn't identify Internet Defender) .
Go to http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ and download Microsoft's stuff . It's free but it will work , believe me .
Complete your pcs protection by downloading and installing free MalwareBytes : http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10896905.html
Best regards ,

Porn hub perhaps? my computer is destroyed by virus


It is not a virus. Or a tougher virus could be. Try to download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to check your system for possible malware. Install it, then update it and check your PC. However, you may need to disable your existing antivirus first.

If this would not help (if your existing tougher virus or malware will disable it from running), try Avast Antivirus Home edition. It is free but reliable. One good thing here is because it can scan your system AT BOOT TIME that is why your malwares and viruses have no way to disable it from running.

Regards!
