Make a BartPE boot disc. Put an addon for an antivirus program and an antispyware program in it too. Boot the computer up from that disc, and run bot the antivirus and the antispyware program and get rid of any problems. Also, if you want/need to, back up your data with it to an external drive.

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!

I bought the antivirusxp 2008 and it keeps asking me to buy it. I haven't being able to do nothing with my computer.


AntivirusXP 2008 sometimes called Antivirus XP 2008, is a rogue anti-spyware program designed by hackers to take your money in return for a useless program. We have noticed that the creators of rogue anti-spyware programs such as AntivirusXP 2008 and Antivirus 2008 are using the year ?2008″ in the name of their deceiving programs. As if we did not know what year this is. We have found that many of the programs that end with ?2008″ in the name just like AntivirusXP 2008, may be related to one another in that they perform the same malicious actions.
AntivirusXP 2008 is very dangerous to have installed on your computer. AntivirusXP 2008 may install other files or programs that pose a serious threat to the security of your system. AntivirusXP 2008 may ultimately allow your personal information to be sent to a remote user who has access to your system through a security hole. AntivirusXP 2008 may come from a Trojan such as Zlob or even the Antivirusxp2008.com website which promotes the AntivirusXP 2008 rogue anti-spyware program.

It is a virus or spyware try running a antivirus or antispyware prog if that doesn't help you will have a choice live with it(easy, but annoying), take it in (easy,but expensive), or save all your important files and reload everything (little more difficult, but cheap). Hope that helps you out. Either way you do it make sure to always have antivirus and antispyware running, you can get good ones for free. here are some links.

Ordered Antivirius 2008 over the internet but hasn't registered on my computer. it also charged me more than what it costed. i need help getting that Antivirus on my computer.


What is the brand of your Antivirus 2008? Is it Norton? Have you received an e-mail from the company? Will they send you a disk or you downloaded the software? And then, if it was downloaded, when you tried to execute it, did you get an error message?
