Removal of antivirus xp 2008 virus

I downloaded the spyware removal software you suggested. Cked, but could not find the two files listed.( I assume they are gone) Could not find the C windows, or C program files, either.But the spyware program is still there, messing up my computer. Tried to find Gpedit, error message says the file isn't there.So I cannot get to user configuration, etc. Now what?

My next suggestion would be to use the system restore feature... go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore.
Follow the prompts to roll your system back to a date BEFORE you started getting this error and the issues began. If you are pretty sure when it began, go a few days before then, if not make a best guess, and go 2-3 weeks before that.
You will not lose any files you created, or any programs you installed, but it will clear any programs and viruses that were installed without user interaction.
Let me know if this takes care of your problem... Thanks!

I use xp.. i download a file in internet after that ,everytime i start the computer theres always a virus(i have avira) but cant remove it..


Keep updating avira always and install spyware terminator to check is it spyware or not because avira free version only for virus but there is something like spyware, adaware, malware etc. Just try spyware terminator, update avira and if possible install Comodo firewall and block the unknown applications connecting to internet.

Try cleaning the unnecessary files using ATF cleaner (Simple and good) link below.

Please remove Antivirus 2009 As I have McAfee security thru Comcast for free !


Antivirus 2009 is a virus and the fastest way to remove it would be to format the system over. However, if your lucky enough to have it in your ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS list, then remove it before it really gets messy. I just finished trying to clean this one and ended up reformatting the system. Now, if you need to do that, and your a bit technically incline, backup your profile located under C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\%accountname%

In the pictured example, OWNER is the primary account. Copy this to an external as this holds all your settings and documents and pictures provided you saved everything as a default to MY DOCUMENTS.

McAfee can't remove this virus.

How can I get rid of CA parental control? I never set it up!


AntiSpyware 2008 is a rogue anti-spyware program from the developers as Antivirus 2009. This program is advertised through misleading and deceptive web sites that pretend to be malware scanners that find infections on your computer They do this to scare you into thinking your infected, even though a web site can't possibly know this, in the hopes that you will download and install the AntiSpyware 2008 program. If you decide to install it, the program will scan your computer and come back with a list of security risks found on your computer that you cannot remove unless you first purchase a license of the software. It is important to remember that these people are preying on your fear and for the most part you do not have the infection they say you do.

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.
