Use a real antivirus to remove the fake one. Either power down and mount your drive on a healthy machine that can run an antivirus scan on that drive, or just install AVG Free Edition off their site or pick one from Sourceforge directories, or perhaps VersionTracker; and let it duke it out with the curiously unbranded 'Antivirus 2009'

See, you did need a security program running.

Make sure you have updated your antivirus program. If your current antivirus is unable to remove the virus, try another antivirus. There are lots of free antivirus program out there. If nothing works, determine what type of virus you are detecting and search for its removal from the internet.

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.

Cant load a map because Google has detected unregistered Antivirus 2009 copy on your computer. Google


It has been my experience that messages like these are really spyware programs the redirect you to their websites to purchase their junk. I would recommend running through you program listings (Add/Remove Software)and removing anything you don't absolutely need or don't know of. Google maps is a javascript application, so anything loading a javascript library that isn't from Sun Microsystems is probably suspect. Look for anything with java or jscript in the name, or, anything that doesnt have a description. Most are toolbar apps or search engines. Your Antivirus might pick it up as spyware and might not. So a thorough spyware check is heavily recommended.

I downloaded the program Antivirus 2009 Professional but i cannot access it or find a way to make sure it is installed


Antivirus 2009 is a hoax. It a virus/spyware intended only to harm your computer. To get it off is way hard. Check my website.

I see these every day, note: also fixes AV 2008 and many others.

This Malware is known as "Rogue anti-virus" software.

This program will remove it: http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5360&file=10&evp=2e0d43eb67e1e71c0b31e62c003599c0
the website that has it also has a really good antispyware program called malwarebytes

www.malwarebytes.org

once you run a full scan in this program run this program:
http://www.superantispyware.com/downloadfile.html?productid=SUPERANTISPYWAREFREE
it's another free antispyware. these are both professional grade removal software for free. I remove this stuff about 3 times a day. It seems this outbreak is the largest I've ever seen.

If you want a good protection suite that will keep it out buy a copy of NOD32 (www.nod32-av.com) another you may not have heard of, it will block this and many others before it even gets on your computer.
