Question about F-Secure Anti-virus Client Security (FSACS001)

2 Answers

I bought Windows AntiVirus 2008 on-line. When I run it, it says there are nine Trojan viruses. When I click fix the problem, it says to re-boot and run scan again. I have done this ten times. It tells me the same thing again and again. It does not remove the virus. What is the problem?

Antivirus 2008 is a rogue program which can corrupt your PC. It will not delete any trojan virus but rather increase there value. Get some antivirus program on system. You can use McAfee or Trend Micro. They can easily remove all rogue prgrams.

Antivirus 2008 is a malicious rogue program that prompts you to buy their product. It also goes by Antivirus XP 2008 and Antivirus 2009. Since you have already bought it I am not sure how to get your money back. But, this is a fixable problem for your computer. Go to http://www.malwarebytes.org/rogueremover.php, download this tool and it will remove the program completely. Follow all instructions that are prompted and complete removal should be the result. Since it is a rogue program, simply uninstalling will not work. As soon as you reboot, all symptoms will return.

I am an IT Professional that has done this three times in my work this year. A Google search of Antivirus 2008 will reveal countless other people who have had the same thing. I suggest monitoring your bank account/credit card or whatever you used to pay to make sure other unidentified charges are added as other people have had this problem too. I would also suggest downloading an Antivirus such as AVG Free after you remove the rogue program.

Trojan virus promblem after open *** webside


Follow the given instructions to remove Trojan Virus from your PC.
1. Launch an antivirus program that you should have installed on your computer, such as Symantec's Norton or McAfee. Wait for the program's window to appear, then go to "Disk View." Highlight your computer, then select "Scan/Repair" so that the antivirus can detect the Trojan and trash it.
2. Exit the antivirus program on your Mac. Restart your computer again to ensure that the Trojan has been deleted. Empty the trash can on your computer once it is back up and running.
3. Disable the System Restore feature if you're a Windows user. Go to "Start" at the bottom of your screen, then right-click the "My Computer" icon to go to "Properties." Check "Turn off System Restore" under the System Restore tab in the "Properties" window, then select "Apply." Confirm that you want to disable System Restore by clicking "Yes" and "OK."
4. Update your virus definitions in your antivirus program. Open the program, or go to the website, to download the latest definitions so that you can receive the most recent alerts and keep your computer protected.
5. Scan your files to detect the Trojan file. Follow the instructions in your antivirus program to delete any suspicious files. You may want to write down the path and file name of the Trojan, which is usually found in the "C:\" hard drive. Then, edit your computer's backup registry by choosing "Start," then "Run." Type "regedit" in the window that appears and click "OK."
6. Search for the registry entry from which the Trojan derived, which may begin with "HKEY" followed by the file path. Delete the registry entry to ensure that the Trojan is removed. Exit the registry entry, and restart your computer so that the changes can take effect.

For you to remove Virus from your Laptop, you must have an Antivirus software running on your laptop. I will recommend Avira Antivirus, its know to remove most viruses. Download the free version, install it on your laptop and run a virus scan on your system with it. This will remove the virus from your system.

Got a trojan


You will have to run a full Virus Scan in safe mode with an Anti Virus program with up to date Virus Definitions.
Tap the F8 key on boot to get to the boot option screen that will allow you to select "Safe Mode", then select your operating system, then click yes on the pop up. Once in safe mode locate your Anti Virus program in your program folder and run the full/complete scan and that should fix you up.

Windows xp virus problem-windows will not boot up


XP Antivirus 2008 is one of the latest counterfeit antispyware that devastates the wolrd wide web. XP Antivirus 2008 usually come up after you installed a video codec that come with Trojan, malware and virus. XP Antivirus 2008 normally generates fake and misleading system popup error messages so end-users will be tricked into purchase XP Antivirus 2008.

This is one of the warnings from the net about this program.

a system restore with disks or a full reinstall may be in your future.... reboot and tap f8 and then boot to safe mode.... does that work ?
