Please see How to remove Windows Antivirus 2008.

When done, copy and paste the results of the MBAM log report in your next reply. Also let us know how your computer is running and if there are any more signs of infection or further problems.

Your MBAM log shows "No action taken". This usually occurs if you forget to click "Remove Selected" and instead just click "Save Logfile". Let's make sure you removed everything that MBAM detected. Please review these instructions (scroll down) and rescan. After performing a new scan, post the log results in your next reply.

Sorry for the mixup. Indeed the log I sent you was before the cleanup. At that time I did the cleaning printed the log but did not save it.On my print out I have on all detected items "quarantined and deleted successful. Here is the latest rescan confirming the cleaning having taken place. Once again thanks.

As quietman is a bit busy,I'll add this reply of his.

Now you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

and for those who just want a "simple" solution to the problem of "antivirus 2008"you can visit the microsoft downloads page and run the "remove malicious software" program. It will scan your computer and remove it.
