i've been having problems with these fake programs who claim to clean out viruses from your computer but end up pestering you and giving you annoying messages about viruses present in the computer. The annoying part about it is that the virus i currently have (Antivirus XP 2008) cannot be removed with the Add/Remove programs.
This is really difficult to remove and i need advice on what to do to completely remove it since it keeps on installing itself and it has gotten to the point that it interrupts me internet browsing to tell me to buy the product because i have many viruses on my computer. :thumbsup:
Also, i would like to know if there are any SAFE virus removing programs out there that i can download for free.

HELP. :flowers:
i've been reading blogs and websites but the removal instructions are very complicated. i dont want to damage my computer ever more by making the wrong move while attempting to remove this virus!!!

please i need help! :trumpet:

Hello and welcome, i have deleted the duplicate post you made in the antivirus forum as you will be helped here.
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
