Hi Guys : looking for some help I have been trying to remove 2008 antivirus that has taken over my browsers.
this is what i tried (read on anouther thread (Simon) suggested to anouther user to run ccleaner, then combo fix)

1) downloaded cccleaner, scanned

2) loaded super antispyware , scanned , but halfway through scan pc reboots , (uninstalled , reinstalled program no help)

3) was going to try to run combo fix, but i can not set up xp recovery mode ( due to no browser and no xp disk)

4) tried to set up mbam set up , downloaded from anourther pc , transfered to deskto but will not install.


I am stuck and do not know what to do, if anyone can help i would be greatful,
Ragweed

I ran into the same thing with mbam. I emailed it to myself using Thunderbird. And it would not install. I have AOL on my machine and internet links were not blocked in AOL even though it uses IE beneath it. I was able to get it to download that way and it worked.
