I signed up for the free sample anti Spyware hoping to remove ANTIVIRUS XP 2008 but in signing up for a discussion forum this is all I found.

Is there a tutorial/configure free way to remove this fake programme?

When done, copy and paste the results of the MBAM log report in your next reply. The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

My computer had been infected as well, and I followed the steps outlined in the link. The virus is still there. Is there anything else I can do? I'm considering a reformat at this point.

A reformat is one option.

You could also post a DSS log in the HijackThis forum and wait for a member of the HJT team to respond and help you remove the virus.

My daughter and my brother got the AntivirusXP2008 malware or virus or whatever it is and neither computer will bring up IE in order to download the fix that is offered here. I must be missing something. Is there something I need to do in order to get IE to load?

Hi,
If you can't access the internet on this PC then another option is to download the required files / programs on another computer and transfer tham to the infected PC via USB device or CD etc.. then follow the instructions given in aommaster's link above..

Fred.. :thumbsup:

Thank-you Fred. That is not something I thought of. I appreciate it.
