download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to get rid of antivirus 2009

This thing popped up a couple days ago threatening that I was "infected", PC security was at critical risk, someone was trying to steal my passwords and all kinds of nasty stuff. It was all BOGUS. When I tried to remove the phantom threats it said were there, they wanted me to buy the program! Since my AVG said everything was fine I was skeptical but still worried. Not being all that computer savvy, my wife contacted a friend who is. She led me to this site. By downloading the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware suggested here and following the instructions, it vanished! Great site! Thank you for being here and I hope this helps someone else. Doug

Now yesterday I could not get on the internet. Tried Malwareebytes update and would not work. Ran the scan but it showed nothing nor did the AVG scan. I have the same logo calling itself Windows appearing at times. It has Windows colors but is a shield type logo. the icon is here now saying 4 new updates are available. Whe I click on it, ye olde shield appears. I don't think it's legit but not sure.?????
Had the computer turned off all night and this morning Internet Explorer worked.

Have you checked with Windows Updates to see if you are up to date? Tho I do agree that doesn't appear to be the windows logo.
Run another scan tool .. Run As Administrator and from safe mode and see what that brings back.
How to start Windows in Safe Mode

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home Users
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSpyware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
  • Under "Configuration and Preferences", click the Preferences button.
  • Click the Scanning Control tab.
  • Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen.
  • Back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan.
  • Click "Next" to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes".
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
