Just want to add my $0.02.
I have been battling this stupid 'anti-virus' for the last 2 1/2 days on Vista. I tried TrojanHunter, Norton Anti-Virus (standard), PCTools and Avast. I even tried the Malwarebytes software, following your methods carefully, but with no success. For the last two programs, they didn't even recognize that A.V. 2008 was even on my computer, after doing the "Thorough scan" on both versions. TrojanHunter did find one trojan, which it removed, but not av2008. Finally installed Norton 360. Success! Don't know whether or not it was combining all of the above programs, or just Norton on its own, but I can finally access things like normal again!!So if MBAM is not working, and you have the cash, might want to try it.
I do have one question, though. Now that the AV2008 is gone, am i safe to re-use my banking software again, or should i contact my bank and put a hold on my account stuff? I read somewheres that one of the reasons for this virus is to swipe passwords and credit card info.... Any advice out there?
