I'm sure all of you have heard of AntiVirus 2009. It has badly infected my computer.


-Taken over my internet. Every other time I upload a webpage, a page pops up and says "This site may contain virus's, Download Antivirus now!", something along those lines. So to open up a webpage, sometimes i have to contantly refresh it until it somehow surpasses being blocked. When I click a link on Google, it direct links all the links to the fake microsoft site.

-All of my anti virus programs are blocked. I cannot open up Malwarebytes, superantispyware, anything. Only opened up CCleaner, but did nothing. The virus is blocking the virus scanners.

-System reboot does not work. I try to go back 3 days, and I click next for it to restart. It doesnt work. Just freezes.

-The only time I can really download something is if its a direct link to the download itself. If its a virus scanner, hopefully it pops up after its done downloading. Never really worked so far though. But only tried it once.

I really need help guys. This is an expensive computer... I dont wanna lose it. Has a lot of files, pictures, etc =[

I will post pictures later if needed

Please help! Its bugging the crap out of me!

Hello let's try these . I also deleted your duplicate post as we are working it here.

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.

If you cannot use the Internet,you will need access to another computer that has a connection.
From there save mbam-setup.exe to a flash,usb,jump drive or CD. Now transfer it to the infected machine, then install and run the program.
If you cannot transfer to or install on the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash drive or CD by double-clicking on mbam-setup.exe so it will install on the hard drive.

Manually Downloading Updates:
Manually download them from HERE and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
