I have ''Virus remover 2009'' firmly rooted in my computer! I have this annoying, bleeping red icon with a white cross and a pop-up that appears every 20(ish) seconds. It runs its own scans giving me a full screen page of the amount of viruses I have. It also trys to connect itself to the internet, so I keep off line until I need to send e-mails, the other annoying part of it is the number of ''alert'' pop-ups that appear

I run Kaspersky security. (updated every day) Since I detected the problem, I was advised to download Antimalwarebytes, which detected some problems and then successfully got rid of them. EXCEPT the one above!!! I have looked through your list of mal-ware and there is a similar one called ''antispyware pro 2009'' is this the same sort of virus? and how do I go about getting rid of it Please.

Thanks,

tandm

What is Virus Remover 2009
What is AntiSpyware Pro

Both are Rogue security software. Beware of rogue security software.

Please post the results of your MBAM scan for review.

To retrieve the MBAM scan log information, launch MBAB.
  • Click the Logs Tab at the top.
    • The log will be named by the date of scan in the following format:
      mbam-log-2009-01-12(13-35-16).txt <- your dates will be different from this example
      -- If you have previously used MBAM, there may be several logs showing in the list.
  • Click on the log name to highlight it.
  • Go to the bottom and click on Open.
  • The log should automatically open in notepad as a text file.
  • Go to Edit and choose Select all.
  • Go back to Edit and choose Copy or right-click on the highlighted text and choose copy from there.
  • Come back to this thread, click Add Reply, then right-click and choose Paste.
  • Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.

Welcome to BC karenv

ComboFix logs are not allowed to be posted outside the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum and then only when requested by a HJT Team member. The HJT Team members are all volunteers who contribute to helping members as time permits but currently there is a backup and you may have to wait for assistance. Referrals are made to the HJT forum if we cannot assist you in this forum.

However, if you have an issue or problem you would like to discuss, please start your own topic. Doing that will help to avoid the confusion that often occurs when trying to help two or more members at the same time in the same thread. Even if your problem is similar to the original poster's problem, the solution could be different based on the kind of hardware, software, system requirements, etc. you are using and the presence of other malware. Further, posting for assistance in someone else's topic is not considered proper forum etiquette.

Thanks for your cooperation.
The BC Staff
