am an XP user. Somehow a program called Personal Antivirus has gotten
stuck on my computer. I went to Programs in my C: drive and found it listed
as PAV. When I went to delete it, I was given a message saying, "Access
Denied." Now a box shows up in the lower right hand corner every five
minutes wanting me to click a button and buy a product. How can I get rid of
this? I did a Goggle Search and found multitude of ways listed, but can get
none to work. I am not computer savy, so need the easiest way to get rid of
this. Please help! Thank you

You should post on Am I Infected to get the expert help you need.

I have the same problem. Would you please elaborate on "Am I infected? How do you do this. Thanks. This is my first time posting so I ask your indulgence if I'm not doing this correctly.

vmsiva and dajomill

As frankp316 suggested you should go to "Am I Infected"? Read all the "Stickies" at the top of the forum and then post your problem there. It may take a while for one of the experts there to help you as there are many infected computers and very few volunteers.

But they will get to you.

and please remember to carefully read the stickies before posting

Good luck,

vmsiva has already had one topic moved to AII and is awaiting a response

I would appreciate if you would start your own topic in Am I Infected

You will be able to track it better and I don't have to hack this topic and lose some content while trying to edit it
