The creators must have added something new to this "program" as, it now will not let the software run...

It is says "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware:" is infected cannot run...I have tried to launch it several times...

I know I have what is desribed...

AntiSpyware Pro 2009 is advertised through the use of Trojans that display fake security alerts and messages stating that your computer is infected. These alerts will also automatically install Antivirus Pro 2009 on to your computer.

As part of its installation process, Antivirus Pro 2009 will configure itself to start automatically when you logon to your computer. It will also create a variety of fake malware files on your computer that are completely harmless, but are installed so they are detected by AntivirusPro 2009 when it scans your computer. When Antivirus Pro 2009 starts it will automatically scan your computer and list variety of infections that cannot be removed unless you first purchase the program. Many of these infections are the fake files that the program installed, as described above, as well as legitimate Windows files that are being called infections. It gives these false results in order to scare you into purchasing the software.

While running, you will also find that your Internet Explorer has become hijacked. When browsing the web, Antivirus Pro 2009 will randomly display a screen stating that there has been insecure internet activity and that there is a threat of a virus attack. It then prompts you to either get protection or continue to the site. Regardless of the option you select, you will instead be brought to a web page where it tries to sell you the program. This is just another scare tactic and should be ignored.

This is all happening to me...the new pops they created says the exe file is infected...and the consent.exe file...

Can someone please help...I tried to run the DSS...I got the screens log texts...was unable to save them as my entire computer screen is black...

thank you
