So recently I had gotten the malware defense crap.
Had manually removed everything from regedit.
Ran malwarebytes' Anti-malware to remove anything else (however did not find any Malware Defense - prolly cause i removed most of them)

However, I keep trying to run and install AVG Antivirus.
It always gets so close but it comes up with the prompt screen to uninstall any existing antivirus or other conflicting programs.
Malware Defense keeps showing up. I go to Add/Remove Programs. Its not there. I went back to regedit, didnt find any of its companions.

I run malwarebytez a few times now.. 3 times today...
Everytime it finds some of the same infections.

Please help me get this removed and allow me to install AVG so I can fully sweep the computer!

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Please describe the issues you are experiencing with your computer.

regards, Elise
