Hello, this is my very first post so bear with me. My computer was hit with Antivirus Live a few days ago. It wouldn't let me surf the web, install a REAL Anti-virus program that I bought or anything. Tons of pop ups saying my computer has been infected and so forth. Well, I clicked on the security center icon in the control panel. It of course took me to the antivirus live link where it gave me 3 option to purchase. A 3 month, a 6 month, or lifetime. Not knowing what to do I bought the 3 month. Well everything went back to normal until I looked it up on the internet and saw that it was very dangerous. I found this site and downloaded the mbam and ran it safe mode and the whole nine yards like it said. I then installed Kaspersky Anti-virus 2010 and now use Mozilla instead of IE 8. I ran Kaspersky and it detected that there used to be a trojan on there and deleted 2 adware. I uninstalled the Antivirus Live that I downloaded when I bought it as well. However, when I go back to my security center from the control panel, it says that virus protection is on and that 2 antivirus programs are running. So I guess my question is do I still have the Antivirus (virus) or not. Thanks!
