First of all, I am not sure if I am posting in the right place, so I am sorry if I didn't..

I just found out that my Father In Law just paid $100.00 for this POS fake antivirus program and I just got done reading him the riot act about downloading and paying for software without checking with me (not that I am an expert but I can google with the best of them).:thumbsup:

I read the article about removing the product but my real question is,Is there anyway he can get his money back or should he just wave goodbye to it.

I plan on going and removing the virus this weekend and was hoping to help him get his money back if I could.

TYIA,
Fubar65

And I agian am sorry if not posted in right section.

You should call the credit card company immediately and dispute the charges.
