malwarebytes does not remove this, and cnet has it as a legit download. they even review it.
had to delete the program files (x86) advanced system protector folder to get rid of it.
malwarebytes didnt even find it much less get rid of it.

This is because it is a legitimate,albeit terrible,Antivirus.

The first method ofuninstalling should be this (Vista and Win7 example)

1. Click Start button on your taskbar and select Control Panel.

2. Under Programs category, click on Uninstall a Program option.

3. On the next page, select Advanced System Protector and click on Uninstall option.

4. Click the Yes button when prompted to uninstall the program.

5. Reboot

This will remove Advanced System Protector from your system.



If that wasn't enough ..
Re-install it, boot to Safe Mode, use Revo Unintaller Free.

Hello cyberpenpal -
You did not reply to if you have now installed a better Antivirus program, so I thought I might add a small note to help you. :)

It is really dangerous to go online without a decent antivirus, and a Firewall.
Without one, you are extremely likely to get infected. I can't tell you which one is the best because determining that is generally not feasible.
However, I can give you recommendations for programs that I have tested and that I trust.

All of the following are excellent, provided free (not free trials of) antiviruses - Be sure to only ever install one on your computer at any time.This can be added to with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free and SuperantiSpyware Free or in paid / active versions -

I hope this information helps you.

Thank You -
