    before one month this bloody virus infected my pc but a new version
    (antivirus 2009 xp)

    it is great security...

    SPYDOCTOR is popular and will do a free scan but will charge you to remove
    the virus. I had the problem for two weeks. I've read Norton doesn't work and
    people are wasting money on other similar products which don't do the job.
    Sometimes it's best to look closer to home i.e Microsoft. Try
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Entry.aspx?Name=Program:Win32/Antivirus2008
    for background info and then click on the link for the download options. I
    couldn't get Windows defender to install but I tried the WINDOWS MALICIOUS
    SOFTWARE REMOVAL TOOL and 'touch-wood' it seems to have helped. I still have
    the annoying message on the screensaver but the annoying pop-up has stopped.
    Let me know if it helps.

    Richard, thank you very much for that link for Malwarebytes.
    That is a ripper!
    An example: I was out doing a job today in XP
    In Safe Mode:
    Spybot Search & Destroy: 300 odd, assorted things, could not delete 8
    AVG(customers choice): Heaps in that DOS interface it uses now in SM with
    AVG 8.0
    THEN Malwarebytes: 211 Trojans, Adware, etc (and it ran after Spybot S & D
    and AVG)

    It's good gear.
    Once again, thanks.

    It is SPAM
    They charge either $1.00 or .50c a minute, depending on how good they are.
    Can't you surf the web to another page, lol.

    You must be a Pommie, drinking pints!
    Nah, you drink plonk.
    Cheap and nasty.
    And once again, you are wrong; it is spam.

    Seing as I use the web interface, you can reply here as much as you like.
    I can't be bothered coming back to here, and I don't get notifications of
    replies

    Read how to use the program.
    At the end of the scan, it gives you the option to remove them, lol.
    It is very good.
    Try reading it.

    After more thought, I probably should have known about that
    program since it's been mentioned here and in the other vista groups
    so often.
    I probably was too busy trying to find someone
    to be rude to to notice.

    So? Does this help? Or is it again a message with the subject: "Gee, am I
    good!"

  13. I found it out of desperation while trying to clean up the antivirus 2008 XP
    problem. I now use it as part of my standard arsenal.

  14. Richard you said you used a FREE version but when I went to site it showed a
    one time fee of $24.95. It had a Rohue free version is this what you used.
    I keep getting
    a pop up about 2009 antivirus. Will this remove this 2009 virus popup also?

    I don't know where you went but Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org) is free.
    Yes, there is a commercial version but you don't need to buy MBAM to use
    it.

    As for getting rid of XP Antivirus 2009:

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/malware-removal/uninstall-antivirus-2009

    These may work for you and all may be well. However, in many cases the
    computer will also be infected with Zlob and/or Vundo trojans and protected
    by a rootkit. These machines are extremely difficult to clean.

    If your machine is one of these cases, either get guided help at one of the
    specialty forums below OR back up your data and do a clean install of
    Windows. It is your choice. If you are unsure how to back up your data or
    how to do a clean install, you can take your machine to a local computer
    professional. I don't recommend using BigComputerStore/GeekSquad types of
    places.

  18. Those are both good sites.

    You have a problem, "JBosco". A big problem.

  19. On the contrary, these are both perfectly legitimate and very helpful
    sites, and have been hignly recommended by many knowledgeable
    technicians for quite some time now.

    The site you recommend, on the other hand, looks rather suspicious, at
    first glance.

    This anti Virus may be good but most of the times I found many anti
    virus defected. But now I explore about 'Search And Destroy - Top
    Anti-Spyware Software 2008' (http://www.search-and-destroy.com) and I
    received excellent option which defend your computer from viruses
