Antivermins-annoying pop-up, make it stop!

  BearHead 01:16 14 Feb 2007

Hi, i read on the internet that the Antivermins program can protect me from spyware but instead it turned out to be a 'spyware-like' application. All I got in the downloaded demo is a free scan and thats as far as it goes, but the real nightmare is that every 3 minutes a big huge baloon pops up telling me to buy the full software which takes up a fair ammount of screen space and doesn't allow me to see the screen properly, I have to close it every time it pops up. I tryed to uninstall Antivermins, removed it from the startup, tryed to shut down its procces in CTrL-Ant-Del menu, nothing helped, if anybody have any idea on how to fix this problem, pleeeease, help.....
