This uninvited program has installed itself on my computer. I cannot remove it unless I comply with its blackmail threats and pay for a licence. It takes up all my desktop screen and constantly runs scans and gives me warnings about 100s of "viruses" I suppose to have on my computer. I checked through PC Advisor past forums on the subject and ended up paying out 70€ for a full fusion of Spy Hunter 3 download. Spy Hunter detected 3 associated parasites and after a clean out says they are not there now. I have rebooted and its still there. I have gone into my control panel and tried removing it form the add/remove programs facility but it will not let me remove it. If anyone can offer any help I would be very gratefull. Tom
I had this 'uninvited program' on my system a few weeks back & after gong through various forums looking for solutions i ended up doing a factory restore as 1. i couldn't really comprehend the solutions i saw as i'm not that technically minded & 2. i couldn't perform a system restore which, i presume, was down to the Antivirus 2008 intrusion.
So, if all else fails,Tom the Tank, you may have to reset your computer to the factory settings.
It was a blessing in disguise in my case as my system is now running much quicker & smoother.
