Can anyone help. I have the avg or av2009 antivirus virus on my windows vista PC. It has been removed once and has returned. When trying to access the internet it blocks me, prompting me to pay 42 dollars to download the antivirus protection. It won`t allow me to do anything. I am therefore unable to download any spyware. I have malware security protection and after doing short and a full scan nothing is picked up. Its driving me crazy. I don`t know where to go or how to manually remove a virus.
Thanks

Have you tried running your antimalware software from Safe Mode?

Run Malwarebytes anti-malware. Worked well for someone I know.

avg which is a reputable programm and has nothing to do with av2009, which as you have found out, is a rogue program.
