Antivirus2008 Pro is a rogue program !!!

This will take more than just an uninstall to clean your machine of this rogue piece of software.

I strongly suggest you get expert advice on removal and cleanup.

Download Hijacktis to your desktop click here

Run the scan and post the log at MWR click here

You need to register and please be paitent the experts will get to you.

Do NOT tinker with the results of the HJT scan,you can/could render your computer unbootable.

Ive found a site that claims to have a removal tool and manual instructiuons for removal,however i cannot vouch for its authenticity and i stand by my post post above for the best procedure for safe and clean removal.

this fake antivirus program is based on earlier smitrem frauds, like Spyaxe.
If you follow this link click here download Antimalwarebytes ad follow all the instructions you'll have it removed in less than 15mins.
I've had to clean this one up one 10 occassions over the last 6 weeks from friends and family's computers.
Seems most of them had downloaded a video that when clicked on asked them to download a codec to be able to view the video. click the link ad BIGO you get this rather unpleasent program.

Malwarebytes Anti Malware and SuperAntiSpyware are the only two you need.
