http://www.spywareremove.com/removeAntivirus2009.html So the other day I am on the computer, not paying attention to a antivirus pop up, I click yes without thinking just to get it off my screen and its anything but an antivirus. I knew something was wrong when it kept telling me how infected my computer was, I am the only person that uses this computer and I don't visit strange site or open unknown email. The antivirus 2009 trying to scare me into buying the software and I hate to be threatened even by a software program. I spent my whole off day trying to get it off my computer. You can't just go to the hard drive and delete it. If I was rich I would have just threw this laptop against the well and got another one. I ended up doing a system restore (Laptops for dummies walks you through it) unfortunately that was after I purchased a spyware that didn't remove the antivirus 2009 But its gone so I am cool with losing 30 dollars and 8 hrs because I know it could've been a lot worse. Called Dell support they wanted to charge me 150 bucks to get it off. The dell guy was nice enough but I was very close to hanging up on him. Dude I know the shi* not free just tell me the price and skip the spill but I know he is only doing his job and its not dell guys fault I was stupid enough to put this on my computer. Luckily I never click yes to download. But now my computer feels unclean. Thank you Lap Tap for Dummies and BAM BAM for your assistance. I am off to go change some of my passwords, and I will be replacing the credit card I used to buy the legit spyware since the fake spyware was on my computer at the time
When I did a Trend Mirco PC Check it found this Cryp_fakeAV - Those MF not only are they bastards but they think they are cute.
On a happier note I plan to do a review binge very soon.
