Default Anti-virus 2008/2009 Removal

It seems that the scareware program Antivirus 2008 and version 2009 are really becoming a pain. This program sends pop-ups saying that your computer is infected with viruses and to download their program to remove them...It is an infection of the worst kind as they purposely block websites that can remove or help in the removal of this infection such as winpatrol, pcpitstop and now malwarebytes.

Right now the simplest and easiest way to remove this infection is done by the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.30 program. Unfortunately as already mentioned once infected the website for downloading becomes blocked from access. The go around for this is to download the program from a third party vender.

Here is one that will allow the download from an infected computer.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and reviews - CNET

This is a paid for program but the free trial is a full version and will remove the infection
