Toshiba Laptop - Antivirus 2009

\015 An antivirus 2009 keeps popping up on my system. I originally have McAfee and my husband clicked to install Antivirus 2009, and now I can not remove it. It is not completely installed, but when I try to find it to uninstall it, it is not there, and when I actually locate the program and try to delete it, it says that I need permission in order to do so. What do I do?\015

Answers :

This is known as a non intrusive advertisement trojan, a virus that antivirus companies are now using. These viruses will not do any damage to your machine, but they are very annoying. They are almost impossible to get rid, and here's why. When the virus is activated it places several copies of itself throughout the system. These copies lie dormant, which makes them hard to find, in areas or files that are considered safe by your antivirus, and aren't checked on a regular basis. Then when you get rid of the active virus, one or two more, but not all, will open leaving several more behind. After a few months the number is exponential. There are two ways of making the pop ups stop, but only one to be completely rid of it. 1- buy the product, pay on a monthly basis, and spend entirely too much money for what you're getting, and then have them come back if you cancel or miss a payment. 2- the only sure fire way to get rid of them is to wipe the hard drive, reformat, and install a new operating system. If you do this you will be rid of it, but you cannot back up anything. The virus hides in everything from pictures, music, video, screen savers, to registry files. Anything could be infected and bring the virus into the new system. I realize that this isn't what you want to hear, I've tried everything here at my shop for customers with this problem, and unfortunately, this is the only sure solution.
