Uninstall for antivirusxp2008 will NOT work. How do I uninstall

\015 I am working on a dell inspiron 1501. This child's computer is full of virus' and and I need to uninstall the xp2008 antivirus program that is on it. However it will NOT let me uninstall. No matter what I've tried... it rejects the uninstall. This is worse than Norton. How do I get the darn uninstall program to work?\015

Answers :

You are right, it IS worse than Norton.
\015\012The reason you can't remove it is because you have been infected with a bit of malware posing as an antivirus program.
\015\012
\015\012There are a number of spyware/malware tools that can help with this, but the one that I've had the most luck with regarding this specific infector is Malwarebytes: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Download Link.
\015\012
\015\012If you unfamiliar with how to use Malwarebytes, or tools like it, follow the instructions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/malware-removal/remove-antivirus-xp-2008

\015\012Good luck!
For starters the program you are trying to remove is FAKE!! this is a malware program that doesn't function and tries to get you to "Buy" into it's features. however it will not give you anything in return. not only lulling the user into a false sense of security but often once downloaded also further infect the system
\015\012
\015\012I tend to deal with Malware & spyware using a piece of software called SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY which has consistantly been good and has more than just malware removal tools.
\015\012this can be downloaded here http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html
