I’m still using the old Windows XP and I think I have this program called AntiVirus 2008 but after visiting this site, I know that some times these programs might not be what they seem…is this a good or a bad program?? It’s saying I have a ton of infections and I need to get rid of them.
Windows XP is still a great and reliable operating system, you should never be ashamed to be using it!? I’m glad you were able to catch that AntiVirus 2008 is a bad program.? It is called rogue spyware and will tell you that you have many infections just to scare you into buying their illegitimate software.? Read ahead for removal instructions.
To remove this infection, we?ll use our trusty tool?Malwarebytes? Anti-Malware
Extra Note:If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately
A quick reboot and another follow up scan should be all you need.? I recommend “Google-ing” programs you download or see on your computer that you are not sure of; you never can be too sure in cyberworld.? My advice is always trust your gut and if you think it sounds fishy, it probably is; just make sure you back up your feelings with some hard evidence!
