Just don't do what it tells you to do, that's for damned sure. Whatever it wants you to download is a bastard.

I had this a while back. Turns out I had some other crap too that proceeded to attack my bios when I tried to get rid of it. I ended up just reinstalling windows, but try AVG or something.

is AVG free?


AVG and avast! are both free, I like avast! better but AVG will probably get rid of it too as this one is apparently pretty common.

I lol'd. McAfee is a joke. Get AVG free if you don't want to pay for anything, otherwise get Kaspersky, unless you can find it for free illegally.. just saying.

I've gotta say, pirating anti-virus software is a really bad idea to us paranoid netizens.

OK. I had this exactly a week ago. It ****ing sucks. I found a good free software. Try downloading Malwarebyte and run that ****. Then just delete the exe that look like av2009 etc. It should work.

Edit: Beat to it. but try it. should help.

It's a bad idea to anyone with sense since it has to connect to the companies servers to update itself, and letting pirated software connect to the companies server is usually a pretty bad idea.

malware.. avg antivirus trial version removes it and its free

go to grisoft.com to download it
another option is to go into the system registry and delete the reg keys and dll files related to it

I guess I sort of had the same thing about a month ago. It wouldn't restart Windows but every time I was on Google it took me to the Antivirus 2009 page and said I had infections that weren't real. I'm pretty sure I used the malwarebytes program and that got rid of it.
