AV 2009 Removal Procedure
I am posting this due to the complex removal of this Spyware/Virus.
You can not install antivirus program nor anti-spyware programs. It also disables Windows Updates and more.
Lately the new installation procedure of the AV 2009 has had me backed up in a corner and could not figure out how to rid of this pest.
Here is the procedure.
Goto another computer and download MalwareBytes
. Also download the the definition updates here
Disable System restore also. Now rename the installer and the definition updater to something like killerapp and killerupate. (If you do not it will not install). When you are installing it will freeze at the end. Just reboot the computer to safe mode. Run the definition update program. Goto the directory that Malwarebytes is install and rename the mbam.exe to imgoinggetya.exe (or some different name) Now run the newly rename program and run a quick scan. Reboot when asked and boot back to safe mode. Run a FULL scan now and reboot back to safe mode if asked. Run another full scan again.
There will be programs automatically run that you can get rid of using HiJackThis
Get the zip version due to you can not install HiJackThis.
Once you have run scans in safe mode to nothing is found then you can boot to full mode. You will then need to run a full scan with MalwareBytes again and also run a virus scan. (I used NOD32
It will take a while and be patient but this procedure works.
Hope this helps
