    PROBLEM:

    This is a fix for users that are getting constant pop ups and balloon texts from a program called " antivirus 2008 or 2009 "

    SOLUTION:

    To resolve this behavior, follow these steps:

    1. Download the program Malwarebytes anti-malware here .

    2. Now start the computer in safe mode, You can do this by restarting the computer and pressing F8 right during booting right before the WINDOWS XP logo begins to load.

    3. Now you are in safe mode, install the program we just downloaded.

    4. Now open the program and do a fast scan.

    5. When the scan finishes press " Show results " and click " Remove Selected " . After this It can ask to do another scan after a restart to make sure everything is deleted, click yes to do this !

    6. Restart your computer if it didnt already happen. You should now be rid of the ANTIVIRUS 2008 2009 program.

     

    CONCLUSION:
