Personal Anti-Virus Pop ups RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Personal Anti-Virus, has come through my files, when I have Norton total protection, have tried to remove program and it said that I need permission.  Did this come through Microsoft? It's pop ups are driving me crazy.  It also said that I was infected with a virus.  Norton, said I am not.  Any ideas, Thanks

  • Interesting if MSE can not stop this one.  Quick reference for you is http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-personal-antivirus
    Do you have the files on your machine that this says are the infection?
    This bothers me because I had to clean several client computers early this year with variants of the XP/VISTA/WIN -antivirus 2008/2009 (always the same infection, just different names).  This one looks a lot like another variant, and I am surprised MSE can not stop it.
