Live OneCare missed "Personal Anti Virus" - Spyware RRS feed

  • Question

  • Live OneCare missed "Personal Anti Virus" spyware which installed and was giving bogus trojan horse attacks.  I ran the scan after it appeared and it still did not recognize it as a problem.

    I was able to remove it using information I found on the Internet below, but

    =====  Problem ======

    How do I remove "Personal Antivirus" software?

    i accidentally down loaded "Personal Antivirus" and and now it pops up every time i turn on my computer. It also causes these pop ups that say my computer has been infected with trojans (such as: Trojan.Win32.Agent) and other viruses. It also makes it was i can not go to certain web sites. I have norton antivirus and i want to remove "person antivirus" but when i try to uninstall it, nothing happens.

    Personal Antivirus is a rogue (fake) anti-malware application.

    ===========  Resolution  ==============
    click start
    go to all programs
    then find the thing that says "PAV"
    and then click uninstall

    if it doesn't work
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Uninstall\PAV\Uninstall.lnk
    copy the link above to ur toolbar
    then press enter
    and then when the downloading thing appears click save

    Wait for it to download
    then open tht file
    And wait....
    It has to say "Personal Anti Virus was succesfully uninstalled" or anything tht says the PAV was succesfully uninstalled
    If it didn't say it was succesfully uninstalled
    repeat it again and again

    And there u have it^^

    I got affected by it too
    my sis doesn't know wat to do just like me
    But when I found tht thing
    it actually worked^^

    Good luck~
