off topic - vista antivirus 2008 warning RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • While online this message pops up that looks like the real thing and advises that viriuses have infected my computer. My computer has been running slower the past two days so I thought it was true. For $49.00 I can download anti virus software. I bought it and got nothing. What can I do?

  • I suggest immediately disputing the charge with your credit card company. Vista Antivirus 2008 is malware. If you are using Windows Live One Care please contact support for help with removal.
