AntiVirus Live has officially and tyrannically taken over my system.

Post by ElonsTDiddy on Sun Dec 13, 2009 5:21 pm

It didn't take much google searching to figure out that AntiVirus Live is a fraudulent antivirus protection software, now it's preventing everything from opening new downloaded files to checking my current running processes with ctrl+shift+esc. I tried downloading HijackThis and AVGFree but AntiVirus Live is telling me those files are corrupt and it's cancelling the application on its own. I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place, as step one for the "Alpha AntiVirus" removal tells to check my processes window.

It's also telling me BankerA and a handful of other attacks are inbound on my system, and AntiVirus Live is blocking every move I can make to get rid of it.
