Hello and thanks

Post by kelvin on 20th January 2010, 7:42 am

Hello and thanks for the help of removing Antivirus Live. I thought I was on top of my game since I beat the previous version last year by logging onto the other user on the computer and installing an update virus protection. I did it again on another computer in the house 3 weeks ago where I just had to install updated virus protection. This one overwhelmed me and sent me to bed late, tired, and mad.

I read where there has been lawsuits filed but I would like to know if there is a possabillity of some sort or criminal filing since the actions that their action of installing malicious softwhere on computers to gain money or business is extortion.

Hello,

I guess it is possible. A lawsuit has been filed before against group of rouge anti-spyware commonly known as "Winfixer". But some rouge creators spread their malicious software behind proxies, so finding them in the first place might be an issue. You can contact a lawyer on this as he might be able to guide you better.
