WinAntivirus Pro 2007

  1. Hi,
    I have WinAntivirus Pro 2007 installed on my computer. Is this a rogue antivirus programme? I have not turned my computer on for a week and when I did it came up with the initial Antivirus screen and then froze my computer. This happened about 6 times until eventually it worked. Should I be removing this programme immediately, or is the problem something else?

    Thanks for any assistance
    Tamara

    Hi, welcome to TechSpot.

    Yes, WinAntiVirus is a rogue program and should be removed immediately. I recommend the free AVG or Avast antivirus programs instead (but not both, as that can cause problems).

    If you have any trouble removing it, please post questions in this thread.

    Regards :)

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    As has already been said, Winantivirus is a rogue programme. The chances are, your system will also be infected with other nasties as well.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
