About three days ago I received the Antivirus Pro 2009 pop up bubble on my task bar. Things have gone downhill from there. Luckily, I found this forum fairly early on, which has been a great help. I obviously didn't "purchase" the license, but my browser has been redirected from just about any website that could help (although viewing cached sites from google was a workaround). I've spent the last couple of nights trying to complete the 8-step virus removal instructions; but had a LOT of difficulty downloading, installing, updating and running both MBAM and SAS. I've had a lot of the same issues I've seen on other posts and ended up having to run the "FIXIT" EXE to break the log jam. I'm just now to the point where I've been able to run updates to MBAM and SAS and get them working. I'm about ready to finish up my first run through of the 8 steps (hopefully, within the next couple of hours). As I've said, this site has been extremely helpful, Is there anyone available to take a look at the logs when I can post them? I'm pretty much a novice at all of this and I don't think I'll be able to decipher the HJT report. Although I haven't seen the Antivirus Pro 2009 pop up in a couple of days, I desperately want to make sure I get rid of this whole thing because the browser redirect seems to reinstall itself after I reboot. Thanks in advance for any help!
