MS AntiSpyware 2009 Removal


Thanks you are solved my problem.Thanks for sharing.

I just use Your Uninstaller! 2008 to get rid of everything I dont want, it even scans for left behind files after the standard uninstall is finished. I like the program you mentioned though, because I dont deal with fake anti software at all, they seem like a real hassle to get rid of.

i used to deal with alot of fake antivirus, the only way i can see i would be able to remove it is from the registery (run->regedit) alot of new fake antivirus are now hiding there registry directory...i just used MalwareBytes and did a scan..picked up 16 vundo and seneka spyware as well as a fake anitremover called "virusremover2008"...the only know issue is this fake antivirus starts to completely take over the system though system32.. Once i got ride of the fake antivirus and spyware i had to recreate my own boot.ini file over, the system kept running into safemode... either way im was very impressed with MalwareBytes it did its job and i didnt have to go to the hassel of looking for the fake antivirus or spyware and remove it from the registery one by one


this is really annoying


Thanks for help.

I just ran a simple quick scan of my system to try it out, and it picked up 300+ infections that my other scanners weren't detecting, and the file assassin removed a malware exe that I couldn't delete myself. Definitely well worth the download.

Thanks very much for your very useful tip of getting rid of such fake rogue antispywares. My PC suddenly got infected with MS Antispyware and it was very irritating. I read your tip and installed Malwarebytes...scanned my PC with it...and that's it!! I got rid of that rogue antispyware.

Thanks anyway, I appreciate your sharing this on the net.
