    Antivirus 2009 Pro

    I have a virus, it has installed "Antivirus Pro 2009" on my computer, in the tray an icon appears and whenever it opens itsself porn sites come with it. Whenever I try to visit anything other than google this comes up: Click Here

    I can only browse the internet in Firefox at the moment.
    I have AVG Free edition 8.5, but trouble is it can't seem to find it. It recently found a trojan called "pp10.exe" however, after removing that infection the antivirus program still seems to work. When AVG is running, the virus itsself does not appear, however the warning still comes up whenever I go on internet explorer.

    The only files I have downloaded/installed recently are as follows: GunZ: The duel and the Ijji installer, and "Comodo Internet firewall + antivirus" and Comodo was recommended by a family member so I thought why not check it out. After installation it seemed legit, run a scan and performed a good system clean, but now this virus has appeared and I'm suspicious.

    Anyone else had a problem with this before? Any advice on how to deal with this?

    I usually wouldn't ask for help, but AVG has been my antivirus for a while and it can't seem to target this particular virus.

    Thanks for reading.

    Get a different antivirus and scan... Or do a system restore.

    AVG is pathetic, get something like Avast! or Antivir.

    Tried installing Avast, but the connection was interrupted and I was signed out of msn at the same time so thats a bad sign :|

    Im gonna try the manual setup of avast and see if it makes a difference now. Thanks for the recommendations Epyks

    That happened to me and still is. If you have McAfee Security Center, Scan with that. But the damn scan won't finish because OF DAMN ANTI-VIRUS

    Thanks for the help guys, but this virus seems too troublesome to bother with so I'm gonna just do a system restore. Lock the thread if necessary
