    XP antivirus 2009 is very difficult to remove rogue/Trojan malware. it is not a legitimate anti-virus package...

    If you are infected with this may I suggest you visit a HiJackThis forum to have someone assist you in cleaning your system... Because I would believe if you have paid the blackmail for garbage, then you will have other infections.

    Please read this location, follow the instructions and they will help you clean your system...

    www.theeldergeek.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=13415

    Here is a website to help you prepare for a clean operating system install - it was written for Microsoft XP, but most of these things will help you prepare with Vista...

    Wish you the best, and sincerely hope you have not purposely installed this infectious malware in a newer system... If you posted this as a joke, then I hope others reading this, will not get caught with this malicious badguy.

    XP antivirus 2009 IS a virus, and if you have paid for it, you have given your credit card number to criminals in Russia. Contact your credit provider!

    XP anti-virus 2009 is a malicious rogue program. You need to uninstall it as soon as possible, and get Malwarebytes to remove any viruses that it put on your computer.
