Have you managed to rid yourself of it Manrow?
I have recently just managed to get rid of Antivirus 2008.
I'm not really tech-savvy so after reading previous subjects on the matter(but none the wiser) i decided to do a factory reset as system restore wouldn't work.
My system is now running like a dream(well, compared to how it was before the reset).
Anyway,thanks for the warning............will stay well clear!
