Angry I'm Pretty sure I have the ANTIVIRUS 2009

Well I've been doing some searching on computer virus and my computer has the exact syptoms of the virus named (antivirus 2009)
My antivirus software will not update, I cannot load any antivirus software website, If I search anything having to do with antivirus etc... it redirects me to stupid websites, when I run all the spyware and antivirus removers I have it returns nothing. I only payed $250 dollars for the computer and all professional computer repair places want $100 at least to remove it! Does anyone know how to do this? I ******* hate computer viruses Please no links to help me it will just redirect me to something un-related I know its not impossible to remove I just don't know how please help Ill paypal money for helping etc...

download and install the free malware-bytes anti-malware software.
Malwarebytes.org
update it and run the anti-malware scan
after it's done, go to Free ESET Online Antivirus Scanner and run that scan to pick up any remaining infections.

Doesn't look like it, but you're not in the right spot, either.

While in the registry, do a search (F3) for antivirus 2009, and delete those values.

This one was a little tough for me. I tried deleting it and all its registry values, but it hid itself under a couple different names in various places. It would always (eventually) come back.

I found malwarebytes last week which worked great. No problems since.

Your website redirection/blocking probably has to do with your HOSTS file and it lists IPs or domains and redirects them. Read about it here: Hosts file - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have a very good antivirus/firewall program, and I couldnt get rid of that ****. After several days I just reformatted, my laptop was running slow lately anyways. I hope whoever wrote that **** gets aids, herpes, chlamydia, and gives it to his mom who bites his **** off and feeds it to him. There should be a death penalty for people who write viruses.

Easy as cake to remove.

Go to bleepingcomputer.com and download Combofix.exe. Run it, dont worry about recovery console, just run it. I cleaned 5 computers with it so far without a hitch.

Download MalwareBytes, run that after.

Download Spybot Search and Destroy, immunize your computer and run the scan.

DO ALL THIS IN SAFE MODE.

Install Avast Antivirus.

Done.
