    This antivirus 2008 software is BOGUS. It not only screwed up my primary harddrive so badly that I had to pull it & rteplace the drive. I could NOT get rid of it, it runs constantly in the background & will NOT delete using ANY regular means, (Add/Remove from control panel, from a command prompt, from program files, etc. Not olly that, when I was told it would cost $42.00 & I paid for it, a $84.95 charge came up. Phone calls, emails to them are futile. Now I have to dispute this charge w/ my credit card Co., & as a safety measure, have changed my card number.

    I purchased the same software but have not down loaded it. I guess I'm out a $110. Did any one have any other problems with their identity being stolen?

    We got scamed! We got a pop up saying that r pc had 44 viruses and we needed to action now or the computer would crash. We bought it on line for $50. We never got the software to work. I was always # 20 when I would call the FAKE customer service then they would say that their message box was full and hang up. Looks like i'm out $50 and the Autivirus 2008 ### is still in my PC. I have tried everything to get rid of it. The PC is working but for how long? And I'm now worried about idenity being stolen! We need to get these people and make them pay! What can we do?

    I purchased the Antivirus 2008 and it did not run on my computer. Some of the components did install but not all of them. It took me a long time to learn how to uninstall these components and I have still not been able to get a refund of my payment. The company really hides it's identity from others.

    I couldnt believe it! i was scammed. with all my precautions i fell for upgrading software with something that sounds legitimate..spyware...then malware..after paying the first $40 and trying the customer care number after 10 mins to usa from a mobile i realised i would never get my money back. i called my bank and they explained they could follow it up. from this site it could take years. thanks for this information and website, i found it by googling the customer care number provided on their fake invoice..all i can say is, dont by a thing on the internet. all experiences bad. thanks to i was able to immediately remove the software..not that the activation key i was given even worked. it was just there..well..i'm over it. vented.

    ATTENTION ALL OTHERS THAT HAVE JUST BEEN ###ED OVER!!!i had the exact same thing happen to me too. pop up saying i need to down load the antivirus. the same ### all the above has discribed. but how do i remove it. pleeeeese help me. i went into a computer store to see if they had any information about this product, the guy informed me that it was a haux and that 3 other people have also had the same problem. he also said that it is a virus not an antivirus that can not be detected by other antivirus software because its got a virus in its self or something like that. he doesnt know that much about it but you have to restore the computer to its original state to get rid of it. he advised me as i am to you's to get in touch with the police and file a complaint about internet fraud. lets get these ###!!!. the more of us that file a complaint to the police against this so called company 'ANTIVIRUS 2008' ??? the better chance we will have this problem solved. but i wld so love it if somebody can tell me how to get rid of this programme, to save me restoring my computer. cheers, good luck to all xox

    Antivirus 2008 pro is a scam, I'm sorry for those who it is to late. There are a few ways to fix the problem, one would be doing it manually and the other is having a real program that will delete it for you.
