I want to report what I believe to be a total scam/rip-off!

I kept receiving a pop-up saying my computer had several viruses, worms, etc. It continued to interrupt me no matter what I was doing.

I thought it may be legit so I purchased a 1-year protection plan for 49.95. Of course once it was purchased it removed all of the “threats”. When I got the credit card bill it was from Moscow Russia and there was an exchange fee for rubles. DING DING. Theres nothing I can do about it since it’s been more that 30 days.(30-day money back) When I try to get the support number it only shows “page cannot be displayed”. Now it’s popping up again constantly, telling me I have all of these viruses again. When I go to my programs and run THE SAME spy guard program it scans and says “no viruses detected”. Hope nobody else is as gullible as I was. SPY GUARD 2008 = SCAM

    I received an email on my computer that I had spy ware corupting my computer and that I needed to install their program. I tried to delete it but it was to late it had already spread to the boot sector of my drive. To make a long story short, by the time I was done cleaning my computer again with a very strong virus program their anti spy program had installed 23 vriuses onto my computer. This program downloads itself onto your computer with a virus attached that is not easley detected by most virus programs.
