Hijacked by AntiVirus Gold

Guest

You are using programs that are probabily bundled with spyware. I only know
about the good stuff. I never heard of AVGold, Nuker, Softspy etc. Don't buy
anything without checking with www.spywareinfo.com for a start. I use free
avast virus software, free ad-aware, free spybot s&d, free microsoft-beta
antispyware (not all at the same time) and I never had a problem. Security is
#1. My advice, download "eraser" from heidi software (free), create a floppy
nuke disk, erase the disk clean, reformat, and install a clean os. Then
install sp2 for a firewall, update at microsoft, get zone alarm
firewall-free, avast, and what I mentioned before. Before you buy an app, a
game, especially free screensavers, learn all you can about adware and
spyware. If you have a good virus program (avast updates automatically)
you'll be ok.

Antivirus gold Fix

hi, i read all these posts and was having to same problem with that darn trojan two days ago. I have found a solution and i felt obligated to post it for all of u. I have ad-aware running on my computer and it just wasnt cutting. What i ended up doing was downloading the freeware version of Spybot Search and Destroy and the free 15-day trial of Webroot Spy Sweeper. I ran them all together and it fixed it. I think that the Webroot Spy Sweeper was the key because in the free scan that you can do on their website, it was the only program to recognize the antivirus gold as a trojan. I dont know if it worked because all three programs removed part of it but it worked. Webroot asked me to reboot the system and when i did, there was no warning in the backround and no (X) in the toolbar.

Hope that helps,
Dazed and Confused

Hey,

If i was being honest too , I also fell for the codec trick (www.vcodec.com or something, DO NOT DOWNLOAD) whilst needing to watch "Amusements". Looking through a few replies here none of you have it as bad as you do (might not have read a post that has this problem). The website that the warning is linked to in the desktop might or it might be one of the viruses shoved in, is constantly crashing my active desktop leaving me with no time to get 3 clicks in before i get the "Send Error Report" window from Windows before it crashes and flicks up again and crashes, it continues doing this until i rapid click the shutdown buttons before it crashes again :). Turns out also that my brother was going to change our antivirus software but 'didn't get round to finishing the job'. And with this problem i cant even install new software or even have enough time to pay the criminals (that's gotta be able to be dealt with?). Help asap please.

Hello Terry,

I had the EXACT same problem as you (with ANTIVIRUS GOLD) and solved it
as detailed below.

I read the follow-up posts to your original email and it seems that
some of the responses missed the nail in helping you out (one guy even
criticized you for installing "off-brand" antivirus... - he missed the
WHOLE point of your email for help not realizing that you DID NOT
install ANTIVIRUS GOLD ant that it simply took over your system).

In any event, I went to antivirus-gold.com customer service and emiled
a complaint asking how to get rid of this. But of course they never
responded.

I WAS able to get rid of it though and mayby this will help you to.

I'm running under XP Pro.

In Windows "Help and Support" (accessible via Start button), I clicked
"Undo changes to your computer with System Restore".

I then selected "Restore my computer to an earlier time". When the
calendar came up, I selected an available restore point a few days
BEFORE the time when this whole problem started, rebooted as requested,
and it's fine now.

How it happened: In my case, I let my guard down by stopping both
McAfee Vscan and McAfee AntiSpyware. I stopped these because I was
burning DVD's for my business. When the burning completed, I forgot to
re-arm these guys and went surfing. I hit a site that needed to load a
CODEC to run the video. I run a film to DVD business and I try to make
sure I always have all the latest CODECS and so I loaded the new
"codec" and that's when the problem started. (ok ok, it was a porn site
;-)

I would appreciate you letting me know if this solution help you at
all.

Veliko

AV Gold

I have the same problem as sir rob with one of the t888ers at work who has managed to get it on his laptop. I am going to just wipe his system. I can't find anyway around it. The annoying thing is we have Symanted v9 all fully updated and on auto monitor but somehow this rubbish still got through.

BTW I checked out the AV Gold website and they aren't far from me in central London, I have a goood mind to go round there and have a serious "discussion". I can't believe the useless putrid little whores.

I had AV Gold on my computer too,and tried to do as quoted bellow,but i
my case there was no winnook.exe there,but there was a process calle
hookdump.exe. I unchekked it,and after reboot,the red little button i
the lower right corner is gone.then I ran Spybot and removed the file
that was found.rebooted and ran spybot again,I don't know much abou
computers,but it seems to me like I have got rid of this mess.
