    I dont know how this got on my computer, but I think I accidently clicked on a link, after I had formatted my drive . Anyway! I now have nudetube porntube and some other called your Protection, which keep popping up tellin me I'm running a trial version, and Norton keepes blocking something called CoreGuard Antivirus 2009 however I scanned with Norton 360 and Malwarebytes Apparently they quarentined and blocked some but theres a whole **** load more :oops: theres icons in my taskbar telling me my computer is in danger, then popups dim out the screen demanding I purchase their ****. I have malwarebytes enabled in protection mode on startup along with norton 360 Premier, but it seems they arnt getting this Job done? does anyone have any sugestions besides reformatting My PC again :doubt:

    You clicked on a link after formatting your PC? The easiest (and most safe) solution would be to format the PC again (done in what... 1-2 hours?)... have some fun watching the games like Diprivan said ;)

    Info on CreGuard Antivirus 2009 here (in alphabetical order, the links just contain the info on the changes made to your system)

    http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/rogues/c

    If you look under P you may find your Protection problem as well.

    In reply to all who answered

    1: I have $100 on Man U to win 3-1 @ 8/1 :D

    2: No not tried the programs sugested, as I may just reformat anyway if my last option Avira Premium Security finds nothing. (but it should) (I paid enough for it :p)

    3: Norton 360 and Malwarebytes both failed misserably to remove these annoyances (polite term for B******* :p )

    4: HOORAY! For Avira, all removed! :cool:

    Still run hitman pro just for backup. Scan will only take five minutes, it doesn't run in real-time, only on-demand, so won't conflict with your setup.

    Personally I would format anyway. You never know what may still be on there. When Windows first boots (before clicking on any links) install an imaging program and make an image. Some imaging programs you can make images by booting from a CD without even having to install the progam. Do this regularly as you add programs and you will very rarely ever have to format again. Just restore the image. Somewhere soon after that you might want to consider using a sandbox.

    In the end that was my descision, I wiped with WipeDrive Pro and overwrote the entire drives, took overnight to do it, but I know for sure now my drives are spotless :cool: and now to install my AV before anything else, no more stupid mistakes on my behalf :argh:

    Hi DVD+R,

    This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support Team.

    Please follow the instructions in the following document to properly configure Norton 360 to scan properly and remove the Coreguard Antivirus 2009 infection, which is what is known as a "misleading application."

    Removal instructions for the CoreGuardAntivirus2009 infection

    Thank you,
    Mike

    You accidently clicked on a link that needed an adobeflash update to view it maybe and which was unknown to most Antimalware apps at the time?

    adobeflashplayerv10.0.45.2.exe - Result: 22/40 (55%)
    Gen:Variant.TDss.2
    Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Fraudload

    Your Protection prompts to uninstall Malwarebytes if present. Saying no to the uninstall and MBAM will still get a scan going and remove this rogue, updated first of course.
