Somehow I picked up a nasty little problem called (oddly enough) "Antivirus 2008". It performs scans... "finds" false threats... and asks for $50 to DL some software.

It can't be uninstalled through add/remove programs... has disabled my task manager... and gives me popups constantly.

Anyone else run into this? Is there an easy way to get rid of it? AVG couldn't... I've downloaded and am running Spybot now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Spybot will probably take care of it.

Yeah, spybot should do it.

I told you to watch out surfing porn. I know you like seeing midgets go at it with goats and german shepherds, but you have to be more careful.

Why is it you know so much about deviant animal sex?

Why is it you know so much about deviant animal sex?I was born in West Virginina, almost as many inbreds and beast-f*ckers as Oklahoma, although they lag far behind Arkansas.

That would explain the fact you can't spell West Virginia and other things as well.

Hmm... it didn't take care of Antivirus 2008, but it found lots of other things I didn't know were there. I've updated it, and am running it again.

I usually spell it West Virgina.

Friggin trojans. Had a problem like this a year or two back, but I hadn't seen it lately.

Looks pretty legit, if you didn't know any better.
