    Unhappy "Antivirus Pro 2009" malware - How to remove it?

    Folks:

    I would appreciate if someone could be of help! I have ZA Extreme Suite V8 (latest & greatest, supposedly)! And I had it on "high" setting for both firewall & virus/spyware/malware intrusions.

    Alas, yesterday morning, I got attacked by "Antivirus Pro 2009" and ZA Extreme is NOT finding it (I should've known it since ZA let it in to my laptop).

    I tried to restore my laptop to an earlier date and I keep getting "restore is not possible" error message and the sh*t still is awake in my laptop!

    Anyone with any suggestions please?

    Thanks

    Hi!
    you have still version 8, so... you will not find the "Ultra Deep Scan". Skip the step.
    It would be good after cleaning to update to version 9 and be sure to have ZA forcefield virtualization turned ON.

    Cheers,

    Thanks fax. I did have ZAExtreme V9. But with desperation, I uninstalled it and downloaded & installed mbam! Ran the scan in safe mode and the malware is now gone. And now I have re-installed ZAX V9.

    I have a question for you! In ZAX V9, the anti-virus/anti-spyware tab shows only anti-virus/anti-spyware as the heading and there is NO seperate segment for these two. Meaning, when I update, I see the message "updating anti-virus" only and NOT anti-spyware. But I did pay for both. Is this something new in ZAX9?

    Thanks

    Please see ZAX9 release history. It is explained there...
    The scan engine has been unified.
