AV8 popup

Unread postby hm_sturgill » December 21st, 2010, 3:51 pm

While using Firefox, a popup will appear stating that AV8 has found a virus & it will perform actions to take care of the proplem & it closes out whatever page(s) I am on. I immediately close everything down & do NOT click on the popup. This has happened a few times & I have run Spybot S&D as well as Symantic antivirus. Neither have found anything. I have looked for anything related to AV8 in the inunstall programs panel, but cannot find it. So, here I am.

Hi hm_sturgill,

Welcome to the forum.

My nickname is deltalima and I will be helping you with your malware issue.

The logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.


Please note the following:
  • I will be working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • If after 3 days you have not responded to this topic, it will be closed, and you will need to start a new one.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

Before we start, I see Altiris system management software running. Is this computer or has it ever been connected to a business or educational network?

This laptop used to belong to the company my husband works for, but they stopped using them & got new ones. So we now own it & I use it as my personal laptop at home.

Please see here for the reasons that we cannot work on company or ex company computers.

The Altiris software cannot be removed without the server that it was installed from and would interfere with any scans or fixes that would be needed to clean up the laptop.

The only course of action that I can recommend is to reformat the computer and do a clean install of Windows.
