Comments on AntiVira Av

I was able to disable antivira av bij system recovery (launched from safe mode). It worked (at least it's not visible anymore).
thanks so much for this - what a nightmare this was - it totally blocked my internet/pc . what a scam.
Thank you SOOO much for posting this. It was. Freaking me out because it wouldn't let me use my own computer. I knew it was a scam but I couldn't figure it out.

Thanks again for your help!
Hi there, this is absolutely great advice! Saved my computer, and wouldnt know what to have done without it! I would have thought that Anti Vira was a genuine program, and even thought about deleting AVG for it! Thank you ever so much for the help!
