A quick way to get rid of Antivirus 2008 is do a PC recovery.
I was lucky to have the date the pest arrived and back dated my PC to the day before.
All went so smoothly I couldn't believe my luck as we had tried some of the hints of other unluckly PC users. Go for it and good luck. May

DO NOT BUY. IT IS A MALWARE PARASITE. And if you did contact your credit card company and put on more security to prevent Identity Theft!!

Rule of thumb. If you don't know what it is best not buy it. Especially if it just comes on your system out of nowhere!

Cheers.

If you PAID, call your CC company and report it as fraud. Do not let that stand. Report it as 100% fraud. Say you never authorized it and have no idea what it is.
