Comments on Vista Antispyware 2011

As mentioned earlier, you can disable it by using system restore, but make sure you do it in the repair mode. Using system restore in normal operating mode wont kill it.

Doesnt hurt to run a good system scan and and tune up at a repair facility as well.

Also, beware of some of the sleazier porn sites ! Yeah thats where I got mine. :o.
After much frustrating messing about found the comment about Microsoft Security Essentials. Worked perfectly. Thanks
> MS Security Malware detected, although at first and tried to detain him and, of course intermediary for the infection still occurred.
> Avira disappointed this time the full line. Even if malware detected, youll eat at all could not cope.
> While antimalware found and "pretended" to remove that, but with minor bugs.
After removing Vista Antimalware completely stopped working security center, rehabilitation center, antivirus, firewall and defender were not going to run.

Please use the restore points, then the laptop recovery tool from the notebook manufacturer. And everything will be ok.
All right, the best thing EVER I have found for this horrible virus (which still unfortunately requires another computer) is downloading Microsoft Security Essentials off of the Microsoft website. Its the best program Ive ever had (way better than Norton) and its FREE!!
Just run a quick scan, it detects it, and then its gone. I spent all day trying to find a solution to this virus and nothing on any forums. This did, hallelujah. And its even protected me from it two other times. One of those times just now when I clicked a link on google. Microsoft Security Essentials picked it up and cleaned it off in a matter of seconds.
I have another code in case that doesnt work.
does anyone know how to reset the system to a previous date? i think it uses task manager? but i cant remember how to get there manually. Help?
I followed the above instructions and it didnt even work (without paying).

However, I ran a system restore, to about two weeks ago, and its gone.
worked great and got rid of the vista antispyware.
yep, I tried everthing to get rid of this, actually unsure how it got through my high priced virus / spyware program, on my business computer. Finally got a brain fart and retored ny system to an earlier date. system works great again.

Not hard to tell that this is a scam though with all those spelling mistakes, but what a bitch!!!
i fought with vista anti spyware for a couple of hours & no trick that I knew could get rid of it for any length of time.... I contacted my credit card company & told them what was going on, I told them I was going to purchase their product then stop payment on it, (I have my own retail buss) the credit card company will "charge back" the monies on my card, they will have to fight it, either way win or loose it costs them 35.00 for a chargeback fee.....

if everyone did this to each b.s. company that puts a virus on your computer & then tries to make you buy their system, it would cost them a fortune!!!!!

hope it all works out in the end,

p.s. the guy I talked to from the cc company had to chuckle, :& said it was a great idea....

Though I couldnt launch .exe files, it seemed to work when I right clicked and ran as administrator.
