Antivirus Pro 2009, AntivirusPro 2009 or AVP2009, is a program that pretends to be a legitimate anti-spyware tool for your computer. AntivirusPro 2009 performs the same type of tactics that many other rogue anti-spyware programs use. AntivirusPro 2009 attempts to get computer users to purchase the complete AntivirusPro 2009 program through popups and system messages that usually lie about you having parasites present on your system.

AntivirusPro 2009 is completely fake and is not useful for removal of spyware or any other parasites that it may have found during a system scan. AntivirusPro 2009 may conduct a system scan without your permission but you must remember that the results are all bogus. AntivirusPro 2009 may come directly from the antiviruspro2009.com website or from another source such as a Trojan infection that installs the AntivirusPro 2009 automatically. AntivirusPro 2009 is similar to other known rogue anti-spyware programs like Antivirus 2009, XP Antivirus and Windows Antivirus 2008.

AntivirusPro 2009 may be very difficult to manually remove in certain situations. It is suggested to utilize a good spyware scan tool to detect and remove AntivirusPro 2009 safely from your system.

    I am very displeased with the Windows Anti virus Pro 2009 that worked its way into my laptop. If anyone every finds the SOB(s) who made this program i would find great pleasure in knowing who they are and where i can find them. I am not a violent person by nature, but when someone messes with the last present i received from my deceased father, you can understand my frustration, anger and rage. I am only one person with little knowledge about computers. When you mess with my stuff, you mess with a part of what defines me, and that makes me angry. I hope that anyone able of creating grief through viruses will realize their malignancy and stop their deeds (whether you work for a company or not) this type of bullshit should not be happening, it is rotten and disgusting.

    My computer is infected with antivirus pro. I used avg antivirus to remove other viruses but cannot remove antivirus pro. I went to add/remove programs and was able to uninstall part of it. It remains as an icon in my systems tray, and a message telling me that i have spyware continually pops up. What can i do to get rid of this terrible program. I almost subscribed to it. THank you.

    I was infected earlier this year by Antivirus Pro. I purchased your software and removed it no problem. But now it is back and I have run the scan from your software but I can't seem to get rid of it. I am writing this from work because it would not let me get on the internet yesterday. Do you have any suggestions?

  • David Keys says:

    The Antivirus Pro virus malware(?) has changed. it now prevents any .exe program from running including Task Manager. it is not stored under AntivirusPro or any recognizable variant. i cannot find it to remove it. downloading any program doesn't help as the program will not be allowed to run. Also tried safe mode unsuccessfully. any suggestions?
