Getting rid of Antvirus 2008 and 2009

If you are one of the thousands of users who have made the mistake of downloading and then installing Anitvirus 2008 or 2009 here are some helpful ways to remove it.  The most important thing to do is not install any other software that claims it will remove them.  They will not work and will only waste your money.

First thing to try is a system restore.  This will work for some but unfortunately not for all.
For those that need to do more it becomes a bit more complicated.
You will need to do a search for files based on time and date.
Any files created at the time and date you acquired the download are to be deleted this will include both files and folders.
You will also need to look in system start up and uncheck any reference to 2008 or 2009.

If you find all this much to complicated please feel free to contact me.
