this is a general FYI - Please avoid downloading the "anti virus" program Anti-virus 2008.
It has been reported to be a virus itself by a number of people. - If you have downloaded it I wouldn't recommend trying to remove it yourself as it could seriously harm your system.
You'll either need to take it into the "geek squad" or reformat with your windows disk and hope that fixes it. (Please ask who owns the computer before doing anything like this).
This Bogus system's contact information doesn't work at all -
so you're also out of luck in contacting the "company" at all.
Also, if you're asked to download the new Java program check their site at Java.com and do not download it from random sites.
Stay safe everyone. When in doubt, don't download it.
Thank you TIAkinZ for more information:

It usually starts out as a pop-up ad, saying you have a virus, and you can run a free virus-scanner. Next thing you know, the program is installed, and if you don't pay for it, it runs constantly, and gives fake warnings, and says you need to pay for the program for it to clean the virus.
If you try and uninstall it, good luck! It either won't, or it will, but next time you restart your computer, its back! You need to manually delete every exe, dll, and lnk file, as well as the registry values, and also, make sure all related processes are stopped first, because you can't delete a file in use.
Not to mention you now also need to get rid of any spyware, malware, and/or trojans this thing came bundled with.
These programs are a pain to remove, your best bet is to not get it in the first place. And this isnt the type of virus that sneeks in with some email attachment, they almost always start out as a pop-up ad for a free virus scan/removal, never ever click on those!
