Has anybody been hit with AV 360? What did you do? Any input would be helpful--it's blocked my access to sites with spyhunter--so I can't down load it--uggh.

Bear in mind you might have to reboot your computer in Safe Mode to do it.

Malware Bytes is real good at getting all the bits out of AV 360. Also, if you're not in safe mode, check your Stystem Tray (by the clock.) If AV 360 has installed, it will have a little icon there. SHUT IT DOWN. That will help you get your computer back.

I hate AV360... with a passion nearly equal to my hatred for Comcast.

It's attacked my computer too, but I had to resort to paying somebody to clean everything up. It's nasty!

That's a compliment for Comcast.

spyhunter remover w/suite did the trick. had to start from safety mode.

big hugs for all your help.


No help with AV 2009---had to remove spyhunter.



Got newest Norton Anti virus----plus malwarebytes', ccleaner, and spybot search and destroy.

True. I read somewhere that Comcast has a lower approval rating than the IRS.
