Is "Anti Virus Professional" malware?
Since I've been using xp with windows one care for the last couple of years I switched to xp-64 pro which has no support at all, I've installed OS 7 and need antivirus protection.
DOes anyone reccomend Anti Virus Professional.

I am a beta tester for Malwarebytes' Anti Malware - I searched the private rooms, and it (Anti Virus Professional) is *indeed* a malicious product. Steer clear of it.

Best bet is to get Micro$oft's Security Essentials via M$ Connect.

If Malwarebytes' products were malware, I sure as hell wouldn't be beta testing for them lol.

No, I was replying to the post before me, but I'll edit my post to reflect that more clearly.

This is a virus alert for Antivirus Professional!
After installing Windows 7 on a virgin machine I downloaded and installed "Antivirus Professional" BEWARE!! This is a rogue virus!
Using Malaware I immediately saw that the registry was hijacked along with other trojans wich installed themselves on the hard drive!

Would you mind reposting the log, copying it from notepad and pasting it using either the [ quote ] & [ /quote ] tags or the [ code ] & [ /code ] tags?

First of all, that will leave all the line breaks in the log, making it a lot easier to read, and secondly, it will eliminate the black font coloring that you got (assuming you pasted from either Outlook or Word).

here is what it looks like to everyone using the Black - RC skin on these forums:

As you can see, the black font makes it nearly illegible, and the lack of line breaks makes it virtually unreadable even without the coloring....

Thanks.
