Antivirus Gold has Hi-jacked my compter & desktop.
What steps are required to permantly remove it, as it will not allow me to uninstall
it, or allowed any other program download solution I have tried to resolve it.
My machine has slowed considerably and fear losing important data. HELP!

Hi Ricardo New Zealand and welcome,

Reboot into SAFE MODE

Go to Add/Remove programs and remove

Antivirus Gold

Now while still in safe mode

Make sure you can view all Hidden Files/Folders search for and delete the files highlighted in BOLD
C:\Windows\System32\hookdump.exe
C:\Windows\System32\winnook.exe
C:\Windows\desktop.html
C:\Windows\screen.html




Restart your computer


Next

Please go Here and unzip the newest version of HJT into a new dedicated folder,
Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT.
You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it hjt. Unzip HijackThis into this folder. Launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log
This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.
Most things are harmless and needed so don't make any changes.
post a log here please.

I found the hookdump.exe but the other 3 were not to be foun, could this be because we had already deleted antivirus gold.
By the way my partner wants to know is this a legit programme or is it just a dummy front?
Cheers Ricardo
