Ok, been trying to figure this for the last 2 days.

I was unfortunately attacked with the AntiVirus XP 2008 'fake' Anti Virus programme.

The only way I could stop this thing from popping up and over running my laptop was to go into my registry and remove all files to do with this programme.

After a restart I thought everything was solved, till I did a full system scan with Norton.

3 virus' were found, but I cannot remove them. The only message that shows is:
2 x 'Downloader.MisleadApp cannot be removed from an unsuported file'
1 x 'AntiVirus2008 cannot be removed from an unsuported file'

The only option I get for those is to 'Review' them.

Anyway, thanks for hearing my ramblings, any help (as long as it isn't too complicated) in removing these problems will be greatly aprechiated.

Thanks

Hi, welcome to TSG!

This is a thread involving malware, so you must post it in the correct section.
Please create a new thread in the Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs forum and an expert will get to you.

Read the stickied threads in that category and post a HijackThis log there.

Good luck!
