I've been trying to remove this virus with no avail.
The problem: RCMP Ukash virus. When XP (32bit) attempts to start up, the desktop background appears and nothing else except this fake page telling me to send money to have my PC unlocked (looks like this http://tinyurl.com/cdyb567). There is a short period in which the taskbar and icons do load (during this time I can open up task manager, my computer, etc.). I am not able to start safe mode.
What I've tried: I've ran the bootable Windows Defender Offline which found a lot of things and apparently removed them. I've removed the HDD and scanned it with Malwarebytes and Avast which didn't help either. I used the Kaspersky Rescue Disc 10 (bootable) to run a scan (still didn't fix the problem). Used the AVG rescue disc, didn't remove the problem.
Any help would be appreciated!
