I have been attacked by the virus "antivirus xp 2008" and can't get rid of it! I have downloaded the following programs but none have been able to remove it: spyware doctor, spyhunter, superantispyware, malwarebytes' and ad-aware 2007. I get the typical pop-ups saying I have viruses and need to download the "anitvirus xp 2008" program. My background is also a blue screen that says " you have a virus and need to download a program" I also get the horrible blue screen. I have also tried to manual remove it, but can't get it to work. When I do start-run-cmd i get the prompt C:/document and settings/owner. I can get it to c:/ but it won't find any of the .dll i need to delete. Please help with this problem...i am at a complete loss!!!

Welcome to bleeping computer cowgurl

Pardon me I was a 2 stepper long ago and far away

Spyhunter and adaware are pretty ineffective with these newer infections

Would you run MBAM, ATF cleaner and SAS in the exact order specified in this post

Make sure you update and install according to the directions


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
