A few minutes ago my husband told me there was a pop up on his computer, one of those that even if you close it out it won't go away.
I looked at it and it was the dire warning from XP Antivirus 2009.
Bringing up task manager made the popup close.

Right now, I'm scanning his computer with SAS, when that finishes I'll install Malwarebytes and scan with that. Then I'll run NOD32. (SAS and NOD scans are run every Sunday anyway, so it is time for them)
After these scans, is there anything else I need to do to make sure that garbage isn't infecting his system?

He didn't do anything with XP Antivirus 2009 after he discovered it wouldn't close out. Sometimes he may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, but he did know to leave that one alone.
It popped up while he was on a trusted site, but had done some 'net surfing earlier this morning so no way to tell where it came from.

This combination of MBAM from normal mode and the atf and SAS from safe mode seem to be very effective with a wide range of infections, however a followup with another MBAM scan would then indicate whether further work is needed

For general surfing to questionable web links I use FireFox with noscript addon enabled, and use the immunize function from spybot to protect IE surfing

Winpatrol is another highly reccomended protection

SAS found a few tracking cookies when I ran it in normal mode. After the other scans, I re-ran it in safe mode and it found nothing.

Malwarebytes found nothing.

NOD32 came up clean.

At the moment, I'm satisfied that his system is not infected. I am not a security expert
and if there is anything else I need to do, please let me know.
I did run HJT while I was on that computer if it's needed.

Thank you Chewy for responding.

P.S.- I've never used ATF cleaner until today. I liked it. Will use that for future pc housekeeping.

XP Home.

I did more than a double take when I saw how long it said the scan took.

No idea how long it actually was, I hit scan, went outside, sat down in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair, read the newspaper, drinking my coffee.

It was finished when I came back inside.

Nod is the trial version. I just wanted to try it out. It expires soon, and will probably go back to AVG.

I just ran Malwarebytes on my computer, which also has Nod, and is XP home:

That's good news. :thumbsup:

Rescan again with MBAM in a day or so. Do a Quick Scan in normal mode which is the most effective way to run MBAM. If anything is found, check all items and reboot afterwards back to normal mode.

Thank you Quietman.
I'll rescan Tuesday or Wednesday.
No more "I have a situation" calls from my husband today so all must be ok so far.

QE,
If you ever find out what's wrong with your hubby's computer and MBAM let us know, I was wondering why it was using such an old database and version to scan with also?

I downloaded Malwarebytes from the link in Chewy's post above. Installed, updated, then ran.
Also dl'ed it from there for use on my computer.

I scanned my computer a few minutes ago.
From today scan log AND from yesterday it's the same thing.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.25
Database version: 1082
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3

No idea why outdated database on my husbands system. I did update before scanning. I think it asks to update during the install process, but can't recall for sure if it did. Even if it did update during install, I always manually update before a scan.
Next time I run it on his system update first and see what it shows after the scan.

The reason I asked was, there has been some history with problems removing the older version and installing the new one. I would suggest a manual uninstall and reboot before a clean install of the new version on your husbands computer
