I am pretty sure I have a virus of some kind. The Symantec Email Proxy is constantly popping up. The only way to stop it is to disconnect the internet connection. I found XP Spyware 2009 on my computer today and was able to get rid of that using Malwarebytes' Anti Malware. When I run that program, it identifies other malware, most of which it is able to remove, but there is one file in my Windows/System32/folder -- xwpxlo.dll -- that it cannot get rid of. Anti Malware tells me to reboot to clean up this file, but when I reboot, the Anti Malware clean up program is disabled (TC Monitor alerts me to the registry change and that the Anti Malware cleanup is an expected value but does not show up).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I ran Anti Malware again and detected new viruses. Again, I cannot get the Anti Malware to run clean up when I reboot as the virus seems to be screwing around with the registry.

I have run Anti Malware and ATF Cleaner several times. But the never ending Symantec Email Proxy keeps appearing. I even tried to disable scanning of outgoing emails, but that didn't seem to do anything.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
