I has theXP Antivius on three machines and thought that i had cleaned them up. Two were lap top loaners fomr work. I was getting ready to return one nd uninstalled all the aditional software that I had installed, including what ever I used to get rid of XP Antivirus. This machine has also lost the ability to connect to the internet through a wirless router and does not have a lan connection. I was geting ready to transfer files form it that I need ( work data sets) when all of a sudden, I started to get the XP Antivirus pop ups as a windows security warning XPAntivirus is inactive" "Kernels under attack"' , etc. I really need to get my work files from this machine. Since i cn now "downlaod software" form the internet, my questions are:
(1) Will XP Antivirus attached to files that I download to a thumb drive from the infected machine?
(2) Assuming that the ansr to q1 is yes. How do I get rid of it?
Like I stated I no longer have HIJAC, MALWAREBYTES, AVG, Spybot, adware; just a vry outdated
I will appecaiate any assistance ya'll can give me.
