the computer is a compaq running windows xp. I am unable to get my avg updates, unable to open Malwarebytes or spybot or adaware. I cannot access any download site to get updates or even reinstall these programs. I believe that the virus has over written my boot ini. However I do not know how to get rid of it. Anyone with experience in this? Please help!!!! :thumbsup:

Rename this file:

C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

to something else such as abcde.bat. Then double-click the renamed file and see if Malwarebytes will run.
