hi,

got a notice on my desktop (PC- windows xp) saying im infected with win32.zafi.b and i need to buy a program to remove it. I could not go on line after that so i went into safe mode.
I ran AVG and spybot but they did not find anything but malwarebytes found -trojan.fakealert. Is this the same as win 32.zafi.b or do i need to keep looking ?THanks in advance for any help

Pasting in additional information from a duplicate post. ~ OB

When I restarted computer the desktop was now showing HP ( i have a HP PC) and my other two user names that I use are now gone. My printer info is also gone. We loaded AVG and that found -Trojanhorse generic 12.bujr and adware generic 2 tqi and fake-antiplywarebld
. Malwarebytes anti-malware ran for almost 7 hours and found trojan.fake alert

End of added material. ~ OB

Thanks Bruce S.

Can you get into Normal mode now?
If not, use Safemode w/networking. Be sure to update Malwarebytes. Run a full scan and post the results
Mbam needs to run in Normal mode if at all possible
Post back with the log results
