This is my first time here so I hope I do this right! I unforunately got WinPC Defender on my PC which is an HP compaq NC8000 and my OS is XP Pro SP3. When I looked for a solution I downloaded Spydoctor, but unfortunately, nothing could be fixed until I became a premium member which I cannot afford at this time. I then downloaded Malwarebytes Anti Malware but when I go to open it it won't. In its properties menu "Start in" section is empty. I then downloaded Spybot search and destroy and again it wont open, but there is an active icon down in the right corner saying that new process are being scanned. This has been for 3 or 4 days now still scanning. My computer is and is freezing all the time. Also when I search in Google it redirects me to all kinds of different search sites. Can someone help me...I might be new at this, but I would say I am infected! Thankyou! :thumbsup:

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

first you stop Unwanted Services from Task manager . then after trying to install the program, and also i want tell you that Malwarebytes is also good software to remove any kinds of Spyware virus. I think you download the wrong one that why it show Start in" section is empty. try to search in Goolge ( Malwarebytes ).
