Hello I am working on a friends computer on removing a program called "Total Security".

I've already researched on how to remove the program, i've even found the thread for the removal on bleepingcomputer. However after looking into his computer, it's gotten to a point where im not even able to run a program. A windows popup box at the bottom right of the screen constantly comes up saying that whatever i've tried to run is infected and that i should activate my antivirus software.

I have tried to run process explorer and task manager but the programs keep getting killed.

The PC can run on either Windows XP Professional or Home Edition although I'm not able to determin the Service packs for either of them due to termination from the TS program.

Any help will be appreciated

I've just checked some other topics on another site GeeksToGo and have realized that due to the extent of the infection, the only possible solution will be to reformat and install... This post is now closed.

Thank You... :thumbsup:
