I'm getting frustrated. For some reason, Windows Police Pro downloaded itself on my computer yesterday, and it's pretty much a mess. I manage to delete the program files, but I know I'm not out of woods yet. Nothing seems to work. Nothing. The whole desote.exe thing keeps popping up.
Running any antivirus is useless because it just clicks off. I've tried running McAffee, Panda Security (online version), Malware, Hijackthis, RSIT, Win32kDiag, and Rootappeal. Everytime it starts, it stops. I took an advise of another poster and rename to desote.exe file. It helped, and I could at least get to command prompt. But with that it still does not work. Things like Malware and such just don't run (even though they show themselves in the Task Manager). Other programs like RSIT and Win32k start, but once it starts scanning (or touching the registry, I assume), it gets shot down. When I try to start them up again in the command prompt, it says ACCESS DENIED. I really don't know what to do at this point. I cannot give you logs because something is blocking the heck of my attempts. What I need to do is at least get rid of whatever is blocking my attempts, or work around it.
Please, any help is appreciated. I'm running Windows XP.
PS: I'm using my laptop for this, for I cannot get online with the infected desktop because IE doesn't work.
