I used the "How to remove Antivirus 2010" http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...-antivirus-2010
Malwarebytes removed it, but then there's still a red circle with X symbol icon on bottom right corner; when you click it, it installs the antivirus 2010 again, any suggestions? And antivirus 2010 poped up after i followed the steps to uninstall security central i think was the name....basicly Antivirus 2010 was not present, or maybe not shown before and all of a sudden poped up when i removed the first fake antivirus, thanks

eh...the computer is not mine, it's my friends mother's, she got mad because another one poped up after I deleted the old one. something was up with the windows registry too, it wanted the original CD again but she does not have it. She thinks i messed up her computer and does not want me to touch it again...
