My wife was using our laptop (XP MCE) to browse a download site for manuals that she uses for work, and she thinks a script from an ad installed PC Antivirus2010... She said she didn't actually download anything, so I'm not sure what exactly happened, but we are now getting "antivirus" ads all over the computer.
I've gone through Avast, AVG and Ad-Aware. All of them pick up on certain files, but once they hit a certain folder they stop working alltogether. Once that happens, I either can't open the program or the programs just won't scan anymore. Sometimes I get a blue screen, other times the PC runs fine except for the "antivirus" programs popping up all over the place.
I've gone through and wiped out a few things, like braviax.exe, but I'm not making any headway with whatever is on the PC.
So, what should I do next?
Thanks for the help!
