A computer at work totally unprotected (!) except by the XP firewall became infected back in August (!) with Windows Antivirus Pro. I followed the tutorial given on this site: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...s-antivirus-pro
However, although the first bit of the procedure, downloading Fixtm.reg and merging it with the data in the registry, worked, so that I was able to use the Windows Task Manager, the process called Windows Antivirus Pro.exe was simply not
in the processes list. The process svchast.exe was there and I did terminate it. However, I cannot open MBAM, previously installed on the computer, or indeed any other program (a window just momentarily opens and then closes). Yet Windows Antivirus Pro is very active, telling me that any site I go to has infected my computer and constantly offering me the wonderful opportunity to purchase this 'antivirus' program.
Any help much appreciated, but I should tell you that I am quite ignorant of computers!
