Hi there. For the past few hours I've been using the guides on this website to help get rid of a virus, which I have now identified as antivirus system pro, from my computer. I've followed all the steps, only it hasn't worked!
I ran the rkill program, which seemed to work because it got rid of all of the annoying messages. Afterwards I ran the anti-malware program, which found one threat. There may have been more, because I tried it earlier on safe mode and it found and took care of 40 threats. At any rate, I got rid of the threats, and everything seemed good. I restarted my computer to check, and the annoying popup for antivirus system pro came up again!
Will I have to do this process every time I log in?
Because I thought this would completely get rid of it.

I'm running Windows XP Home edition.

My computer is working fine at the moment, but I'm worried that as soon as I shut it down and restart it the stupid thing will come back again.
