Using a a work computer with windows xp sp 3. Navigated to a site/link that apparently downloaded Personal Protector that has hijacked virus scanning task manager and desktop to name a few things.

List of items in the Presonal Protector Folder in program file:

folder called q

cannot delete because they are in use/ cannot shut down because of task mannager hijack

Can I get some help with this please?

ABE 12/22:
Attempted to run rkill as told to when i had a similar infection on a home pc a couple of months ago:
Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.
Link 2
Link 3
Link 4
Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.

Each attempt to run was blocked by personal protector giving you the ".... is infected with worm Lsas.Blaster.Keyloger. This worm is trying to send your credit cart details using...." spelling errors included.

Still unable to get task manager or anything else that may be useful to combat this.
