The other day I became infected with Internet Security 2010 malware. I found the fix on this site using rkill.exe and malwarebytes. I followed the instructions and was able to remove it from my system. The next day I ran Malwarebyte scan again and it did not find any issues. However, today it looks like Antivirus Live has infected my system. This is much more aggressive than IS 2010 because it kills off any program executable, including rkill.exe and Malwarebyte and anything else giving a fake warning message. Iím running XP-SP3 with an up-to-date AVG dictionary. The Malwarebyte version that successfully removed IS 2010 was the free one. HELP!

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

Try using the guide at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...-antivirus-live
You should delete the version of rkill that you have already have before proceeding.

Thank you for your help. Running a new copy of rkill.exe allowed the malwarebyte program to run and rid my system of the trojan. I donít understand why the old copy of rkill.exe didnít work but Iím back up and running again.

I would think that the attorney general ought to go after these fake spyware cleaners. Itís like putting nails in the road just before a tire shop. There are probably thousands of people that get hit with this every week but they donít have access to this helpful forum to resolve it without payout the $50 bucks.

Thanks again!!

Glad that you are up and running. It would be wise to run a scan at http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/ and then download atf cleaner from http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=c...5&Itemid=25
run it, select all, and empty selected
