I am running XP

I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed.

Every time I turn on my PC I recieve notification that my computer is infected. Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) recommends I clean the infection. I get a notification from MSE informing me the the threat has been removed and then it gives me a warning about a suspicious file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Office.exe.

I have cleaned this infection every time I turn on the pc but it is still there. I have run Malwarebytes and SuperAntispy and both came back clean. Any suggestions as to what I should do?

Thanks in Advance!

From what I have gathered this is the Lovgate Worm or Trojan.MancSyn-B.
Each opens a backdoor and should be removed. I would boot into Safe Mode by tapping F8 upon restarting the machine. Once in Safe Mode, I would End the process office.exe if it is running and run an AntiVirus program. I would also suggest you run your Anti Malware software as well. One good measure to do before the scan is to turn off system restore as many viruses like to hide there because most anitvirus softwares cannot access those files. Try this and post back.

I have run Malwarebytes and SuperAntispy and both came back clean.

Can you please fully update both these programs, reboot and run a full system scan in
Normal Mode with Malwarebytes and Safe Mode with Superantispyware

Once done please let us see those reports

I would also suggest you leave System Restore enabled as, if a scan goes wrong etc you do have a Restore Point to go back to even if it is infected; if you turn System Restore off you will not have that option available to you
