I can successfully manually end "av.exe" with task manager, but as soon as I try and run ANYTHING it starts itself up again.
I have searched through the registry the classic Xp antivirus pro registry keys are present,
nor does a search for the classic xpantiviruspro.dll files turn up anything.
This seems to be a brand new version of this infuriating malware.
p.s. I seem to have crippled it a little - the AV.EXE no longer runs automatically at fresh boot. I seem to get no abnormal behavior UNTIL I try to run firefox or any of my antivirus/antispyware/antimalware programs... then it does its false scans again...
