Received this fake XP security center virus. I new it was fake, so I tried to
get out of it. It popped up all the time, then I was able to download windows
security essentials. Prior to this I had tried to update AVG, SPYBOT and Malwarebytes.
None of these worked. The Security Essential found it, and removed it, but not the
av.exe file that was still lurking. So, the problem popped up again, and this time
it would not allow me to access programs. The window message kept telling me
that there was no access path, or I did not have access. I checked to see if I was
not in my admin user, and I wasn't - but I am locked out of that too.
I was able to get into safe mode. Oh - I tried to download HJT and it too would not
allow me to do it unless I was in safe mode = I returned later, it then it would
not allow me to run it straight out because it kept asking me (other programs too)
what program I wanted to run it with. I was able to circumvent that, and get it done.
I also noted (and deleted) in my network places two places I had not added to
a unrecognizable university.
Help me please. For everything I do to gain, something else just finds a way to block
Thank you very much. Cyber
