I'm running XP Pro with McAfee and Adaware. Today I got a virus from a YouTube file.

I keep getting an Internet Explorer window telling me that the computer is infected. The cancel button is disabled.

I have run a McAfee and Adware scan.

Adaware found and deleted several objects. McAfee found nothing.

Windows update does not work while looking for the programs installed on my computer it encounters a problem and stops.

What now?

Additional information. The virus came through a link in FaceBook.

I can't access this site on the infected PC. I am not able to update any of the anti-virus or spyware software. This includes Maiwarebytes which I am running now.

Have to use a second uninfected PC to communicate with this site

Malwarebytes found 9 items and successfully deleted.

Rebooted as directed by Malwarebytes.

Still can't update the malwarebytes data.
