Hi, Im going to explain this as quickly and direct as possible. Recently a classmate of mine got infected with the XP Antimalware virus, and we have so far been able to enable exe files. We have managed to move MBAM (Malwarebytes Anti Malware) and MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) over to the infected computer and have performed a scan with both programs (Removing a bunch of evil programs).

However I was wondering if the infection is completly removed or if there is still traces of the infection. As most of the infections today download other malicious programs and use themselves as a "distraction".

If you have any suggestions on how to know if the system is clear, please let me know.

Regards Leo :thumbsup:

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

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Please describe the issues you are experiencing with your computer.

regards, Elise
