I recently contracted a Virus/Trojan. I am running a Laptop with Windows XP Media Center Edition. My Virus Scan App is through McAfee...
The Trojan appeared as one of those Fake Anti-Virus programs. I used MBam (MalwareBytes) to attempt to clean the infection (ave.exe), but after the re-boot, any executable that I selected was deactivated. I received a Windows Pop-up asking me what application I wanted to open the file with... I was also receiving an Error Message that stated Windows couldn't find Rundll32....
MsConfig, Regedit, will not work under the damaged profile...
I did manage to create another Admin Profile on the Laptop and that, fortunately, is the only way I am able to use the Laptop. I would like to clean up the remnants of the Virus, as well as fix the damaged registry under my old profile. All of my files and apps were attached to that profile.
I have also tried Super Antispyware. Although that is working under the new profile, nothing has corrected the damage.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
