I am encountering a problem with my machine, its a windows XP. I had received an email and opened the email but suspected something amiss as I didn't know who this person was, so I didn't open the attachment. Normally such mails goes in the spam folder. After opening that email, I am having this problem, a pop up next to the windows system bar comes up and it says " Windows Security Alert. Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the scan of your computer. Your system might be at risk now" and then it opens up IE which is not my default browser and goes to a site called "http://avprocess.com/purchase?r=57.6" and after closing this browser, it also opens up an Antivirus Suite Demo called as "Antivirus Suite" and tries to perform a scan. I stopped the scan. Then again in the System bar it shows another pop-up which shows an "Infiltration Alert which says your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be password-stealing attack, a torjan- dropper or similar. and then it gives details like the IP address 18.104.22.168", and then it asks, "do you want to block it YES or NO" .
I ran SuperAntispyware and it showed couple of infected files. I removed them using SuperAntispyware, but still the computer was behaving abnormally. I then ran Malwarebytes AntiMalware in normal mode and it also showed infections. I removed them using the same software. Again, the next day I had the same problem when I accessed the internet. This time I ran Malwarebytes AntiMalware in Safe mode and the following was found " Trojan.fraudpack" with the Register key "HKEY_loc..Mc.../software/avsoft" and "Trojan.dropper" with the file location as "C:\docs...\admin\local\temp\e.exe". The infected items were removed and then working in the normal mode I am having the same problem. I cannot access any files in the system and even notepad, it says notepad.exe is infected. I would appreciate if you could help.
