I have xp pro
Got infected with "xp security tool 2010"
Ran Super AntiSpyware
Then Malwarebytes
After that didn't work I ran them again and added combifix
then rootrepeal.exe
then mgtools.exe

After that didn't work I went to try rkill.scr.
After doing that I was unable to run Malwarebytes.
It gave me "File does not have a program associated with it."
My other .exe programs can't be ran either. My browser won't open.

Not sure if I messed up or this is the virus working on me.
I appreciate your input.

I found a program "exefix_xp.com" and loaded it from a flash drive.
That took care of the problem opening programs.
I ran rkill again and malwarebytes after it with no sign of problems.
I am still getting my browser hijacked...
If I use that pc it will morph to the fullblown "xp security tool 2010"
Any ideas on that?
