My daughter's computer was infected with XP security Center which she claims happened when she was using google.
I was able to launch and run Malwarebytes' anti malware from a flash drive.
Had to run a full scan at least 5 times to finally remove it.
All this time the JIT debugger message kept popping up.
I went to google to search the JIT debugger; found the microsoft entry, (rightclicked on the link to it was microsoft) opened the link and XP Defender appeared all over the screen.
What do I do now?
