Hello everyone,

I have a desktop with Windows XP Professional which is infected with Desktop Security 2010.
I have followed the following guide:
I have downloaded rkill and run it and it kills the Desktop Security 2010.
After that I updated and fully scanned with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and removed everything successfully but whenever I reboot the machine Desktop Security 2010 keeps coming back.
I've also tried removing everything with Spyware Doctor with Antivirus but same thing, whenever I reboot it keeps coming back.
Can someone help me out please?

Kind regards,

Check your Task Scheduler. My dad once had a malware that created a task that ran on every hour of every day, to run a file that had been hidden on the hard drive. Delete all of the Scheduled Tasks that you haven't created yourself, and delete any files that it references.

Hope that helps!
