I'm running windows XP and using firefox.
I recently removed security tool using some of the tips from this site, but I am still have a few computer issues. Rkill wouldn't stop security tool for me so I had to manually stop the process by opening the task manager just after booting and stopping the random numbered exe. After that I was able to run malwarebytes and that seemed to remove security tool. I noticed the browser issues stated in the topic description not long after this. So I ran malware bytes again and it picked up some more threats. I also ran viprerescue after the problem was still present, once again it picked up a couple of threats. I have also run spybot search and destroy, and it removed threats also. The problem was still there.
I have run malwarebytes and spybot a couple of times in safe mode (with networking) and it was still removing threats. The problem is still present.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
