Hi everybody.

So I have a windows xp and I was infected with Desktop Security 2010.
I used Rkill to terminate it a couple of times and then HiJackThis to stop it from starting at startup.

Whenever I run Malewarebytes' Anti-Maleware it usually says one of two things... 0 threats or sometime itll say like 17/40 threats. It varies. I clicked remove but they still show up.

Then I ran Spyware Terminator and it said 10 critical objects. I clicked remove and it was still there once I scanned again.

Okay so then I downloaded Spyware Doc. for the free scan and it says I have like 48 or so threats.
Attached I posted the scan details [sorry for the edit of the picture].

Please help.
I'm a really computer noob, I don't really know how to do much.
Hopefully you all can help.
Please I'm begging you.

Actually here is the link to the scan's outcome:

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1893608 you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
