I have been struggling with a number of malware related problems on my PC as of late, the most recent of which being an error message that reads:

Virus Alert!
'Program' Can't Be Started

Following this are two lines about running what is likely a fake antivirus scan program, according to what I have read. I have used MBAM and it has alleviated some of my other problems, but this new one popped up immedietely after I eliminated some others. Any help I can get would be wonderful.

This is on a PC running Windows XP if that helps at all.

Additionally, I have long suffered from annoying redirected links from Google and would appreciate any help in this category that I can get. Thanks very much!

Hello,it appears you have this infection.

Please follow our Removal Guide here Remove AntiVira Av (Uninstall Guide) .
You will move to the Automated Removal Instructions

After you completed that, post your scan log here,let me know how things are.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
