Hi,

Somewhere along the way my IE picked this rotten XP Security 2011 up and it won't let go.

I have avast running now and it says it has picked up 3 thtreats so far (60%) in.

I have dome CC and it lists a lot of file after analyse BUT I don't want to click fix until the avast finishes.

I keep getti8ng the fake window shield in the tray but in Task Mgr see exe.exe and get rid of it everytime it pops up.

I want to run Malwarebytes but when I do I get the scam program.

My plan is to have avasat fix the threats it finds and then click fix for the registry stuff in CC.

Hopefully I will be able to run Malwarebytes then.

Any suggestions please?

Thanks


oz

Take a look at: Remove Vista Antimalware 2011 and Win 7 Antispyware 2011 name changing rogue (Uninstall Guide) as well as goes by 27 other names including XP Security 2011

Hi,

Thank you. That got rid of 23 items and MB took 10 hours to do a c:\ scan.

In task manager I still have a StkASv2K.exe and a ctfmon.exe but I am not sure whether they are okay.

MB says I am clean when I do it now.

Many thanks

Hello.

Two questions for you.

Do you have a webcam?

Do you have Microsoft Office installed?
