Hi! I've had issues for the past few days with a virus - and I have finally discovered that it is XP Anti-Virus Protection. It causes me problems when I am online, new websites come up, and it also has a variety of warnings that pop-up.
I have done the following:
1 - run Malwarebytes virus scans - both full and quick, when that did not work I googled the virus online and found a forum with a combofix link.
2- after reading the forum the link to combofix sounded legit - so I clicked it, it started to run, and then asked me to rename the file - I clicked okay and it disappeared.
3- I googled combofix and found bleepingcomputer.com. After reading the guidelines for using combofix, I realized I should not have done what I did and now I would like some assistance please!
4- As recommended, I just did a back up of my files.
Thanks for your help! I am by no means a computer expert so please bear with me
