1. I removed XP AntiSpyware by changing the mbam.exe to mbam.com
2. I restarted the computer. No pop-ups for about 10 hours.
3. When I restarted the computer today morning, the pop-up came back + it stops any .exe files (Firefox, Chrome) to open. So, the problem remains. I also hear a popping sound in the background (probably due to this XP antispyware virus)
4. Should I follow the advice given in this link?

Thank you very much. Your website is very useful. Thanks a lot.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I tried everything. I SEEM to have killed it by starting in safe mode(ONLY SAFE MODE) and then using system restore to roll back to a week ago. The damned thing can prevent any corrective measures unless you're in basic safe mode.
