This virus or malware seems to keep launching against my XP Pro computer. I went in to safe mode, to try and run malwarebytes and flush it out; but my IE application seems to launch it.

I can usually handle the occasional attack on my own, but for this one I'm in your hands. Thanks.

Take a look here: Remove XP Anti-Spyware 2011, Vista Security 2011, and Win 7 Internet Security 2011 (Uninstall Guide), as well as 30 plus other names this breed of malware goes by.

OK; I've run the registry fix, eXplorer.exe, and then 3 rounds of malwarebytes, until my scan was finally clear. Should that be the end of it?
