Hello all! I am posting on the site, I am sure this topic will be bumped to another location. I have been hit by the XP TOTAL SECURIRTY 2011 rogue virus. I have gone between safemode with networking, to normal boot. Have run Malwarebytes multiple times, each time it finds 9 infected files. i quarantine them, go to reboot in normal operation - now my executables won't load. I then go back in to safemode, and safemode is infected now. attempting to run combifix from reading a post from m0le. any other suggestions?

@10:45pm, attempting to disable AVG so I can attempt to run combifix.. but no luck.

@11:30 pm, followed the prep guide. will post tomorrow my logs.

I may not be an expert as the others but I can give you some suggestions.
I'm assuming you have Windows XP.
Did you follow this step here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-win-7-internet-security-2011
As for the .exe issue you had, you may try to download this fix found here: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic395309.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
