When using my wife's computer today (Windows XP Media Center Edition), I started to get the Windows XP Recovery. I followed the "Automated Removal Instructions for Windows XP Recovery using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" instructions at www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-windows-xp-recovery step-by-step (thru Step #19). Malwarebytes found 2 issues and removed them both. Everything seemed good until I restarted and the Windows XP Recovery issue started all over again. I ran rkill again and three error windows come up "Error. Installation Failed" and my only option is to click "OK". If I don't click anything, the three error windows go away and the black command prompt screen comes and it looks like it is trying to run, but then the bottom line reads "Access is denied". Then the rkill log opens up in Notepad. Then I run TDSSKiller and it comes back "no threats found". Any and all help to get this computer back to normal would be greatly appreciated. I've already been working on this for 3.5 hours and I'm ready to pull my hair out.
Thanks in advance,
