I recently started to receive pop-ups on my PC. I'm running Windows XP, and through some research discovered that they are most likely caused by XP Anti-Spyware 2011. On my computer, it is named XP Total Security 2011.
I found the uninstall guide on your website (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-win-7-internet-security-2011) and have made it through downloading FixNCR.reg. I double clicked on it and it said it had been merged with the current registry. I tried to download RKill (the next step), and was unable to do so, regardless of where I try to do it from. The message says "Virus Download Blocked // Download of the virus has been blocked in accordance with company policy. Please contact your system administrator if you believe this is in error. // File name: rkill.com"
Another thing of note - i'm doing all of my downloads etc. on the infected computer as I don't have access to another computer. I'm using Firefox as an administrator (this worked successfully for downloading FixNCR.reg).
My question is, how do I successfully download RKill and/or anything else that may aid in removing this virus?
In addition, I've also been redirected several times from Google searches (I believe to search.com) - is this another virus?
Thanks in advance!
