I apologise if this is in the wrong place.
My machine runs with XP Pro.
I had an attack today by something called XP Home Security 2012.
After following the instructions in Bleeping Computer for removing
XP Home Security 2011, I now can't use the computer.
Everything that I click on comes up with a window that says "Open With",
"Choose the program you want to use to open this file:"
This includes Browsers, even games, I can't restore to an earlier date
When I try to open a program, I am told "Application not found"
My computer is "Acer Aspire T180-UB7Z" with Dual AMD 64 Processors
and 1 Gig Memory, running XP Pro.
I started in Safe Mode, run rkill, then Malwarebytes which found 10 infections,
these I removed and re-started the computer.
Any response will be appreciated.
