So, I have this potential spyware fake anti-virus on my computer named "XP Security 2012 Firewall Alert". When I open up Browsers, it gives me a message saying that the program could potentially give me viruses, and when I open up Malware Bytes, it displays a fake scan instead. When I check via ctrl+alt+delete, it is "gox.exe" as a process.
I am not sure how I got this spyware, but perhaps it was a possible rootkit in my computer, as I have a Google+Bing redirect rootkit, and I also had some mysterious virus in my laptop that randomly opening up internet explorer in the background. Very bothersome.
I would post this into logs, but I can't actually GET a Malwarebytes Log out of my laptop given how this annoying malware shows up whenever I open up Malwarebytes. Very annoying.
