I followed your suggestion to put FixNCR from clean computer on thumb drive and install on my infected PC. Your next step is to download RKILL.
XP HoSec 2012 does not allow access to your site for the RKILL download link. Is there a workaround?
Do I harm anything by running CCleaner? I look forward to your solutions.

Did you reset your browser before Downloading Rkill?

Why cant you just copy it to the PC via flash drive?

You can save rkill to the desktop and run it

Running ccleaner doesnot harm your PC unless you are infected by system fix rogue which saves the icons in temporary folders

Thank you. I didn't (still don't) know how to reset a browser.
What did finally work was ctrl-alt-del to bring up task manager then manually ending XP...2012 processes.
Malwarebytes has found and removed the trojans etc.
I have updated Avast.

Following instructions in another part of this site, I was able to remove a number of Trojans with Malwarebytes. I am afraid to start IE without a Firewall and am unable to turn it on through any of the usual locations. The message is: Windows cannot start the Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service. The detailed instructions on the Ms site are too technical for me to try alone. And I'm not sure the computer will let me download anything from their site anyway.
I have XP/Pro SP2. Intel PentiumII, 399Mz, 256 MB RAM. Dinosaur, I know, but it did what I needed until now and I can't afford to replace it. Oh. Avast for antivirus.
Very grateful for your help.

Another paste from OS - I'm sorry, I don't know how else to return to the topic here.

Well...I'm always dubious when members report that they have resolved their own malware problems...and I looked at your current topic in Am I Infected and it doesn't appear that any BC Staff person has given you the "all clear."

I suggest that you go back to that topic until one of the BC Staff has reviewed your topic.

Members who are not BC Staff...vary in knowledge and ability. Accepting suggestions from members is fine in this forum, but I would not suggest such when dealing with malware.

Louis

Louis,
Thank you. I completely get your point that there are consequences as a result of the Trojans, but was not aware that I was allowed to stay In the Malware Forum for follow up.

I followed the pinned instructions in Malware:

Remove XP Internet Security 2012 (Uninstall Guide)

How should I proceed, since the scans are coming out clean?

Would appreciate guidance.
