I seem to have a recurring infection of XP Security 2012. I first started a week ago with a messed up machine. I had ping.exe running as a service, I had a browser hijacker that I think was called "get-results-fast." Any url was hijacked to a pseudo search site with ads. At the same time I got an XP Security 2012 infection. I first just went to task manager and ended any odd looking processes, which killed the hijacker. Then through asearch, I found this site, downloaded rkill.exe, tdss.exe, and ccleaner. I ran all of them and without reboooting ran malwarebytes anti-malware. that all did the trick, everything was fine and normal. About 24 hours later, XP Security 2012 was back. I went to task manager, killed three letter processes, ran rkill.exe and anti-malware. Everything was fine. This keeps happening daily. Some days the infection starts when my AV finds and quarantines a trojan (TR/Fake.Rean4562 or TR/Dldr.Tracur.AH.249). Getting my pc to run normally is relatively easy and quick, but it sure is strange and it happens each evening. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
