I am running xp home with service pk3. Christmas day got hit with Antivirus 2012, I wasn't here when it happend but other ppl were using this computer. I had to abandoned my user name and had to resort to an old one as nothing would open under my name. If I clicked on any shortcuts it prompeted me to choose a program to open it with, and if I went to anything on the internet I get redirected elsewhere. I have Panda cloud and ran that, 16 neutralized, 2 were not. Also got a free trial to Malwarebytes and did a flash scan, it fixed a bunch of stuff, then did a full scan and found nothing. ping.exe is running and eating up power, if I stop it in task manager, it comes back in about 2 min. Malwarebytes also keeps blocking 3 diff. websites. I still can't use my username. Let me know if you need any more info as I am an amature when it comes to this stuff. Thanks!!!!
