First I would like to know if there is any difference between the xp internet security virus and the home security 2012 virus. Second even in safe mode the virus pops up. It seems to start up as soon as windows does. It is also very aggressive. Bought a program with a registry fixer and it just isn't doing the job. How do you get rid of this nasty virus? Input would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, it is just an update to the older name changing rogue. I moved this to the Am I Infected forum.

Please follow our Removal Guide here Remove Win 7 Antispyware 2012 and Vista Antivirus 2012 name changing rogue (Uninstall Guide) .
After reading how the malware is misleading you ...
You will move to the Automated Removal Instructions

After you completed that, post your scan log here,let me know how things are.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Also the other tool log.. A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.
