Hello everyone - and a very Merry Christmas!
This year Santa brought me an extra-special "gift" in the form of XP Defender, which just popped up on my PC this morning and has effectively blocked me from doing anything. A Google search led me to your site, and for the past hour I have been trying - in vain - to install RKill via one of the links you have provided. So far, the four versions of the program that I have downloaded (rkill.com, .exe, .scr and uSeRiNiT) have all failed to run... When I click on "Run", the PC reboots before RKill can start up... and so I'm back to square 1 again. I will keep trying to download the other renamed versions of RKill, but in the meantime - would anyone have any suggestions???
My operating system is Windows XP Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.101209-1647: Service Pack 3.
In passing, I also tried running Spotmau Power Suite 2011 in safe mode, and it rates my PC's health at 95% (?!?!). I guess the malware is "invisible" in Safe Mode, or...?
Thank you in advance for any advice that you can give!
