I've downloaded Windows Defender Offline and booted my XP PC with it twice, but it hasn't rid me of Virus:DOS/Rovnix.W
The last time I tried it, I saw this:
Error code 0x800704ec This program is blocked by group policy.
I can't tell if the message is referring to the virus or to Windows Defender Offline. And although the "Remove" option appeared to clear it up, I ran Microsoft Security Essentials, which found Virus:DOS/Rovnix.W again, as it always does with a full scan.
I found nothing regarding Windows Defender Offline in my registry, but I didn't look everywhere.
I have also run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and two downloads from Kaspersky. Nothing has worked.
My goal now is to proceed through a step-by-step process of the type that I've seen here many times in my research. I would greatly appreciate any help! And let me know if I'm going about this correctly or incorrectly, please.
