I can't remove the Renos malware from my laptop. I have tried several steps already, not sure where to go from here:
I run Windows XP (up to date)
I have removed all programs I am unaware of.
I have deleted all temporary files, temporary internet files, and recycle bin.
I run Symantec AV (up to date)
I have Windows Defender which keeps alerting me of RENOS, Alert level high. Windows Defender cannot remove Renos.
I ran the McAffee Stinger with no success.

Can someone please help out?

Thanks

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "SAFE MODE".
(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions.

Then download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users.
If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.
