Virus Emerged as XP Total Security now Window

Recently, I by accident let in a virus named itself XP Total Security. I am using Windows XP and also using Microsoft Security Essentials for Protection. After using a different computer to seek Bleeping Computer Forums, I downloaded RKill and Malware bytes. And scan the whole system several times. Malware bytes look as it removes the virus but when I restart the system it?s appear again, but every time with a different name. Now it had affected Windows Security Alerts. It also hijacked my browser and not allowing me to do usual searches in my any web browsers.

Now I had done with all what can I do, and do not know what else to try further. Now I don?t know about the Virus , And Now it also creating troubles for Offline work too, even as working on documents in Word or Excel, my PC get freeze and to start working again on it, the only ways is to restart the system, I had already tried out the AVG and Norton, even after detection and removal of Trojans virus, I am still facing the very massive problems, Many times I cannot able to logon on internet and after that when I tried to use system recovery , Its either doesn?t open or some message appears that says system recovery cannot help out . Please help me out to find possible solution of this problem. Thanks in advance.

To assist you, I must make a analytic and to do so, I require a keep log, Priory download ZHPDiag.exe from Internet, which is freely available, And then install it on your system, after installation a icon will appear on your desktop, double click on ZHP Diag.exe. and follow the instructions. The installation will create two icons on your desktop (ZHPDiag and ZHPFix) First double click on ZHPDiag on your desktop, a new window will appear, where you can see magnifying image, click on it and analysis will carry out. It might take long time to finished but must wait till it get finished , Now close ZHPDiag .Now Search the directory where you have installed ZHPDiag, usually it get installed at ( C:\Program Files\ZHPDiag ), select the file ZHPDiag.txt. and upload it on Rapidshare and Paste the link here . further on the report will find out the solution.

Here the logs shows the following infections: FakeAlert, BT, Rogue, Rootkit, spyware, adware. Your system roughly infected to the point we would need to run numerous tools and have to do operations in the registry . I will suggest you a very powerful Anti tool , that will able to cure and heal any virus and neutral its effects on your system. It is used at last level and I should recommend you to uninstall it from your system, As it used.

Re: Virus Emerged as XP Total Security now Window

To keep your Data safe You must go through accord to the instruction :Boot your system in safe mode with networking, Now download Combofix from your internet and installed it on your system, close all windows , this one also. Disable all running Antivirus, Anti spyware and firewalls programs as they might create an obstacle while the process. Double click on the ComboFix icon; Windows is issuing this prompt because ComboFix doesn?t have a digital signature. This is completely normal and secure and you can click on the Run button to continue, Now accept the disclaimer and recover. Now Press Yes button to continue.

Ultimately, a new screen will appear that states the program is almost finished and stating you the programs log file, or report, will be located at (C:\ComboFix.txt.), During the process, please avoid pressing any button either of mouse or keyboard, let the tool complete it process without any interference, Reboot the system and create a new restore point which you can make with any name. This way you will come to know that it's a safe way to return to in case of problems. Once you are done with it, tell me here only about how your system is reacting.

And If at any time during the Recovery Console installation you get a message showing that it failed to install, Allow Combofix to continue with the scanning of computer, As the program is running and scanning your system, it will change your clock settings, so don?t be worry about if it?s happened, Meanwhile you will also get disconnect from internet, the window desktop will also disappear, as its normal and the whole program will get recover and restore at the end or completion of process and will apply automatic previous setting.

Install Rkill and run it on your desktop, you must have to neutral all virus running process and preventing you to install any antivirus, if will don?t do it, it will keep on reproducing new files for ever till it is not cure. After installation you can see a window including Rkill, Double click On Rkill in order to involuntarily attempt to stop any processes associated with the Rogue programs. Please be patient while the program search for different malware programs and ends them. When it will finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step.

Re: Virus Emerged as XP Total Security now Window

If you receive a message that Rkill is an infection, do not be afraid. This message is just a false warning given by the Horse at the time its terminating programs that may potentially remove it. If you had get into such warning and closed the Rkill, the trick is to keep the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the notice, this usually will allow you to bypass the malware trying to protect itself so that Rkill can finish the processes. So, please try running Rkill until malware is no longer running. Please, Do Not Restart your computer or the processes will affect your system again.
