How to Manually Remove XP Antivirus Pro

Ok I have been infected on my main computer (not this one I am posting on) with a virus called XP Antivirus Pro, I need detailed instructions of how to remove this virus from my computer, please no downloads, I have had it for a while, and nothing I do can get rid of it.  Please note it is blocking internet on the computer in almost every possible way, including when I change the Proxy settings on the Lan setup, and this is becoming a serious pain in the ass (sorry if cussing is not allowed).

So.......PLEASE HELP THIS MATTER IS ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL

Ryushi, you are going to need to download something eventually.  The best guide on the web is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-antivirus-xp-pro but scroll down that page, don't click the first links you see as they are all adverts.

Brit there is a reason I am asking for no downloads, the reason I am asking for none is that each require to be updated to rid the virus from my computer, I have tried Norton 360, Spyware Doctor, and Malwarebytes'  Anti-Malware, and Norton and Malware both scan but neither pick it up, and Spyware Doctor (I downloaded Doctor from a online download from a different computer, using a flash drive) and I have tried that, it did not help me.

MBAM can install, update and be run all in "Safe Mode with Networking".....tried that?

I've tried Safe mode with networking, but hardly anything is different, the virus still keeps me from the internet, at almost all costs, including through the update button on Malware.

Also please note Malware was already installed by the time this freakin virus came along.

Oh, that's too bad.  You could try one of our moderators Secured2k's BootCD, assuming you have access to a clean machine that can burn CDRW media.

Any questions on that should go in that thread.

Well, if it can be downloaded onto a flash drive to directly access this, then it should work, as I have a flash drive with me, if you know of any, please link it to me immediately.

Re: How to Manually Remove XP Antivirus Pro

For flash drive-based apps I'd have to do a lot of Google searching as I'm not familiar with any off the top of my head.  I'll keep looking.
