I have the XP Home Security trojan on my computer.
I run the Stinger Scan in Safe mode and I scanned the C drive.
No messages when I scanned the C drive.
These messagges were generated from STinger:
C:\Documents and Settings\Chris Choate\Local Settiings\Temp\jar_cache2688603448033080620.tmp

C:\Program Files\RealArcade\Installer\bin\bstrapInstall.exe is infected with the Artemis!CEA1571C8923 virus!!!
What can I do to remove these viruses?
I suppose you could remove it using Stinger. Or you can use Malwarebytes Antimalware, SUPERAntispyware or Hitman Pro to remove XP Home Security 2012 malware. Detailed removal instructions:
If you have a clean computer, you should go with the first link. And if you don't, follow the second one.
Tools need to remove the rogue application.
1. FixNCR.reg http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/reg/FixNCR.reg
2. Rkill (optional) http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/anti-virus/rkill
3. Malwarebytes Antimalware, SUPERAntispyware, Hitman Pro or any other anti-malware software.
Note: if you got a box saying "which program do you want to use to open this file", please run FixNCR.reg.
Good luck!Message was edited by: techrumy on 6/19/11 10:39:28 AM CDT
