XP Home Security 2012 - virus?

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

     Found the Artemis!6BA278C8623C trojan!!!

     Found the Artemis!CEA1571C8923 trojan!!!

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

2. Rkill (optional)

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!
