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!!!

C:\Program Files\RealArcade\Installer\bin\bstrapInstall.exe is infected with the Artemis!CEA1571C8923 virus!!!

Hello,

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:

http://deletemalware.blogspot.com/2011/06/remove-xp-antispyware-2012-xp-internet.html

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!
