I removed that link in your post, do not post link to sites that tell users to download a programme to remove a rogue programme, only to be told they need to purchase the full version to remove, that site is an affilate of one of those paid programs.
Follow instructions in this post, ignore the ads at the top.
Thanks to paullotion for his excellent advice! I followed his instructions, downloaded and ran STOPzilla, which promptly detected and flagged not only the "Xp AntiMalware 2010" virus, but other infections which had so far eluded McAffee. After subscribing to STOPzilla, there are no longer any signs of any infections!
I'm assuming that McAfee is working out a fix for this problem.

Was also infected with XP Antimalware 2010 on Wed 03/31/10.
Had the latest McAfee Update installed which found and quarantined AVE.EXE & a couple of other files.
While my Desktop Internet Shortcut was restored to proper functioning, McAfee did not correct the corrupted Registry Entries for EXE files which were set to run AVE.EXE.
I downloaded a free zipped Reg file from www.DougKnox.com which restored EXE file settings to proper defaults.
However, the Internet Explorer Icon from the Start Menu now does not work - you get a File Association prompt - looks like something still needs to be fixed.
Hope someone from McAfee is listening...
Let's hope so...
