    XP Antispyware 2012 virus?

      Hello,

       

      I recently installed McAfee on my desktop (windows XP) - because I was impressed with the protection I experienced on my laptop (windows vista) over the past two years.

       

      Today I got a virus (through email) I belive it might be called:  XP antispyware 2012.  It has lots of popups and has blocked my internet explorer.

       

      I have run McAfee quick scan twice - the first time it detected the virus and was not able to remove it, and suggested that I reboot and run the scan again, which I did.  The virus is still on my desktop.

       

      Can someone please help me with a way to remove this virus?

       

      Thank you,

       

      Phyllis Straub
