Note under the Removal Tab Additional instructions for ME/XP users.
If it's reappearing it may be trapped in your restore points which are protected from virus scanners by Windows, therefore temporarily disable System Restore and it should be gone.
If that doesn't help download, update and scan using the free versions of these two tools:
Let them clean everything they find and if told to reboot to complete a removal, do it immediately.
Lastly, make sure that your XP is totally up to date with both critical and non-critical updates using Microsoft Update.
ok but it wont let me install them as it keeps shutting down and freezing up when i try to. it wont let me log onto the internet or anything. i did download them and put them on a usb device but i can not get in installed any other suggestions.
rename it to 123.exe and run it in safemode with networking and see if that helps
Ok thats not working either its telling me i dont have permission and then i did get one installed and that is the malwarebytes it freezes up at 2seconds scanned. Now what do I do?
i can get te malwarebytes to scan but then that pop up comes up and it reboots the system is there anything else i can do to fix my puter? im at a loss here i dont know what else to do. and what is the MS RSa Parser program? does anybody know?
And now I have tried to just abort it before the popup comes up to get rid of some of the spy ware but then it just shuts it down. I dont know what else to do please help
Sounds like a problem for a computer repair person to look at, do you have access to one?
ok i got it booted up in safe mode to whre i can run the malwarebytes program but when i try to install the other program even on my laptop it comes up with an error. does anyone have a suggestion for that program. this what error it gives me. error 1327 invalid driver F:\ and that is the program Super antispyware.
Did Malwarebytes manage to complete a scan? If so has it helped at all?
Don't worry about the other one if it wont install.
I still think this is something that someone physically should take a look at, i.e. a repair shop.
