Hi there,

Have recently had to reinstall windows XP and after doing so ran Malwarebytes and came up with the malware in the topic title. Just wanted some advice on how best to ensure it is removed and that nothing else is lurking around in the background.

Welcome to the forum.

Can you post the log from Malwarebytes showing the infection.

and also.......

Please remove any usb or external drives from the computer before you run this scan!

Please download and run RogueKiller 32 Bit to your desktop.

RogueKiller 64 Bit <---use this one for 64 bit systems

Quit all running programs.

For Windows XP, double-click to start.

For Vista or Windows 7-8, do a right-click on the program, select Run as Administrator to start, & when prompted Allow to run.

Click Scan to scan the system.

When the scan completes > Close out the program > Don't Fix anything!

Don't run any other options, they're not all bad!!!!!!!

Post back the report which should be located on your desktop.

(please don't put logs in code or quotes)

You're talking about the P2P warning, that doesn't apply to you...it's just a general warning I give to everyone if they do any P2P programs installed.


You can have Malwarebytes fix that entry, It's just a "Potentially Unwanted Modification".

I just checked my XP system and it's not even listed....nothing to worry about.

You may have to set Malwarebytes to fix by.......

Open up Malwarebytes > Settings Tab > Scanner Settings > Under action for PUM > Select Show in Results List and Check for removal.


Windows XP (5.1.2600 Service Pack 2) 32 bits version

Make sure you visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 3 to be fully protected.
