XP Defender Malware

Recommended Posts

I have been unable to remove XP defender. I have downloaded the specific utility for removal from this site, but XP defender blocks it. I renamed it to mbam.com and was able to run the set up routine. However, XP Defender blocks the program from actually running. Same with Spyware doctor.

In Regedit, it seems like there were a lot of entries listed under the folder "Your Protection". I deleted the folder and still had no luck when I rebooted into safe mode.

Is there any free on-line removal tool that can remove this? I have not had much experience with the regedit function, so if there is a manual removal routine that is very detailed for idiots like, I could give that a try as well.

Is there anyway I can stop this program from running at startup so that I can run Mbam?

Does XP defender also prevent you from using the system restore? Because I have not been able to do a restore either.

Help please!
