Under massive malware/spyware/trojan attack

Recommended Posts

Alright so it all started with a program called "XP Antispyware 2010" running fake scans and giving me false alerts and the like. I knew it was obviously a virus so I tried to first run rkill.exe which I'd previously used in the past to kill all malware apps running so that I can then run malwarebytes scan. I'm pretty sure though that there are several other (who knows how many) malware programs at work though, because I have something keep popping up trying to direct me to porno.com and porno.org (my antivirus blocks both automatically).

Anyways, the virus(es) are making it impossible for me to open/run ANY program, including rkill.exe and malwarebytes to run a scan so I'm kinda... toast? Right now I'm running my AV scan (thankfully it still let me do that). My AV program is Eset NOD32 Antivirus and it's running but taking effin' forever.

I'm typing all this form another computer, like I said, I'm unable to open/run any programs except for windows explorer and my nod32 (which was already open by default and blocked some of the attacks but not all of them). I have no idea what started this, all I was doing was checking my gmail and facebook accounts. Right before it happened though a "windows cleanup" thing appeared to get rid of icons on my desktop I never used and I ran that but I'm pretty sure that was legit because it's come up before automatically.

I'm running Windows XP media center. Thanks for any help.
