virus called "XP Anti-virus 2011"


Recommended Posts

I somehow picked up this virus yesterday, I think.

The biggest problem I am having right now is that I can't open any programs or install the Malwarebytes program that many people are recommending to rid of it.

When I attempt to install it (or open any program) a window pops up asking me to choose a program to open it with. Has anyone seen a problem similar to this and have a solution for solving it?

Any help with this would greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post DDS.txt directly into your reply.

  • Download the file TDSSKiller.zip and extract it into a folder on the infected PC.
  • Execute the file TDSSKiller.exe by double-clicking on it.
  • Wait for the scan and disinfection process to be over.
  • When its work is over, the utility prompts for a reboot to complete the disinfection.

By default, the utility outputs runtime log into the system disk root directory (the disk where the operating system is installed, C:\ as a rule).

The log is like UtilityName.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.

for example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.2.0_20.12.2009_15.31.43_log.txt.

Please post that log here.
