Help Malwarebytes won't install, I'm infected

Recommended Posts

Hello I've recently discovered I have been infected by xp total security 2011, which i believe has installed other malware and constantly opens up a pop up that looks like Windows security center. Whenever i click on the install exe for malwarebytes xkv.exe loads up (as seen in windows task manager) and the pop up comes up regardless. Basically yesterday i installed Microsoft security essentials on the computer and it runs a lot faster.(MSE detected and removed the following Win32/PowerRegScheduler, TrojanDropper:win32/Dunik!rts, Trojan:win32/Embhit.c, Worm:win32/Autorun.SW, Trojan:win32/Provis!rts, Trojan:win32/Embhit.c....everything is repeated twice for the 2 scans i performed)

I'm new to the forum so I'm sorry i didn't post relevant data, logs etc. I felt it was important to mention the computer is running Windows xp home edition version 2002 sp3, the computer has other AV software that hasn't been uninstalled, Java is outdated, the computer is currently disconnected from the router that it is usually wired to.

Thank you for your time and I really appreciate the help

- Jay
