Infected with malware and doesn't go away

Recommended Posts

problem #1: So a couple of days ago, I got infected with the XP Security 2012 virus and it kept making Windows Security Alerts "alert" me to buy the XP Security 2012 and I couldn't get Malwarebytes to delete it (it only found it and "quarantined and deleted" it and it showed up again on the next scan) so I just followed the path in the scan results and deleted the virus myself in the Applications and Settings folder. Now, the virus is presumably gone from the computer, but the Windows Security Alerts ballon and icon keeps popping up on the windows toolbar and telling me that Automatic Updates are off (when in reality, are on). Malwarebytes doesn't pick this up at all.

problem #2: I'm not sure if this problem relates to the XP security 2012, but I also have this log:

Registry Keys Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_RPCSS32 (Trojan.Tracur) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

^The problem is that Malwarebytes repeatedly finds this and "deletes" it and upon the next restart, scans it again and finds it. I don't understand why it keeps finding it over and over and "removing" it.

Thanks in advance! :)
