A friend dropped by with their Toshiba laptop telling me it has a virus. I booted it up & was greeted with the XP Antispyware 2012. NOT knowing if they had already scanned or tried to scan with it, I google it & got these links http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/anti-virus/rkill http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-xp-antispyware-2012 NOT in chronological order (sorry) I did use the FixNCR.reg & the Rkill.com & ran my Mbam scans. UNfortunatly those scan results have been removed. I gave up on it till this morning (01/01/12 ) when I tried the " iExplore.exe download link. & then I ran a quick scan with Mbam again & it came up clean so I did a full scan & it too was clean. I also ran SAS full scan & it was clean as was my Eset scan. However, upon rebooting I still get a bubble telling me the Automatic Updates is turned off,Click balloon to fix it but I go into check it out & its turned on. I'm hoping I haven't messed up anything. TIA for any help.
