Hey, look who’s still around (and updated)! It’s our good ole rogue XP Home Security now full updated for 2011 and 2012. This version that I encountered disabled the customers Norton Antivirus 2010 and prevented them from loading any .exe or website.
Here’s how I quickly removed XP Home Security 2011 or 2012:
- Used RKill.scr (the .com .exe and .pif versions were killed by the rogue). Rkill.scr terminated the rogue.
- Installed Malwarebytes, updated, scanned and removed all items.
- Turned off proxy settings in internet explorer.
