XP Antivirus 2008 is a Trojan!

I had surfing the net when a red alert in Tray menu started to appear. It read Windows Seciruty has to be updated.

It offered me a site with “XP Antivirus 2008”

As I tought it is Microsoft security center alert, entered the site  http://s c a n n e r . a n v i-s c a n n e r . c o m / 3 4 /? a d v i d  =  0 0 0 0 0 0 4 6 8 3 & H T T &  /Attention – better do not try to open/

When I saw the fake system scanning and $20 price to “clean my system” I quickly left but was too late.

Then Avira Antivir  started to alert about viruses detected. The computer became very slow.

I restarted in Safe Mode /F8/ and  ran Spyware Doctor – it found more than 20 viruses and 30 infected files. Spyware Doctor cleaned them. I had disabled System Restore in advance. /Important!/

Then ran Avira Antivir again and cleaned  17 trojans.

Open Task manager /alt+ctrl+del/ and stop the following processes:


Then Remove following XP Antivirus 2008 Registry Values:
