K. Grey
Thanks fot the helpful information, however I found that my harmful process was named under lrl.exe
After removing this malware with malwarebytes, my internet explorer, outlook express, nor windows explorer work. Did I not catch everything or is there something else I need to do?
use combofix and then malwarebyres anti malware. That took care of my problem
The process name varies and will appear in the registry key(s). Mine was uyn.exe
I can verify Jason and K. Greys comments about the variety of the process name, on my Dads computer it was called rlm.exe. Fortunately the file name always seems to be always three letters long, once I identified it I was able to remove it.
When I got this it used tnj.exe not instead of kdn.exe
"C:Documents and Settings...Local SettingsApplication Datatnj.exe" -a "C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe"
Hi Dummies
Just go to an earlier restore point, shut down and restart and make an new restore point. After restart delete all previouse restore points and let malware check your system.
And done wiyh that

We are trying to delete the XP Security 2012 malware program using MalwareBytes, but we cannot actually load the MalwareBytes software. We have successfully downloaded the install .exe file for MalwareBytes, but whenever we try to run it. XP Security 2012 software blocks the install program from launching. Does anyone know how to get past this or have other suggestion?
I did everything listed here and ran multiple anti-malware scanners, but it wont go away! I had to give it a fake product key so its not doing anything harmful right now, but I want it gone!
My virus file was called orw.exe, but it can have many names.

Im no expert, but... Open your task manager and watch the processes.

Now open IE or Firefox and watch for a new process to show up when security center runs. That will be the file you search for and delete at the end of all this.
Followed the instructions... other than the obvious .exe filename difference, it worked!

Once I was able to determine the process name, I simply killed the process, dumped the offending files into another folder, deleted them, and was able to run MalwareBytes afterward. It all seems to be working now... thanks!
My computer wont let me restore it to an earlier time and the xp security virus wont let me get on the internet to fix it! Ive tried to delete the files but its took over my computer and wont even let me open files!! Gonna have to completely wipe my hard drive!! :( Get it off asap people!!
Use CTRL - SHIFT - ESC right after log in to bring up Task Manager. Then kill the process thats bringing up the window. Mine was named csc.exe. Once youve killed the process,. you can do the manual stuff above, but I also run Malwarebytes (Free) for a full scan to get rid of it.
Start in safe mode (F8 on boot) then install Malewarebytest. perform a complete scan to clean your system.
how to remove xp security 2012
in the past killing the process has been effective, but this time it just restarts automatically. Started in safe mode, but malwarebytes wont run, the stupid malware just starts again. Tried reinstalling malware bytes, but same reaction....what to do?
1. Running Malwarebytes :

The so called virus in this case blocks all .exe files to be executed hence ;
first rename the setup file to .bat extension and then the setup will run so you can install it.

Once installed again the .exe file in C:/Program Files/.../Malwarebtes Antimalware.exe will not work so again rename that to .bat extension and then run the application.

This time it will work and then do the full scan and it will be cleaned.

2. Other alternative Solution is running Kaspersly Virus Removal Tool in safe mode

3. Another Alternative[Ultimate last resort ] Kaspersky Rescue Disk
found instructions to work but mine was installed as ivh.exe
I had do kill gju.exe proces.
Hi, my application name of XP Security 2012 was rsp.exe.
