I somehow got a virus and its called XPSecurityInstaller. I checked my startup using msconfig and XPSecurityInstaller and braviax.exe keep running on startup even if i uncheck it and apply it. I tried using Ad-Aware, Spybot S & D, Avira Antivir, Registry Mechanic. I just cant seem to get rid of it. It says by my clock on my desktop "Your computer is infected", the yellow balloon comes up lik every 5 minutes. I found its registry values in regedit and deleted it. It also made a XPSecurityCenter folder in my C:\ProgramFiles\XPSecurityCenter\XPSecurityCenter.exe" /hide. Someone told me that this is a virus that tries to make you buy some anti-virus program that is supposedly supposed to get rid of the virus but doesn't and then your out $50. How do i get rid of this virus?
