Hi folks.
I have gotten infected once again. It keeps coming up with windows security alert and then something that says antivirus system pro alert and then spyware alert.
Also it keep taking me to [bleep] sites.

I am not able to open either malwarebytes, or superantispyware.

Hopefully you folks can help me. I'm running windows xp pro.

Ok, first, thank you for all the help. I was able to finally get into safe mode and run my antivirus programs and that seemed to have done the trick.

If anyone has any other suggestions or any follow-ups, please feel free to instruct me as to what to do.

Again, thank you for any and all help for past, present and future.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
