Here are some things that are happening.
The main popup starts running a scan that finally says the following:
XP Antivirus 2012 - unregistered version
33 infections (with list of 33 infections malware, worms, etc...)
Firewall - OFF
Virus protection - OFF
I can open my Avast up and do a scan even though the Avast icon in my tray has a yellow ! marked in it, but in Avast the Real Time shield is turned OFF, and I am not being allowed to turn it ON.
When I try to open Malwarebytes, or Windows XP firewall I get an Avast security recommendation I get a popup box with this message:
File: C:/documents and settings/my name/...dty.exe
Open By: C:Windowsexplorer.exe
I have also read this popup somewhere:
WIN 32: ALUREON-AOWCRTK INFECTION
Any and all help would be deeply appreciated.
