Hi!

I read some other posts here before posting, and it looks like I have the XP Security 2011 Virus. It is a major pain because when I open a browser on the computer, it has some phony "Security Warning" page that is attempting to redirect me. It also keeps giving me System Warnings about "Security Breaches," etc.

My brother has used these forums before, so I have some of the recommended programs installed on my infected computer. However, as seems to be the case with other people here, I am using another computer in the house to communicate on the forums.

I should be able to get information from there to here, and vice versa, no problem.

You guys have helped my family before - if you can help me it would be great!

Thank you so much!

Then come back and follow the instructions at http://www.geekstogo...uide-t2852.html
and post your OTL and Extras logs here in a reply (copy and paste - do not attach) and we will see if that got it all.
