Virus reappear / can't access antivirus site

Specs: Windows XP

I seem to be having a problem lately. I recently found out that I have received a couples of viruses including "msxslt3.exe". After removing them all using SDFix and Housecall, a couple of minutes later, I notice that either the same virus "msxslt3.exe" re-appears in my registry or some new virus such as "smss.exe" or "services.exe" is present in the registry.

I can't seem to manage to remove all my viruses once and for all without having the problem of them re-appearing each time I turn on my PC.

I'm also noticing that I cannot seem to access any anti-virus websites once these viruses appear on my PC.

Can someone help me solve this once and for all?

Scan your machine in safe mode using good Anti-virus system
> Turn on your machine
> When you see the first screen when your computer is booting, press the F8 key on the keyboard repeatedly until the screen changes to a black screen with white writing.
> Select "Safe Mode" from the list of options. This will take you to a desktop that looks very different from your regular desktop.
> Run the virus scan. When any virus worms are detected, place them in quarantine or delete them. If you are unsure what to do or what the virus is infecting, always select quarantine.
> After the virus scan, remove all the temporary files from your computer. For this you can take the help of "Ccleaner" application.
> Now reboot your machine and install repair using Windows XP CD.

Thank you :)

LOL....looks like pcs365_3
is copy and pasting in his ideas.

Malwarebytes is a great place to start. See if that removes your problem.
You may also want to run the FULLY functional trials of Hitman Pro and Trojan Remover.
When all is clean you can uninstall the latter.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
