fake xp internet security virus

March 22, 2010 at 18:49:42
Specs: Windows XP home edition SP3
I need some help getting rid of a virus, probably just scareware, which has infected my other computer and is trying to force me into downloading what it wants me to down load, its the same problem to an older post that said "I recently picked up a vrius of some kind that affected windows XP security. Messages in my tray box kept popping up saying things like:- 'System hijack!', 'Security breach!', System danger!', Tracking software found!' and 'Stealth intrusion!'. A box also pops up saying my pc is infected with 'Trojan-BNK.win32.keylogger.gen'. It then runs a scan and prompts me to purchase a version of XP security Center."
some help would be great

A box also pops up saying my pc is infected with 'Trojan-BNK.win32.keylogger.gen'.

if you didn't use a rootkit remover I would say you are still infected. Keyloggers are near to impossible to remove.

I wouldn't do any online banking or using your CC for purchases online untill that is fully removed
