Solved how do i remove win32:renos virus

Specs: Windows XP
Avast (free version) picked up the win32:renos virus during a scan, I deleted it. I suspect it is still in my pc, because it is running weird, like slower, moved my avast and super-antispyware icons around on my tool bar, when I try to access the web my web page (google chrome) keeps comeming up as a "new tab" page now amongst a few other strange things. I ran a scan with super-antispyware it picked up over 30000 items that weren't cookies, but I discontinuied the scan because it seem to have stopped but the timer was still running. Please help. I am not real PC savy I need detailed as possible instructions. I thank you in advance for your time.

This has always been a problem with malware and rootkits. You can't tell the state of the OS easily.

I suggest you reload the entire system from known good OEM media. Get a good security suite on it. Apply all service packs and learn to use as many best practices as you can to avoid this. Be extra careful with any usb media or any networked files locally as they all could contain malware. Using a limited user account at all times may have prevented this.

Hang up and live.

I am sorry for not responding sooner, we had death in the family. I want to thank the person that replied with the "Malware Removal Guide for Windows", it was very helpful, my PC is running faster my security scans run faster, I removed so much cluter, this is a great tool. The instructions were easy to follow for anyone who is not very knowlegeable about computers like myself. Please keep this forum going, and to the WONDERFUL MEMBERS who try to help those of use less knowlegeable, THANK YOU for devoting your precious time to these type of sites, and to the IDIOTS who are so miserable they waste there lives writing viruses, use your talents to better the internet, stop wasting the short time you have in this world, anyone with half a brain can be destructive.
