XP security virus help?
March 19, 2010 2:36 PM Subscribe
My Mom has an infected PC. I've been trying to debug it for an hour and a half now to no avail. It's apparently an updated version of the XP Security Center
virus. Problem is: it's prohibiting either Firefox or Explorer from opening, so I can't d/l anything.

I've tried the obvious solution of uninstalling program files, but it isn't showing there. She has an outdated version of McAfee Virus that came with her PC, but it's not working either. From what I can tell, the prompts it's spitting up are classic variations of the virus/malware, but I'm kind of lost now on what to do. If you could step-by-step me through this, I'd be most appreciative. I'd really like to move on with my life.
