Question about Dell OptiPlex GX110 PC Desktop
Hi the symptoms of this are that the virtual memory shows up as being low, the task manager will not display when i press controll+alt+delete, the background has a permanent antivirus pop up and the program Antivirus XP 08 can not be deleted from Add or Remove Programs.
The infection that you have are rogue antivirus programs that, when run, display false results as a tactic to scare you into purchasing the software. Older versions of XP Antivirus would create 9 entries in your Windows Registry that impersonate infections on your machine. In reality, though, these registry entries were harmless and had absolutely no effect on your computer. Instead, these entries were set so that XP AntiVirus can find them when scanning your computer and report them as infections. The newer of versions of the program , such as XP Antivirus 2008 and XP Antivirus 2009, instead just display false results when scanning your computer that state infections were found. In order to remove these fake infections, though, you would first need to purchase the software as the trial does not allow you to remove them. To get rid of the infections you can goto:
