    Hello wise and generous Tech Support Guys.

    My computer is infected with (at least) the XP Security Tool 2010 virus. My OS is Windows XP Media Edition 2005 SP3. My anti-virus is/was Avast! home edition. Since discovering the infection I've downloaded and used the free editions of Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, and Super Anti-virus. While all of them have detected and removed infected files, the maddening popups nevertheless return in a day or so. And none of them have stopped the browser re-direction problem (which is exceptionally bad at sites like Google).

    My first thought was to do a System Restore, but it turns out Windows can't find a path to C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs. Windows firewall is disabled for the same reason. After trying to work around this for most of today and getting nowhere I've decided to ask for help.

    Well, I became a bit impatient and tried to do a repair install (which went badly awry :)). So I did a PC restore which reset my windows files back to their factory settings (while losing a lot of data). But after numerous updates and re-installing my backed-up files I'm pretty close to where I was before the virus, and multiple scans are showing no infections. The pop-ups and re-directs are gone, so for now I'm going to consider the issue resolved.

    I'm hoping I learned enough from hanging out here to prevent a similar disaster in the future. :)
