XP Security Centre Spoof - Trojan?

  jonno13x 14:25 21 Jul 08

A friend of mine has been infected with the above which is proving very difficult to remove. AVG and Spyware Doctoe dont see it. Symptoms are a popup warning of multiple infections, click here and pay etc. Googling brings up a website click here, which says that the spoof XP security Centre is malware and gives a link to a program which it says will remove it (setupxv.exe). Googling setupxv.exe says that this is malware.

Can anyone help please?

This is a pain in the derriere but I have found that using Superantispyware and then doing an online scan at Bitdefender, seems to cure it.

I should have said to run Superantispyware in safe mode for best results.
