Hello,

I recently got the XP Antivirus 2008 Virus, but managed to remove it's effects by deleting the dll files and prompting CCleaner to fix registry issues. However, i believe there are still traces of this virus on my computer or some other virus in operation
Some of the symptoms are:

Cannot run programs downloaded from the net. I receive the message: ..exe. is not a valid win32 application.

I cannot open Java related applications (Could not create the java virtual machine [no extra info is provided with this message]).

My windows firewall gets turned off every time i restart.

When I try and open a google search link, a separate window opens, redirecting me to go.google.com then to another random website. (usually porn).

I cannot add/remove programs in Control Panel.

One problem is you are running two or at least parts of two antivirus programs...Avast and AVG7. Since AVG has been replaced with AVG 8 I would advise that you UNINSTALL AVG completely. Also, for now, turn off Webroot Spysweeper as it is running in the background and along with the two running AV programs can interfere with removals of some types of spyware.
THEN go HERE and run the programs noted there including Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and be sure to allow it to fix or remove everything it finds and also run the ESET Online Scanner. Save logs from both. Then run a new scan with HJT and attach all three logs back here.

At the present time it is up to the poster as to which AV to use. Avast, which is an excellent program, is all ready on the system therefore it is advisable to leave it on there.
