Antivirus 2009/Onlinescan/Morphing Trojans

by Jradamsinc / February 9, 2009 8:46 AM PST

I keep getting this warning that my computer is infected, click here etc which then goes to an www.AntiVirus2009 site on IE.It now goes to On Line Scan which is the same as Antivirus 2009. I use Firefox. After a scan with AntiVir it comes up with
Tr Down loader.Gen
It then morphed to this or added it I should say
Tr/Agent z.od.88
It then morphed again today to
I went to Major Geeks and they said to use the Avenger with "XYZ"\peripherals.
I ran Malware Bytes and I still have it. One forum said to look for av2009.exe but it is no where to be found. It keeps popping up and then opening IE going to www.onlinescan.com
I have Windows XP SP2 on a dell computer.
What can I do with this morphing Trojan?

A Google search shows:

Allinone-scanner.com is so called online scanner of so called antivirus ?Antivirus 2009?.

McAfee SiteAdvisor shows a green link, so it should be safe:

The Superantivirus basically worked although I had to scan a number of times and disable system restore. I also ran Malwarebytes as well. It has seemed to remove 99% of it although one of the other users still had a pop up last night. I'll keep scanning but this is by far the closest thing I have used to alleviate the problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
