and I didn't see anything that was overly incorrect, but I would have these comments;
1] I assume this was a test rig because there was no anti-virus installed either at the beginning of the video or at the end. Or rather, at the end his Security Center showed that 'he' was monitoring his own anti-virus. Did he have any?
2] He seemed to miss selecting one of the threats discovered by MABAM, (the top one), when he selected to remove them.
3] He never showed us his applications working at the end of the video.
So I am not sure his method would ever have worked.
Tell us what anti-virus you have and what firewall.
Did you run MBAM? That isn't clear from your post as you say, "so i can run my malwarebytes-anti-malware program."
Are you sure that shield icon in the Notification Area is not XP's own Security Center shield telling you that your firewall and/or anti-virus is off?
If you still have this XP Antispyware 2012 malware then it is likely you are going to have to do more to completely remove it and so you may need to follow the steps giving in the BleepingComputer forum thread here;
