My laptop running old WIndows XP is being viciously attacked by sltpfektssd.exe? and others. It appears as a legit pop-up to start an anti-virus program that I have never seen before. Eventually different pop-ups and fake programs start running, so there is a scheduling component. It tries to get on the internet so I have my lap top's wifi turned-off and took it out of my router's setup (reserved IP, allowed mac-addr for the wifi, etc.)
If it is allowed to get started off of a reboot or logon, it will constantly block starting any program with a pop-up that it is infected. So you have to quickly bring up the task manager and keep it open to kill unknown processes and processes with legit names - but are bogus (jupdater.exe, jusched.exe, wmiprvse.exe to name a few.
Does this sound familiar and does anyone have experience in cleaning this up?
I have surfed for some info that has gotten me to the point that I was able to get my Norton to scan, unfortunately, it cannot get its live updates.
