thats a link to a freeware Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool

The Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool is a free application was designed to be another virus scanner and detection software from Kaspersky. The product will scan the specified locations for any virus threats and remove them or send to Quarantine folder.

be advised that most of the people telling you to contact them to buy kaspersky are more likely than not trying to sell you pirated versions with licences that will be blaclklisted sooner or later

You have to re install, you OS.

But first Format the drive before installation.

back up all your files

then download any/all of the following apps

spyware doctor starter edition

spyware blaster

superantispyware

spybot search and destroy

spyware terminator

they are all free and highly effective tools

you can get them at www.majorgeeks.com

most antispyware gwebsites typically recommend that you do the following when trying to remove spyware from your system:

disconnect from the net

boot into safemode then install and run different apps one after the other

what is on your sysetm is referred to as rogueantispyware - which is the internet version of the peeps in naija that say they can cure aids ( for a fee , of course)

if you google 'securepccleaner' you may find instructions on how to get rid of it - okay i just did that.

http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=securepccleaner&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

see how easy that was? now check out those links. someone has almost defintely  hacked together a tool for removing the malware.

cheers.

it is either a virus or you are using a cracked version of Windows XP.

change your anti virus or install the genuine copy of Win XP
