Antivirus2009 infection and re-infected again

  Fried~Chips 14:20 28 Aug 2008

Recently had machine infected with this infection which comes with fake malware & Spyware & viruses calling itself Antivirus2009 & previously calling itself antivirus XP, Vista, 2007 & 2008.

Ok, had WinXP Clean installed and installed with SP3 all new updates like IE7, Media player etc, running kaspersky internet security on AOL software version 9vr.

This infection even after having windows SP3 installed clean has become infected around a week after repair. Family member has not downloaded any software other than microsoft windows updates, Java & Adobe.

Could anyone sugest how this infection can get back into the system please. Router is a netgear but not wireless.

backdoor.win32.frauder.bin is part of the XP antivirus

Make sure systm restore is switched off and
Use superanntispware to get rid of it all.

when remove then scan again if gone the second time then switch system restore back on.

The HDD on the machine is 2 partitions showing, do I disable the system restore on the main C drive or on both including the Back-up drive D ?
Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\
