I have a rogue antivirus program on my computer.  It is called Windows XP Antispyware 2011.
I have tried to remove it using safe mode and malwarebytes antimalware.  This did not work.
This infection disables all of my programs including internet explorer in both regular mode and safe mode.  What can I do to remove it?

    Follow exactly what this tutorial says... which is to use the FixNCR.reg, then the RKill, and then a quick scan of MalwareBytes.

    Did you use the renamed RKill?
    You might also need to renamed MalwareBytes as well.

    Use Kaspersky cleanautorun first if you can't run any programs.
