How to remove AV Security Suite?

If I turn on the computer, soon as XP loads, a likeness of Windows (red) Security says I might be infected and starts a scan w/out my approval (like a Trojan/Malware/Spyware). I stop the scan, then it throws up a likeness of Windows Alert "Your computer may be under attack: Do you want to block it? I tell it no, and close it. Then it throws up another warning box "Update/Activate Av Security Suite; Your Computer..blah, blah, blah. Every time you try to open ANY program: Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Defender, Windows Update, Add/Remove programs; it throws those three up (with a screech), one after the other, cancelling what you want to do (unless you pay them). Also, it keeps changing my Lan settings to Proxy instead of "Automatically Detect Settings", turns off Session cookies, and says that is an unsafe website, please choose "US" for home page and AV/AS/AM needs. I finally got connected; changed Internet Options twice/three reboots/opened control panel- my documents-task mgr, and basically attacked it: Kept it too busy to block Internet Conn. Updated "Win.Def."& "Micro. Sec. Essent." and cleaned computer : (first day; noticed that it had used internet/uninstalled/pop-ups stopped for a day/reinstalled/back the following day. Never, and still, can't remove the sys.tray icon (AV) and the "activate now" pop-up. Have searched entire computer for anything with "AV" in it--no luck. Any body have an idea where AV hides their "un-wanted" software on computers?

AV Security Suite is a scareware and ransomware program from the same family as Antivirus Soft and AntiSpyware Soft. The developers of this program are distributing AV Security Suite through the use of hacked sites, spam, and Trojans that install it onto your computer without your permission. Once installed AV Security Suite will be configured to start automatically when your computer starts. Once started it will scan your computer and state that there are numerous infections, but will not let you remove any of them until you purchase the program. All of these scan results are fake and are only being shown to trick you into purchasing the program, which you should obviously not do.

1. Reboot your computer is "Safe Mode with Networking". As the computer is booting tap the "F8 key" continuously which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode with Networking" and press Enter key. Read more detailed instructions here:

2. Launch Internet Explorer. In Internet Explorer go to: Tools->Internet Options->Connections tab.
Click Lan Settings button and uncheck the checkbox labeled Use a proxy server for your LAN. Click OK.
3. Download at least one anti-malware program from the list below and run a full system scan.
