A post on May13 06 seemed to indicate a similar problem with a different malware program. I am getting continual system alerts - and then I click on it and it takes me to a page trying to sell me a program I do not need. In addition - the program wiped out my IE6 home page and now it goes directly to its site. I used AVG Anti Spyware - but it still comes up. They are trying to sell me Virus Protect Pro (VirusProtectPro.com). Can you help me get rid of this nonsense?

VPP is more often than not accompanied by other malware. Follow the instructions below to find and remove.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
