I joined becaue VirusProtectionPro Infected my XPpro computer. I followed advice found on here at beepingcomputer.com and was able to remove 99% of the symptoms (including removal of the systray icon). (10 hrs so far)

But, my web browsers (firefox and IE) keep getting hijacked and auto-loading unwanted pages.

I trust that someone here can help me remove the rest of the problem?

Hi grwd,

Download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop. (compatible with Windows 2000, NT, XP, Vista)

* Double-click on rr-free-setup.exe to install in C:\Program Files\RogueRemover.
* During the installation an icon will automatically be created on your Desktop.
* Double-click on the RogueRemover icon to launch the program and select Check for Updates.
* If prompted, click Download to receive the latest updates.
* When completed, close the update window.
* Select "Scan" and the program will walk you through the remaining steps.

If that doesn't remove VirusProtectPro completely, please Post a HijackThis Log in the in the Hijack and Analysis Forum by following the directions in this link; Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log .
Please do not post the log in this forum.
