Someone who was using my computer accidentally downloaded the Virus Protect program. I used Smitfraud and Panda Security and I think I got all of it out. The problem is I scanned with Spy Hunter (the free scan) and it shows that my computer is still infected. Spybot, AVG (free version) Spy Sweeper (expired subscription and not updated for about six months) and Ad-Aware all show that my computer is clean. Is the problem Spy Hunter (Spybot read Spy Hunter as a problem) or is Spy Hunter noticing something the other programs aren't?
