I am running Windows XP SP2.
I followed the instructions on this website for the automated removal of VirusProtect by running SmitfraudFix in Safe Mode.
It seems to have done the trick as I no longer get any fake system alert messages and everything seems to be running normally.
However, just for peace of mind sake, I also attempted the route of eventually posting a hijackthis log file.
I ran Disk Cleanup followed by Adaware 2007.
I did not run Spybot S & D, but I did run McAfee Stinger.
Adaware continues to find an MRU infection C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Recent :Count 1
Is this a good file??
Also, Stinger does NOT detect any unclean files, and neither does a most updated version of BitDefender Internet Security 2008.
Windows Defender also does not detect any malaware.
I have attached a fresh hijackthis log.
Can someone please verify that I am not infected and can access secure websites with peace of mind.
I am presently installing the most recent Windows Security Updates
