Hello, my new friends! I am experiencing the famed fake windows security center as well as occasional virus warnings in a balloon from the tray. I have a machine that I have lost a lot of sleep over trying to beat this malware. Here are the tools I have already used... AVG 8, Norton AV 2007, and Spyhunter 3. I have also attempted to run Windows Live One Care scan, but the machine reboots itself before it can finish it's scan. Out of all the scans I have done, the only one picking anything up is OneCare and since it is unable to complete it's scan, I can't get to the point where i can remove any infections. I have also run sysinternals process explorer and found that the security center popup is somehow bound to explorer.exe! I have spent quite a it of time trying to figure this one out for myself, but I am so stumped that I can really use some more help. Thank you so much! Here is my HiJackThis logfile: Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2

Cancel this. I figured it out by following another posts instructions and changing the file names to the names of my discovered infected files. Thank you all very much for having such a helpful site. This thread can now be closed.
