I purchased Spy Doctor in order to remove AntivirXP08 from my computer. Spy Doctor appears to have removed this from the computer, but the Fake Warning Sign on the screen is not removed! When first infected, this sign, blue screen and rearrangement of the icons appeared in place of the dolphin's swimming in the sea background and icons in the places where I had them prior.
How can I delete this sign and recover the previous screen? I have tried doing a recovery point, which has not worked!

Run a full system scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware in Normal Mode (Instructions).

When done, copy and paste the results of the MBAM log report in your next reply. The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Reagardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
