Hi all..my first post here so hello to all.

Ok I had that nasty viruswebprotect2008.com virus on my machine a few days ago and while I think I got rid of it(hopes) and system is back to normal im still getting the message VIRUS ALERT! in the system tray and also in a few places this message is present..even in my steam chat windows at the very bottom. I followed The guide that was posted here

And was able to get my c and d drive to show again and acsess to the cmd promt. So everything except this little "VIRUS ALERT!" reminder.

Anyway know how to get of it?

thanks for listening

Open the SDFix folder or download XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf and save it to your desktop. <- for Windows XP ONLY.
  • Right-click on XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf and select Install from the Context menu.
  • Note: To download the .inf file, go to File, choose "Save page as" All Files and save XP_VirusAlert_Repair.inf to your desktop.
  • Then reboot to apply the changes.
Rescan again with MBAM (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.
