I have a machine infected with WinWeb Security 2008. I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes but the infection wasn't detected/cleaned. I deleted the following registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{D5DF7C9D-6069-4552-8B0C-D02A912FC889}

But couldn't locate the item:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "WinwebSecurity"

Also, I cannot find the following files/folders anywhere on the machine (including searching for hidden files).

c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinwebSecurity
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinwebSecurity\Languages
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinwebSecurity\config.udb
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinwebSecurity\init.udb
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinwebSecurity\WinwebSecurity.exe
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinwebSecurity\Languages\English.lng

I also tried scanning with spybot with no success.
