Hello. I have somehow gotten WiniShield onto my machine. I followed the instructions as posted on many sites across the internet as to how to manually and 'automated' removal. Unfortunately, it killed my Avast! antivirus completely, so I had to uninstall it to get the BSODs to stop. Now I have gotten everything cleaned from the registry but for some reason it's still got my windows security all messed up. I get the critical stop error at random times and the 2 little red popups that come in from the sides of my screen with the pretend viruses on them. Here's my log. Anything you guys can recommend will be terrific.

Thanks in advance.

Aaron

========================== EDIT ==================================
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [fuqes2sn.exe] C:\Windows\system32\fuqes2sn.exe seems to be a possible culprit. Perhaps they've gotten into the habit of burying a random-named .exe file into the windows registry... How pleasant. On another site I noticed this article
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qi...07142114AA2AfaG
Note the entry from 'max' where he references "Ku2qr7.exe".
I am backing up my registry and rebooting now. Will re-edit if successful.

Yeah. That seemed to have done the trick. I now have anti-virus, anti-spyware AND anti-malware applications running on this machine 24/7. Only thing is I notice my malware program notifying me constantly (like every ten minutes or so) of attempts from the malware IP: 91.214.45.73. I have the address completely blocked though so I shouldn't get any more problems from said addy...
