Windows Protection Suite invaded my system around August 13. I have used Malware Bytes and Spyware Doctor to remove it, as well and several other paid and free softwares. I have System Mechanic installed on my system and it identifed Windows Protection Suite as the antivirus and the FIREWALL. I upgraded my System Mechanic program to include antivirus and firewall. Initially, I could not install it, but finally over rode the antivirus message and it installed. When I look to see the status of firewall and antivirus, it says that System Mechanic is the antivirus, BUT Windows Protection Suite is still the firewall. AVG has looked over numerous system files and they contend that all is well. However, there has to be one little piece still existing somewhere. I have spent two weeks trying to find it. I am ready to through the laptop out the window. Reinstalling windows xp is not an option, because I cannot find the disks!

Someone please HELP!

Hooray!! I have resolved the Firewall Problem. I suggest that in addition to the Spyware Doctor, and Malware Bytes that one installs PCTools Firewall Plus 6 which is a free software. It just came out Sept. 1, 2009. It will identify the Windows Protection Suite as the Firewall and allow you to override it.
Cannot tell you how excited I am to have resolved this problem! I hope that this will help someone else and keep them from devoting night and day to resolving their problem!

I have found and read numerous pieces of info about Windows Protection Suite. I honestly thought that I had finally gotten the last piece related to the firewall. Spyware Doctor and Malware Bytes were supposed to fix it and I would have thought so. However, when I installed System Mechanic Pro, the firewall won't load. I got the free firewall to load that was on the site with Spyware Doctor. It was the firewall and I was happy. I turned off the laptop last night and when it rebooted this morning the free software was not the firewall and windows protection suite was the firewall again. I have not had any pop up related to Windows Protection Suite. I assumed that the free firewall from the folks who make Spyware Doctor is safe, especially since it took Spyware Doctor to clean up the remnants of Windows Protection Suite that were located in the Local Hosts folder.
