I have been working on a severely infected system and seem to be down to one remnant I can't get rid of. I found the instructions on this website to remove Smart Virus Eliminator, but although the files and Registry entries listed are now gone from the system, the Windows Security Center still shows the Smart Virus Eliminator icon in the Antivirus section and tells me that more than one antivirus program is present (I also have NOD32 installed as the antivirus program). I searched the Registry for the two CLSIDs listed near the top of the HijackThis log below as associated with Smart Virus Eliminator, but neither is in the Registry so I'm not sure how to remove them. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you for the response Blade, but I couldn't keep the computer any longer so I finally formatted the hard drive and reinstalled everything, scanned all of the owner's data files using my own system and then restored them to hers before returning it. I never did figure out how they are able to hook the Windows Security Center without any Registry entries I could find, nor files I could find nor any running process or service I could find. It's certainly a new one on me and it appears it's new to NOD32, SuperAntispyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Nothing finds whatever it is they used to do this. Thanks anyway.
