I'm trying to clean up my mother-in-law's PC. She said she was getting pop-up security alerts that were suspicious. I booted up and logged in to her account, but didn't see anything suspicious. I ran RKill right away anyway. It stopped two processes. Then I did a full scan with Malwarebytes, which found an infected registry key (Rogue.SecuritySuite) and an infected registry value (Trojan.FakeAlert.Gen). I had Malwarebytes remove both. The PC seems to be running fine now, but I want to make sure it's all clean before I return it to her. Is there anything else I should do?

The OS is Windows XP Home. Not sure if it's important to note, but the PC is eMachines model T3302 (2.0GHz 512RAM 160GB)

I appreciate your help!
