Hi there

Malware Protection is itself the virus - it's a type of infection known as a rogue Programme as it pretends to be a real anti spyware/virus programme to scare you into purchasing it.

If you do have malware protection, have a look at the removal guide for it here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-malwareprotector2008

If it is that particular rogue, follow the instructions if you can and see if that helps to clear it. If that doesn't work, post again to get more expert help!

I have the same virus that the OP posted. This is a new virus and is not the same as the one referenced in the above link. I have access to the internet in safe mode. The virus went away for a few hours, but it came back. I haven't been able to get rid of the virus using Malwarebyte's, Super Antispyware, along with several other programs.

EDIT: Good news, I have rid the virus from my wife's desktop. The virus is still on mine so I hope to resolve it soon.
