After a long and frustrating “trial and error” :ranting: week-end I successfully got my laptop up and running again. This is my second struggle with a “malware program” in two years. Because of the “Hijack” of my Program folder and the hidden file feature of this particular “XP Repair” malware program, it made my first experience look like a piece of cake.

The moral of the story is NEVER NEVER EVER allow a blocked site or blocked program to gain access to your computer. Whenever your anti-virus/anti-malware protection program asks you if you want to block access to your computer ALWAYS be sure to hit the YES button.

FWIW, after a week-end of “Googling” the web for solutions to my problem I came across this Article - How to fix "Windows XP Recovery" Malware Wednesday, June 8, 2011 - by Brian Richards Tags: Malware, virus removal, Windows XP Recovery, General at http://www.interworks.com/blogs/brichards/2011/06/08/how-fix-windows-xp-recovery-malware

IMHO, Brian Richards of Interworks Inc gives you the easiest step by step instructions to follow to get rid of this particular type of “Windows Recovery Malware”. For a much more detailed step by step solution with illustrations see:
