This morning, I found myself battling a virus. I've had to deal with similar things for the last couple weeks, and I've pretty much figured out how to beat them back (MalwareBytes to get rid of the problem, Dial-A-Fix to clean out related issues), but this latest one has left me stumped. Somehow, the infection caused my Security Center to be turned off. I don't know how to reactivate it. Can anyone help?

Also, it seems to be the same infection showing up once a week or so. I get the feeling that all I've done is treat the symptoms and not cure the virus. Can anyone help me to make sure one way or another?

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3.

Please download Farbar Service Scanner and run it on the computer with the issue.
  • Make sure the following options are checked:
    • Internet Services
    • Windows Firewall
    • System Restore
    • Security Center
    • Windows Update
  • Press "Scan".
  • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
  • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.

Did as told. However, much earlier, I accessed the Services via 'Run' (as described in another thread with a similar topic) and reactivated the Windows Firewall there before rebooting. That seemed to solve the problem. However, I'm going to post the log anyway, just to be safe.
