I'm trying to make a reply about Smart Protection virus, but system won't let me reply until I've made this entry it seems.


My solution to  this virus on on Win xp computer was to take out hard drive, connect to another computer and rename the randomly named folder in Documents and settings\All Users\ Application Data folder  (You may have to enable the 'show hidden folders' option before you can see the Applications Data folder).


Hard Drive can then go back into the affected PC for 'disinfecting' in ways discribed on internet.
