I got one of those AIM viruses from my friend because I haven't had one in forever and it didn't look very suspicious. Anyway, Spybot got rid of most of the stuff I think, but it keeps detecting all these overrides like Firewal Override and Anti-Virus Override. I haven't been able to run my anti-virus program because of this. Any ideas on how to get rid of these?

Yeah, thats it, but when I got to security center everything is greyed over and I can't click or change anything.

Did you read the link in that discussion?: Why does Spybot-S&D flag changes in the Windows Security Center?

If you changed the settings yourself you can safely tell Spybot to exclude those detections from further scans.
In order to do so please right-click each in turn, then click "exclude this detection from future scans". That way, should any other part of security center settings change, Spybot will still detect those.
The same is true if you have another security solution installed (like McAfee Security Center or Norton Internet Security). These programs also disable the Windows Security Center in order to take care of things themselves.

What anti-spyware/anti-virus programs are you using? One of them may have changed the settings without you realizing it.

I use AVG Free for anti-virus. I don't think that's what changed it though because this has only happened since I got the virus from my friend and his anti-virus software also stopped working, but I did a system restore and everything seems to be fine now. Thank you for your help.
